The Avalon Community Association offers cost-as-a-barrier assistance for those facing financial difficulties who would like to participate in our programs. Please email [email protected] for more information PRIOR to the registration date.

*Please note that although Home Alone is for children aged 9 and over, the Government of Saskatchewan recommends that children are not left home unsupervised until they are 10 years of age. The Avalon Community Association is offering this program to prepare children for when they reach the age of 10. We stress that although this class will prepare children for staying home alone, it is up to the parent/guardian to make the ultimate decision for children readiness to stay in the home without adult supervision.

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!

Plant fundraiser for CP Seeley Park!

Spring officially arrived and planting season is just around the corner, and the ACA is bringing you another exciting fundraiser for our CP Seeley Park Enhancement project!

We have partnered with Growing Smiles Fundraising and DeVry Greenhouses so you can purchase beautiful flowers, herbs and vegetable plants at an excellent price all while supporting your community! Plants and flowers are an excellent way to get outdoors with your family; and a garden, no matter the size, is a wonderful tool to teach children where our food comes from and about eating healthy.

Please visit our fundraising website: https://avalon.growingsmilesfundraising.com/home and check out the variety of products we have to offer. Everything, with the exception of the hanging basket, patio planter and strawberry plant, comes in a pack of 10. Chat with your neighbour(s) or friend(s) about sharing to spread the variety!

You can also complete an order form by contacting [email protected], or click on an image below to print your own & see more information.

All orders and payment are due by May 5, 2020. Pick up of orders is on May 19 from 5 – 7 PM at 308 Wilson Cres. If you have any questions, or need more information, please contact us!

Thank you for supporting the ACA and the CP Seeley Park Enhancement Project!
