Did someone say FREE ICE CREAM? 🍦

On Saturday, September 12, The Daily Scoop will be opening at 3pm for the final time this year. And EVERYTHING will be FREE!! They will be open until all stock is cleared out.

In addition, we are thrilled to announce that the staff will be generously donating their salaries, and the owners, Pat & Marla, will match this amount PLUS all tips for this day to be donated to the Avalon Community Association! Half will be going to our CP Seeley playground enhancement project and half will be going to the Rink at John Lake Park!

We truly thank the owners and staff of The Daily Scoop for this amazing fundraiser and we appreciate their ongoing support of our community association. Please show your support of the ACA by stopping by The Daily Scoop on Saturday!

Thank you, Ariane!

The ACA Board is sad to announce the retirement of our longest serving board member, Ariane Zerr.

Ariane has donated 30 years of her time to the Avalon Community Association and other Community Associations in a variety of roles; she has held every position on the Board of Directors and has shared her talents through instructing children and adults in various crafts and ceramics classes throughout the years. Her wealth of knowledge and experience of the community will be missed by all of us!

Ariane was the original Director of Events who brought the ever popular avaLAWN afFAIR to our community; an event that will mark its 10th anniversary this year.

Please join us in sincerely thanking Ariane for her commitment for our community over the past 3 decades. We wish her and Larry all the best as they enter the next chapter of their lives.
