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!

CP Seeley Park fundraiser!

Saddle up for a fundraiser for the CP Seeley Park park upgrades!  (And just in time for Christmas!🎅🏻)

The ACA board is selling Cowboy’s Caviar, made in Moose Jaw, with 100% Canadian beef. It comes in 5 delicious flavours: Original, Teriyaki, Peppered, Hot & Sweet, and Candy. This is not your traditional beef jerky; it is more like a pepperoni stick with the flavour of jerky. Seriously, this is some good stuff!! 😋

Each package is 170 g (competitors are 80 g). These sell in stores for $11 – $13, but you can buy from us for only $10/package! 👍

This fundraiser will be on until January 20, 2020. We will have cash & carry available this weekend at our Skate & Slide. We will also be taking orders (cash & carry depending on product availability) at our winter program registration night on January 8th.

These would make great stocking stuffers, are the perfect addition to your appy trays, and have a long shelf life so they would be excellent to have for the lake/picnics next summer! ☀️

To place an order: contact any board member, send a message through Facebook, or email [email protected]

Thank you in advance for your support!

Fundraising for CP Seeley Park has begun!

Our first fundraiser for our new community park will be the “Drop & Go” at all Sarcan locations in Saskatoon.

Here’s how it works:

  • take your recycling to any Sarcan location in Saskatoon
  • go to the computer terminal inside
  • our fundraiser code is under the email “[email protected]
  • enter the amount of bags you wish to donate; the terminal will print the tags
  • place the tags on your bags and give them to a staff member
  • you’re done 🙂

The ACA will receive 98% of your recycling amount!

Thank you so much for supporting our fundraising efforts! Watch for more in the coming months as we work towards our goal of building the enhancement to CP Seeley Park next spring!

Our big announcement!

You have waited patiently! Here’s our BIG NEWS!!😀

Each year the City of Saskatoon Community Services Department/Recreation & Community Development Division accepts grant proposals from Community Associations across the city for Park Enhancements.

This past Spring the ACA formed a committee of Chad Malinowski, Hayley McCallum & Angela Strand, with the help of Craig McCallum and JT Sprinklers, and submitted our first ever Park Enhancement grant proposal. The committee saw a need for further development at CP Seeley Park, located at Niderost Street and Underwood Avenue, to enhance the park to be more than the existing “tot lot” and welcome older children.

We are VERY proud today to announce that we were awarded the full grant! 👍

The plan is to build a new structure, which has been approved by the city, catered to older children, east of the existing play area.

We look forward to the Avalon community supporting us in this endeavour and our fundraising efforts to meet the rest of the requirements needed to enhance this playground for children in years to come!😀
