Recently, you may have noticed something new in front of the Whyte Ridge Community Centre at 170 Fleetwood Road. It is our new digital sign; replacing the old sign that has become such a familiar sight since 2007.
While it was great to have the old sign, it was difficult to change (especially in poor weather) and very limited in the message it could display. The new sign has an updated look with our new web page address and a full color LED display measuring 2 feet by 8 feet! The new sign will open a world of possibilities for communicating community events and news as well as advertising to help raise much needed funds for the community centre.
The new sign was entirely funded by the City of Winnipeg’s Land Dedication Grant. A big thank you to Councillor Marty Morantz for his assistance in procuring the funding. This sign is just the beginning of a whole host of big changes we hope to see at our community centre over the coming years including the construction of a gymnasium and expanded community centre, outdoor exercise equipment and further additions to the beautiful natural prairie, interpretive trail and butterfly garden which have already added so much to our facility. If you like the sound of these proposed changes, please get involved and volunteer your time to help make these plans a reality!
