What an amazing weekend at Thorncliffe Greenview for Winterfest.
Friday evening The 56 had free family bowling and their usual delicious fare and coolies. If you have not been down, you should make it a point to attend. We have amazing staff to serve you. While over in the arena we had 96 jam can curlers and visitors. We served over 120 smokies, potato salad and all the fixings. This proved to be a night of fun and I am sure everyone had a good time. Thank you to Aaron and Emily, first time volunteers, welcome to our home. Once again on Saturday in The 56 there was free family bowling which was well attended. In the Main hall we hosted the movie Frozen 2 and from all indications we will be having more. This was well attended and our surprise visit by Elsa, was a big hit even with some of the old children, right Sean Barber? We will be hosting another one for sure. How nice to sit back on a Sunday and take it all in again, all the happy faces, this gives our committee a happy feeling with a job well done. Our committee is Diana Christie, Melissa LaCoste and myself. Thank you to the parents who came out and to the curlers on Friday, Winterfest needs more of you.
Did you have fun and enjoy our movie? Let us know. Diana, Missy, and I had a great time too and we think that it went very well. We were happy with the great turn out and were depending on this to offer more movies.
Elsa’s company name is Ice Princess Parties. You can contact her on Facebook.
Easter is up next on April 4, 2020 from 12:30pm-4:30pm. Activities and games are being planned with snacks provided. No lunch will be served.
We are looking into the possibility of hosting another Movie afternoon on May 2. Keep an eye on our bulletin boards, website and social media for information.
Till next time!

January’s Community Relations Report

Friday December 13 turned out to be a very exciting time at Thorncliffe Greenview Community Centre. 501 tickets were sold for our annual Christmas party and dance. This was our biggest party to date and it appeared a good time was had by all. Pretty little faces with endless smiles met and had their pictures taken with Santa. There were treats and goody bags handed out by Santa’s helpers. Our D.J. once again had everyone out dancing and having a good time. Because of the numbers everything was a bit slow and we apologize for this and thank you for your patience. We have come up with some answers for our next parties and hope the waits will not be as long.
A feat this large would not be possible without generous donations from Thorncliffe Safeway, Beddington Co-op, Hunterhorn Save On Foods, and our own TGWL. Thank you very much for your continual support of our programs.
Gift certificates and door prizes were made possible for us by the way of the community association, thank you to Kevin Kromm, these prizes were greatly appreciated.
This was a big setup for our staff to set up and make room for everything that we needed once again thank you.
To our chef and assistant Donna and Abody, thank you for the delicious meal. We had put out a request for a chair for Santa and Grant Symon, one of our new director’s, made arrangements to build us one. It will be used for many years to follow. Stacey McDade, Sandy Nevin, and Lisa helped us get the goody bags ready. The saying many hands create less work is certainly true.
In closing Diana, Melissa and myself want you to know that all your efforts are greatly appreciated, thank you very much. The young ones that we are entertaining are our future so let’s show them they are loved.
It took some perseverance but we managed to obtain the movie Frozen 2 for Winterfest. The next event will be the Easter Caper on April 4, 2020.
See you all there!
Till next time! Take care,
