Shout Out!

The Avalon Community Association recognizes those individuals, businesses and organizations for their contributions to Your Community. Whether large or small, we could not be where we are without the assistance of others in our community.

Please help us in showing your appreciation by thanking these individuals, patronizing the businesses and supporting the organizations.

The ACA would like to extend our gratitude to Avalon resident, K. Becker, for personally donating 12 bags of recycling at the end of June to our ongoing Sarcan fundraiser. This netted us an additional $186.15 towards our Rink Rebuild! Thank you!

We want to thank the Saskatoon Fire Department & Saskatoon Police Service, in particular East Side Sargent Eric Flogan, for their participation in our Canada Day bike parade. We really appreciated them giving up their time to be our official Parade Marshalls!

We wish to extend a huge THANK YOU! to Jen McPhail for her amazing design and creativity that went into our fundraising posters.

The Daily Scoop for their tremendous offer of a season long waffle cone fundraiser. An incredible show of community support! Thank you to Marla & Pat for this wonderful opportunity to raise money for our outdoor rink rebuild!

The ACA extends our sincere appreciate to Amanda Scherr for her creativity and talent. Amanda made all the posters at the avaLAWN afFAIR: directing traffic flow to washrooms, exits and other parts of the fair.  Her bright, bold signs were easy to read and assisted our attendees in finding their way around the event. 

November 2023 – We wish to extend our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Mr. Dan Boyle of Williams Lake, BC. Mr. Boyle has been a long – term supporter of our winter Growing Smiles campaign; buying flowers through the fundraiser for family members in Saskatoon. When he found out we were not running the campaign this year, he still sent us a cheque for $100. Mr. Boyle is a life – long volunteer in his own right; volunteering in all communities he has lived in so he “understands what a struggle non-profits have in the area of fundraising.” We could not be more thankful for this incredible donation from him!

Thank you to the team behind the amazing inaugural 2023 Avalon New Year’s Eve fireworks display! The fireworks were planned and purchased by Hayley & Craig McCallum. The platforms for the fireworks were built and the actual show was presented by Kirk Baillie and Craig McCallum.

And a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to the park and watched the show! We never dreamed we would have the size of crowd that we did! This was the ACA’s thank you to all of YOU for supporting us. 2023 was our 40th anniversary, so if you are a new member, or have been a long term ACA card holder, we thank you for all the support over the years!

We would love to make this an annual event. To do so, we will need to fundraise &/or receive a gift from a corporate sponsor(s). If you would like to contribute to our 2024 New Year’s Eve fireworks show, please contact [email protected]
