École Steffie Woima Fundraising Society members are now ready to build our playground having raised the full amount required.

The fundraising committee has worked tirelessly to accomplish this, and receiving a Community Facility Enhancement Grant in the amount of $50,000 put us over the top! The playground will be built on the south side of the school.

The community build is scheduled for Aug. 20-23 inclusive from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. This is a COMMUNITY BUILD and we need your help. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and dressed appropriately for work (closed toe shoes, t- shirts etc.).

If you are interested in volunteering please e-mail swesplayground@yahoo.com, call Terri Lucas at 403-887-3531, or just stop by on one of the build dates.

Food and beverage will be provided for all volunteers. Please come prepared with a shovel, rake, wheelbarrow, hammer, and drill if you have them. A full list of tools required can be e-mailed to you if you have other tools available for use. We are also in need of large pry bars, stepladders, and someone to cut lumber into smaller sizes before the build.

Build schedule is as follows:

August 20 – 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. prep of area, layout for hole drilling. 10 volunteers required; 9-10:30 a.m. drill holes, pre-build equipment. 20-30 volunteers required.

August 21 – 8 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. – Install equipment. 20 volunteers required.

August 22 -8 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. – Install equipment. 20-30 volunteers required.

August 23 -8 a.m. – until completion – Pour concrete and disperse pea gravel. 20-30 volunteers required.

We are also in desperate need of a crane or bobcat that can lift a 4,700 pound picnic rock. If you are able to donate this please contact Colleen Watson directly at 403-381-0277.

Thank you to the following sponsors — without your support the playground would not have been possible. Platinum – Doug Borrowman of TD Bobcat, Canadian Wellhead Isolation and Swainson family; Gold – Rona, LaFarge Concrete and Wasteco Disposal Inc.; and private – Isaac Bahler and Steffie Polar Dip contributors.
