LCA Family Skate is March 20

It’s time to say goodbye to winter the only way we know how — with a Free Family Skate at the Optimist Arena on Saturday, March 20 from 4:30PM – 6:00PM

Come get reacquainted with your neighbours after a long winter hibernation!  Or if you’re a hockey parent, today you can skate too!

There might be hot dogs (still trying to line up a BBQ) and there might be prizes.  There also might be people telling you about the LCA and what we do and how we need a new chairperson next year.  But this isn’t a time share “presentation” — you can push right past us and skate, skate, skate!

Now, if you have a BBQ to lend, or want to help on Saturday, Amy Mader would sure like to hear from you.  You can email her at Pretty please!

Everyone Can Walk to Fight Arthritis — Will You?

The Arthritis Society’s “Walk to Fight Arthritis” is coming in May, but now is the time to register, raise pledges, and share your Arthritis story.

Kelly Pierson, a longtime Friend of Lakeview, passed us a note this week about the Arthritis Society’s upcoming “Walk to Fight Arthritis.”  The Society is organizing 18 walks all over Canada on Sunday, May 30 and now is the time to register and start raising pledges.

There is no minimum pledge level required to participate in the walk, but the Society has a neat “pledge plan” developed to give you ideas about how anyone could raise $250.  Stop the pain of arthritis without much pain of fundraising, so to speak.

One More Thing:  They are also collecting stories about how Arthritis has touched people.  Whether you’re struggling with the disease, or it has touched you in another way, they would love to hear your story.  For every story shared, the makers of Tylenol will donate $5 to the Arthritis Society.

Registration for the walk, or to share a story, is quick and easy.  Just head over to and sign up!

Want to try Archery?

The Saskatchewan Archaeological Society is organizing an archery workshop to members and non-members.   They’re looking for 15 people to make a Regina class.

Here’s some detail, via Kelly.  I’ m just passing this along…

Are you interested in trying archery?

The Sask. Archaeological Society is offering a workshop for both members and non-members, in coordination with archery clubs in both Regina and Saskatoon.  Kim Weinbender is working with Talina to organize the Regina event.

The club will provide all of the equipment, the range, the instructor and the 1 1/2 hour lesson (per day).  For all of this, the cost is $150.

If we can get 15 people to sign up, it’ll be $10.00 per person.  Keep in mind, the cost will be higher, if we have less than 15 people!

When: Thursday, March 11th at 7:00
Sunday, March 14th at 4:30

PLEASE LET KIM KNOW OF YOUR INTEREST BY MONDAY!!!  I know it’s short notice but we need to let the archery club know numbers.

We will use the day that most people can attend.  If you’ve got questions, give Kim a call at 306-525-0840.

Who: Anyone interested.  Recommended that children be over the age of 10.

Music and Movement for Kids

I know this might be a little late, but in case some of you are interested I thought I would post this.

The Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Center has a program called ‘Music and Movement for Kids.” It’s a fun class that involves you and your small child. These classes are great to introduce your child to the wonderful world of dance and music. The Classes Start Wed. March 3, from 10 AM to 10:45 AM (oops! That’s tomorrow!) Maybe you won’t be able to make it tomorrow, but if you are still interested, call Rosa at 757-8993
