The vision for a new playground for the youths in grades 4 – 6 is beginning to establish a strong base.

The Fox Creek for the Children’s Fundraising Society received several donated items, from various community groups, to use as prizes to generate funds for the new playground in a raffle.

The Society then donated these items to Fox Creek’s Parent Council to use in a raffle. The society was unable to do a raffle, as it does not have interest in the property of the playground.


Representing Parent Council, L: Jenn Ashmore and Robin Moon presented a BIG cheque for the amount of $6210.00 to Fox Creek for the Children’s Fundraising Society, Lara Stadnyk, Wendy Rieger and Gord Ashmore.

The Society and Parent Council sold 621 tickets, resulting in $6210 in funds towards the playground.

The draw was made at Christmas Chaos on Nov. 14th.

The winners were:

  • 1st Prize – Family Bike package, donated by The Lions Club – Winner Tricia Mott
  • Also included was a donated family pass to the Nordic & Trail Club
  • 2nd Prize – Silver Birch golf membership, donated by Silver Birch – Winner Brandon Pauling
