Such a great day for the Family Skate!

The Deer Ridge Community Association’s Annual Family Winter Skate was a tremendous success. 

With Mother Nature contributing the perfect day ( +10 C), we had a minimum of 150 people attend over the day. Our best attendance ever. 

We gave out 280 Hot Dogs, 150 bottles of water, 2 full containers of Hot Chocolate and a container of Coffee. 

Thank you to our Fantastic Volunteers who again kept the event moving and all who attended very happy and well fed. 

Special Thanks to 
-Lanis for organizing the the Hot Chocolate/coffee from Starbucks. 

-Christina Steed [of Calgary-Fish Creek MLA office] for donating some of the bottled water and the condiments. Also free Hockey pucks and blow up balls-giveaways for the kids. 

-Deer Ridge Community Association for donating the the hotdogs, buns and all the support, and miscellaneous items needed to put it all together. 

I would like to thank the following volunteers who donated their time and efforts on the day, on the ground, to ensure the people of the the Deer Ridge Community enjoyed their time at this event. 

Lanis, Brandon, Gertrud, Wendell, Andrea, Troy, Dave, Kim, Brent, Bob, (Cydney & Collette)

Without the help of the above volunteers, we could never be this successful and you are greatly appreciated. 

I have included a couple of pics.
