CVRC supporting new Wynndel Playground project.
 
The Wynndel Community Centre (WCC) and a group of community volunteers has been working for a number of years towards the goal of a community playground in their neighbourhood.  
This month (May 2021) all that hard work will come to a happy conclusion with the installation of a multi-component playground on the old school site next to the WCC, and members of the Creston Valley Rotary Club will be there to assist in the installation...in particular for the swing set.
 
The Creston Valley Rotary Club has made a substantial donation to the project in the memory of long-time club member, Gordon Rodney, who passed away last year.    Gordon Rodney was a long time resident of Wynndel and was well known for his years of community service.  The donation has been matched by the Rodney family to also honour Gordon.  These donations will cover the complete cost of the Swing set and a special bench to honour Gordon Rodney.
 
Kudos to the organizing committee, lead by Lauriane Robert, who have garnered support from a broad community base and who have successfully raised sufficient funds to cover the complete cost of the project.  Financial grants from various levels of government and the private sector, along with significant donations of in-kind have made this possible.  
 
Congratulations WCC, Lauriane, and the community volunteers for making this a reality for the Wynndel community.
