President's Message SPRING 2017
Past President's Message Spring 2017
SPRING in Lakeridge is a beautiful season...the melting snow gives way to our fantastic neighbourhood. The sights and sounds of a quiet winter give way to birds chirping and children playing. It also shows the signs of the needed TLC. Street sweeping will be coming soon. Stray garbage is caught in trees and fence lines. Please feel free to keep our neighbourhood beautiful. If you think it looks messy, clean it up. We can all do our part!
SPRING in Lakeridge also means our Annual General Meeting is approaching. Lakeridge Community Association is a volunteer effort. We have a constant requirement for individuals that want to make a difference in this community. If there is a position that is vacant, come on out and lend your expertise to something. If there is a position that interests you, but is currently filled, come out anyway. There are positions that can be shared to make them even better than they are. Sit at the table with us and learn what is going on around Lakeridge. Park improvements, playground improvements, community signs, even a new inter-change all affect the Lakeridge experience. This place is great. Come out and help work on keeping it that way!!!

SCHOOL SIGN UPDATE:
The vandals were found by the police with the help of the 'social media community'. They didn't admit to vandalizing the sign, but agreed to come out and give their time to help repair boards and paint the rink. We are still waiting for them to fulfill their commitment.
If you know who they are, maybe you could encourage them to 'do the right thing'.
A note to the community...(FALL 2016)
On June 26th at 3am, 5 youths decided to remodel the sign in front of St. Luke School. They tore a limb off the tree in front of the school and proceeded to batter and destroy the letters and rails on the sign.
These signs were donated to the schools a few years ago at the cost of $9000 each.
The damage to the sign is estimated at $1200 which will be another cost the LCA will cover. This is the 3rd incident with damage to this sign in this calendar year.
The Saskatoon City Police have contacted the LCA and are continuing their investigation.
If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please come forward. If the vandals are found, we would like them to work off their cost of damage by helping to repair boards on the rink, paint it and also help repaint the tennis court.
This type of vandalism has been going on in our community far too often.
Do you know where your children are?
