Flint Playground Grand Opening Wrap-Up


Flint Playground Grand Opening Celebration

Wow, what a turn out!! We would like to thank everyone who came out to our celebration on October 18th and made it a huge success! The fun got underway at 10:30am with a beautiful blue sky and a mascot visit from Boston Pizza’s Fairview Lionel. While he was busy handing out cookies to everyone, Terrrrific face painter and balloon artist were busy with all the children who wanted face painting and balloons. Thanks to all the parents who patiently waited in line while their kids took a spin on the rotating net climber or a swing on the disk swing.

Later on in the morning we had a few short speeches from Dave Eisenbart thanking all the residents, volunteers and sponsors who helped make this project a reality. Calgary-Acadia MLA Jonathan Denis presented us with a cheque for $84,000 from CFEP. And Ward 9 Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra with his son in tow was also on hand to congratulate us with another project well done. To wrap up the morning we had Isaac come up to help us with our ribbon cutting.SONY DSC
