A New Look

Something is new with our printed newsletter. You may have noticed that the title has changed from “The Spirit” to “The Ridge”. The idea behind the original newsletter title was conceived some 15 years ago and it has been a fixture in our community ever since. The name “The Spirit” was meant to reflect the community spirit in Whyte Ridge, but Whyte Ridge has changed a lot since then and we felt that it was time for a change too. The new title, “The Ridge” and new look to the newsletter cover is meant to reference and be inclusive of both Whyte Ridge and Linden Ridge and to reflect a stronger sense of community.

Other changes are taking place as well, such as our new board position, Director of Diversity. We welcome our new director Shahin Shooshtari to the role, with a focus on recognizing, serving and celebrating the diverse cultures in our community. On Feb 24 we held a dinner at the community centre to celebrate this increasing diversity and invite participation in community activities. Look for other events from Shahin in the future with a focus on diversity and community. Also, look for the new Whyte Ridge Fitness park coming this spring beside the basketball court. This wheelchair accessible facility is another way we are reaching out to all members of our community and providing great recreational opportunities for all.

If you want to be a part of the positive changes in our community, then we need you! For more information about volunteer opportunities and what is coming at WRCC, please contact our president Curtis Rossow at president@whyteridge.ca.

Whyte Ridge Mini-Soccer 2019

It might be hard to tell as we hide away in hibernation, but the days are already getting longer, and spring really is coming! It’s time to start thinking about our spring time activities, including soccer!

We are looking forward to another fun season of mini soccer in Whyte Ridge! Recreational mini soccer is a great way to enjoy the May and June evenings with our children and neighbours. This year children born in the years 2011 to 2016 are welcome to play in our program.

The current plan for this year is to have all of the age groups, except U3/4, play at Whyte Ridge Elementary School. The little ones will play at Don Smith Park on Tuesdays as they have for many years. Unlike previous years, this year U5/6 will be a combined age group of children born in 2013 and 2014. This group will play on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The U7/8s, both boys and girls, will play on Mondays and Wednesdays.  You can find all the other information about mini soccer on the Whyte Ridge Community Centre Website.

We seek new experiences as means to cultivate curiosity and realize the true potential for learning.


We take the risks and disruptive leaps necessary to align new and relevant goals for learning with our rapidly changing world.


We intentionally infuse sustainability initiatives to connect environmental stewardship, social action, and community partnerships to improve the way that we live.

Henry G. Izatt is a busy place full of learning opportunities and many involved participants. Please check our website for continued updates on the many events: https://www.pembinatrails.ca/schools/henrygizatt/Pages/default.aspx
Community members have a standing invitation to become involved or volunteer in activities. Please inform us of your interest by calling the school office at 204-489-1239.

For this news article, we are sharing an overview of one or two school projects currently happening this year that fall under each of our four pillars.
Our partnership with Riverwood Square has been a delightful part of our programs for the past five years. Currently, a team of grade 9 students is spending time at Riverwood a few times a month facilitating an iPad Workshop with interested seniors. Managing email, photographs, saving documents and storing files are all topics of interest to the seniors. Both the students and seniors are enjoying this collaboration.

WRCC Winter Carnival 2019

Even though it was a cold Manitoba day, our Winter Carnival was a huge success.
Over 200 residents of Whyte Ridge and Linden Ridge braved the -35°C day to enjoy sleigh rides, a marshmallow roast as well as a little snow painting and milk jug curling. To warm up, families enjoyed free hot chocolate and both cookies and pizza.

While inside, the little ones enjoyed a play structure and activities provided by MyGym and we even had some owls come to visit from the Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre Inc. Kids also enjoyed getting glitter tattoos, crafts and some coloring.

Congratulations to all of our winters of the Jets Prize Raffle, 50/50 and colouring contests. A big THANK YOU to our many volunteers from the community including those from RBC as well as students from HGI, Grant Park, and the Vincent Massey Key Club. We could not have had such a successful event without these incredibly important volunteers.

We also would like to thank our sponsors (please see below) without whom this event would not be possible. We would like to also thank MP Terry Duguid and Councillor Lukes for their support.
