News from 43 CPLC
The Family Skate Day was held on
November 14, 2014 at Heron Park Recreation Centre with an estimated 350++
children, youth and residents attending. Student volunteers from Joseph
Brant P.S and from the East Scarborough Storefront, did a great job
handing out skates and had time to skate as well. The police car in the
centre of the ice was an added attraction for young and old alike. The
assistance of all of the police and auxiliary officers was very much
appreciated. Thanks are extended to all of you who donated gently used
skates that were sharpened and given out to the children and youth who
needed them. Thanks are also extended to Mike and Catherine Klinck,
Centennial community residents and owner/operator of West Hill Pro-Sharp
for sharpening all of the skates.
The RIDE programme officers will be out in full force in December.
don’t drink and drive
Have a safe
and happy holiday season and a healthy and prosperous 2015
