President's Message SPRING 2017
Past President's Message Spring 2017
Another fabulous summer has passed and we are moving toward the colors of autumn. September is a reminder that kids are headed back to school. Their excitement can cloud their attention to the roadways, so please pay attention around our school zones! I know the signs say 8am - 5pm but, the school zones remain a focal point well into the evening.
PLEASE DRIVE SAFE!
Lakeridge Community Association also launches registration for FALL programs offered to YOUTH & ADULT. Please visit our WEBSITE to learn more - www.lakeridgecommunity.ca or visit our online registration portal to enroll in a program -

LCA is pround to stand alongside two large projects in our neighbourhood. The Lakeridge Playground Project and The St Luke Playground Project both have fundraising groups surrounding those two sites. It's very exciting to see a vast improvement in our park. Projects like these do take countless hours of effort from volunteers. If you are interested in donating or lending a hand, please inquire.
Lakeridge CA is also reviewing the need to refurbish the RINK behind St Luke School and the Tennis Court. Both of these recreational facilities fall under the realm of the LCA. Both take TIME, MONEY and VOLUNTEER efforts to keep them running. Please lend a hand if you can!
From a new project side note, we are looking into options at building a community sign on the corner of Kingsmere Blvd. and Boychuck Dr. We have some ideas and some quotes ... Getting closer Lakeridge!
TAKE CARE OUT THERE! Enjoy the changing season...

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?
