SERVING THE COMMUNITIES OF GRANDVIEW & GILBERT
Vol 115, No. 34

By Jennifer Carniel
Many of us anticipate for the summer months to come so we can get outdoors and enjoy the sun without the snow. Grandview Gateways held their annual social event, Fun In the Sun, on Thursday, August 20, 2015 in Grandview. This is approximately the 15th year for the Fun In the Sun event. “It’s an opportunity for the people from other programs to reacquaint with the people in Grandview,” explained Carolyn Crossley, Executive Director for Grandview Gateways. “Old friends get a chance to visit and new friends are made.”
The Fun In the Sun event could not take place without the careful planning from agency staff. Staff started preparing months ago for the variety of activities and invitations went out to all the Parkland agencies in Dauphin, Ste. Rose, Winnipegosis, Russell and three agencies from Swan River. This year 87 supported individuals and 23 support workers attended Fun in the Sun which was held in the Grandview Kinsmen Community Centre. The event had wagon rides by Steve Novalkowski, a lunch, a dance and draws for a Chinese auction. The Chinese auction is a big hit because everyone receives a prize and it adds to the excitement for the supported individuals.
The Fun In the Sun event is always held in Grandview, but other communities hold other social events; Ste. Rose hosts a Valentine’s Day party and Winnipegosis hosts a Halloween Dance.
“This event is well attended each year,” noted Crossley, “And the activities change as the abilities of the participants
