Do you have opinions about the biggest walkways in Parkridge?
The Parkridge Community Association is partnering with the City of Saskatoon to see if lights are necessary in those walkways. Thanks to all those that came out and/or submitted their thoughts and opinions on the safety of the walkways in Parkridge. Attached in the link below is the PDF of the Safety Audit Summary. Feel free to review it and see what your friends and neighbours found on the safety audit.
The PCA is looking for Softball Coordinator. This position is integral for the continuation of our softball/fastball program in Parkridge. Parkridge community is rich with exceptional young athletes honing their skills and participating in sport with their friends. But without the help of volunteers, this can't happen. The softball coordinator would be responsible for finding coaches and managing allotment of uniforms and equipment at the beginning of the season. The Saskatoon Phantoms have kindly agreed to manage spring registration but we are still looking for a softball coordinator. The executive already has volunteers willing to help out someone(s) that may be interested on taking on this position. Please strongly consider signing up. Keep in mind, this doesn't need to be one person so if you and a friend are willing, this job can certainly be divided up and shared. Contact a member of the PCA executive, attend a PCA meeting or send an email or facebook message if interested!
