Flavelle playground Grand Re-opening a hit!

[nggallery id=5]


Thank you to everyone who came out to our Grand Re-Opening Celebration at Flavelle Park on October 13th! We had excellent weather and a great turn out.  The morning started off with kids of all ages playing on the playground, joining in with the games that the City of Calgary Youth Leaders were leading or being serenaded by our own Miss Daisy. Our face painters and balloon twist artist from Terrrrrific Face Painting did an amazing job and were kept busy all morning. And with all the lovely goodies that the playground committee baked everyone had enough energy to keep going all morning long!  David Eisenbart, the new President of  the Fairview Community Association spoke to the crowd to give thank you speeches and  gave a very touching thank you speech to Donna Wynnchuck for all her support in seeing the new playground becoming a reality as well as all her hard work and dedication in all the years she has been with the Fairview Association. Following that, little Henry helped Melody Eisenbart cut the ribbon at the top of the slide and then they both came sailing down!

To make this event such a success, we would like to thank Kate Daniel from Community and Neighbourhood Services for providing the face painter, balloon artist and the City Youth Leaders who did a wonderful job leading the kids in fun games. Big thank you’s also go out to Miss Daisy (Trina Nestibo) for coming and entertaining us with her beautiful music and of course to the Playground Committee who kept everyone well energized to keep playing all morning with their baked goodies!
