Many Thanks from the Community of St Peter’s Bay for the very personal and generous gift of the handmade quilt from Elsie Russell, pictured here. The quilt is a beautiful tribute of Remembrance for those who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice for Freedom in our Country. It was presented at the Complex on Remembrance Day and will now reside at the Community Office in the Dr Roddy Community Centre. The center of this amazing hand crafted quilt has the moving poem in embroidery, Flanders Fields. This is truly a most thoughtful and generous gift of Elsie’s talent as well as her patriotism and love of country.
DECEMBER 5, 2018 at 8pm Meeting at the St. Peter’s Bay Complex (old consolidated school). A DECISION IS TO BE MADE ABOUT WINTER OPERATIONS! We strongly encourage community members in the St. Peter’s Bay area to attend our AGM this year. We will be making decision on whether we will be operating this winter or not. If you are a community member and would like to volunteer on the Rink board, there will be positions available.
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Eastcoast Art Party fundraiser for the new playground in St. Peters Bay. We had a great event enjoyed by everyone who participated.
The PEI Retired Teacher’s Association presented a wooden bench with an attached plaque to Jim MacAulay on November 15, 2018. This bench is a thank you token for Jim’s tremendous contribution in terms of his work and caring for and with the retired teachers of PEI, both locally and nationally. Cynthia MacDonald, President of RTA, presented the bench and Joyce McCardle, Past President and close RTA partner with Jim, kindly spoke about his great contribution to the RTA as well as to his community as a whole.
Congratulations to Lawrence MacAulay for 30 years of service as a MP, pictured here with his wife Frances.
In light of an exciting funding opportunity available through Rural and Regional Development, the St. Peter’s Area Development Corporation has formed a sub-committee which is working toward the goal of purchasing and installing new playground equipment in the community of St. Peter’s. While there is playground equipment available to village residents at the St. Peter’s Complex and campground, this equipment is not visible to families passing through our beautiful community. The Playground Committee feels that installing equipment directly in the community, visible to anyone travelling in the area, would be a great benefit to our community.
What we are proposing is to create a playground directly within the community, in the under-utilized area by the gazebo. By doing so, we feel that families with young children will be much more likely to stop and spend time in our lovely community, thus benefiting local businesses. We also feel that young families living in the area will benefit from having another outdoor activity available, and that families considering moving to the area will see this as an attractive feature.
The funding opportunity we will be applying for requires a 50% contribution from the community. The anticipated cost of this project is estimated at $20,000, which means our goal is to raise $10,000. As such, we are asking for your support.
If you choose to contribute to this project, your generosity will be recognized on a sign located within the playground area. Donations of $500 or more will be recognized as Title Sponsors, $250-$500 as Gold Sponsors, and $100-$249 as Silver Sponsors. We will recognize all donors under $100 in a list below. A map of the community will also be included on the sign, highlighting the locations of local businesses to help encourage visitors to stop in and explore all we have to offer.
If you would like to help us improve our community through the creation of this playground, please share and support the fundraising events we will be organizing, or contact a playground committee member to make a donation.
Donations can be made out to the St. Peter’s Area Development Corporation. Please indicate in the memo area of the cheque “playground equipment” so our treasurer can more easily track fundraising for this project. Donations can be made through facebook [click here] by mail to: SPADC-Playground Committee, PO Box 143, St. Peter’s Bay, PE C0A 2A0
Thank you for your support!
