On May 13, City Councillor Devi Sharma and the Maples Community Centre hosted a Spring in to Fun community event.
There were over 1250 people in attendance, with many activities for families to enjoy. The first 100 mothers to arrive at the event were gifted with a rose in celebration of Mother’s Day.
The event included a number of children’s activities and games, special performances by the 25 RCSCC Crusader, Sea Cadets a fire truck and police cruiser.
The Sea Cadets also brought a navy ship simulator that was a cool piece of technology. The Zoology Club by West Kildonan Collegiate was a huge hit as their lizards, bunnies and snakes added to the excitement of the day.
Community members enjoyed food from several vendors such as, Hot Rod’s Filipino Grill, Extreme Fries food truck, Pizza Pizza, State Fair Mini Donuts and the Tim Horton’s Coffee truck.
It was great to have the Chief of Police, Danny Smyth and Fire Chief John Lane interacting with all guests.
