~ Summer 2018 ~
“August is like the Sunday of summer."
As we start daydreaming about the changing of fall leaves and comfy sweaters—and say goodbye to the hot temperatures - wait a minute I am not ready to have these kind of daydreams yet. This season just passes by way too quickly.
As we move into the last past of summer, I would like to recognize the work of some of the hard working and dedicating students, coaches and parents who spend their time making the summer enjoyable for our children and youth. There are many programs, camps etc. taking place around our community that add to the summer memories.
In Warman, our Summer Fun Program has been very busy this year averaging 50 participants per day. Our leaders keep the kids busy with trips to our parks, trips to the spray park, library visits, sport camps, a field trip to Route 11 Cultural Centre, as well as daily crafts, gym games and other activities. The program is an opportunity for kids to spend some time with friends and out of their homes. Our leaders ensure the kids get a good mix of active, passive, creative and free play throughout the day and week.
Thank you to our Summer Fun Program leaders this summer: Debby Wiebe, Kaylee McCallen, Gracey Powell, Sawyer Rosenthal-Hiebert, Roxy Shoemaker, Maddy Scarrow, Kaylan Brown, McKenna Sherstibetoff, Jordyn Kuzek and Kaydence Klassen. Job well done ladies! ??
We are pleased to have the Teen Summer Program back this year. This evening program offered the participants “Fear Factor” challenges, “Minute to Win It” games, gym games, water balloon fights and much more. Taylor Rucks took on this group and has done an amazing job of working with the youth this summer. Great job Taylor! ??
Also, local sports teams have been practicing their skills and competing all summer long. In fact, the Twin City Angels, our Regional U16A TCA Softball team, qualified for Nationals in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The team has been working extremely hard training and fundraising for the event. The young ladies represent a few communities which include Warman, Martensville, Osler, Delisle, Conquest and Humboldt. The girls took all the local, provincial, and Canadian pins they collected and made ribbons they can trade with other athletes attending this event. Great local ambassadors I would say!
The TCA competed in Winnipeg from August 15th to the 19th and the team did very well in their placings at this national competition. For many of the participants it was a sporting highlight/ adventure of a lifetime. Congratulations to the team, their coaches, and parents for the dedication, passion and determination. We are very proud of your accomplishments. Way to go ladies!
