WE NEED YOU!

If you did not know, the outdoor rinks are maintained 100% by volunteers. Without volunteers, there will be no ice, and the more volunteers we get – the easier the job becomes. Many of our long time volunteers no longer even have children who play hockey or use the rink. Please consider joining us. It is an easy, fun, and satisfying task.

It would be helpful if you could think about what nights would be good for you and contact the WRCA Office (call 403 271 8044 or email info@willowridge.ca). The staff will pass your information on to the ICE Volunteers Coordinator. He will contact you so that you can get out and help flood the rinks! THANKS

Looking to get involved in your community?

The Willow Ridge Community Association proudly serves the communities of Willow Park and Maple Ridge. We are always looking for volunteers to join the board or even just to flip burgers at a community event. Throughout the year we have a variety of events and activities that depend on the support of our community members. Helping out for a few hours at a BBQ or Family dance, or joining the rink team to ensure our ice is in great condition are all a part of helping to enrich our great community. Please contact our office at 403-271-8044 to find out about any upcoming volunteer opportunities.

Maybe you’d like to join the Board? Our Board of Directors meet on the third Wednesday of the month, from Sept to June, and meetings commence at 7:00 pm for approx 2 hrs. We are always looking for new members to come help us support the community. There are a variety of roles available to be filled. Please come join us at a meeting and help to create a strong community.

Any community member may attend these meetings which are usually held upstairs at the Willow Ridge Community Centre. Please phone the office at 403-271-8044 to confirm the time and location if you wish to attend.
