President's Message SPRING 2017
Past President's Message Spring 2017
As another year closes in, I always find myself reflecting on what happened through the year. A new COSTCO nearby. A new interchange at Boychuk and Highway 16. Rosewood growing at an enormous pace. All that busyness and I feel comfortable living in Lakeridge. We are very fortunate to have everything we do. Mature trees, sidewalks on both sides of the street. A fully developed park with two great schools. There is always a sense of calm and quiet here. I love it!
Saying that, we need to do our best to keep it that way. The Lakeridge Community Association exists to encourage a sense of community and to improve the quality of life for all residents within the neighbourhood. The association works to accomplish this goal by promoting and coordinating leisure programs and social activities, as well as by representing the neighbourhood.
We seem to have a real struggle to have enough volunteers sitting on the Community Association board to fill all the positions needed to be effective.
I strongly encourage you to come out to a meeting and see what we are all about! There may be something that intrigues you, and you can volunteer to a really great cause. This is our home. This is our Lakeridge.
Take care on the winter roads around Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. Safe travels to those that visit the sun over the coming months. Stay warm.

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?
