Busy Autumn in Griesbach
September and October were busy months in Griesbach. Once again we had another fantastic fall afternoon for the 2015 Shake At The Lake & Art In The Park, which keeps on getting bigger and better. (Click for photos and a full rundown).
We were delighted to have two of our incredible local builders step forward to sponsor this event: Pacesetter Homes and Homes by Avi. We appreciate their ongoing support of this community and all that we do.
This event is a huge undertaking, and would not have been possible without the tireless work of the many volunteers and community partners who helped make it happen. We’d like to thank the following:
Organizing Committee: Jen Horne, Carl Knowler, Bryan Evans, Brad Tilley, Melissa Ferr, Felicia Dewar, Dave Neufeld and Janet Watson.
Our Beer Garden Volunteers: Caitlin Ragsdale, Melody Price, Steve McIssac and Ryan Barlow.
The GCL Board of Directors, with special thanks to: Natalie Hanratty, Henny Lamers, Milena Maria… and Stacy Felkar (representing the Griesbach Playground Committee).
Our amazing volunteers: Julie and Fanny Fortin, Moheb Habib, Yiren Du, Sohee Park, Benny Xing, Brookes Merritt, Corey Gordon, Cindy and Kerris Green, Eliza Barlow, Cheng XU, Kejun Zhu and Joyce David.
Special thanks to Allison Mould and the City of Edmonton, Minister David Eggen, Stacey Dear and Akihiro Ohtake.
An estimated crowd of 300-400 showed up for the unveiling of the Ad Astor Monument at Roundel Lake, honouring RCAF members past, present and future. Click here to learn more.
We'd also like to thank everyone who helped out with our recent bottle drive. We raised close to $2,500 towards our playground.
