Volunteer Appreciation

Avonmore celebrated its volunteers on June 14 with a special evening at the Valley Zoo. We met dexter the ferret, turtle and bunny, ate ice cream, walked around the zoo looking at all the animals, spun around the merry go round and paddled around the boat with the ducks. It was a perfect night and a great way to say thank you to all of the fantastic volunteers we have in the community that ensure our programs run, that our the playground, spray deck and rink continue to be community meeting places and so much more. Without the commitment and hard work of each of our volunteers, Avonmore wouldn't be the great neighbourhood it is. Thank you!

Thank you to the City of Edmonton, Wild Earth Cafe, Acme Meat Market and Famoso Pizzeria for supporting our volunteer appreciation event and helping us celebrate our volunteers and their families.

Don't miss our next volunteer appreciation event, make your community a better place today. We are currently looking for a Sports Director to ensure our popular indoor & outdoor soccer programs continue. This can be a shared position. We are also looking to fill the roles of Secretary, Treasurer and Vice President. Please contact president@avonmore.org for more details.
