Deer Ridge Rinks -Dec 2013-5
A huge thank you to Mr. Miller and his crew for all the time and effort went into clearing snow, flooding and maintenance of the Deer Ridge Hockey Rink and the Pleasure Rink tonight. Six hours of snow blowing, scraping, shoveling and flooding to get the ice back into shape for regular use tomorrow.

Stop motion video of the Yellow Slide Playscape build in Deer Ridge – Filmed and Produced by Propellus

A very unique and interesting perspective of the Yellow Slide Playscape build in Deer Ridge. When you are involved in the build it is difficult to appreciate all of the teamwork that happens and fully understand the sequence of events as they continue to unfold.  Propellus filmed this stop motion video throughout the 4 days of the Yellow Slide Park playscape build and showed us that when we work together amazing things can happen.  Our sincere thanks to Propellus for their help in organizing the Corporate Volunteers (those energetic and hardworking  geoLOGIC Systems volunteers) and their commitment to the making of this great stop motion video. We could not have accomplished what we did without their help and we can’t thank them enough.
