“Neighbours Day” Soccer Event
The City of Kitchener has declared Saturday June 13 as Neighbours Day.
We’re celebrating by joining together with 2 other Ward 10 neighbourhood soccer programs for a special morning of soccer.
Saturday June 13
Knollwood Park soccer field (behind Sheppard School)
Registration: 9:30 am
Soccer/Games: 10 am to Noon
Kids 4 & under: They will be divided into groups that will circulate between stations with different games. We’ll switch after about 15 – 20 minutes and keep going as long as the kids are interested in participating (or noon if they last that long!)
Kids 5 – 7 / Kids 8 & Up: They will be divided into teams as they arrive. The plan is for each team to have a mix kids from different neighbourhoods. If we have enough kids, each team will play 2 or 3 games against different teams. If we have a smaller group, we’ll have a longer game with an intermission.
Please wear your neighbourhood soccer shirt! Bring your own ball so that we can do some warm up drills.
We’re also looking for some families to volunteer with:
– running the games
– supplying “soccer oranges” or possibly other “school-friendly” snacks (i.e. no nuts).
Neighbourhood kids soccer will start in the Spring 2015 on Tuesdays nights at Knowllwod Park (Sheppard’s field)
Soccer Program will run from May 5th to June 23rd. Open to kids from 2 years old and up that live in the boundaries of the Auditorium Neighbourhood. Starts at 6:30pm and runs to 7:30pm.
Registration will begin at the end of March. Contact email@example.com for more information

SAVE THE DATE, Neighbours!
On Monday February 2nd, the Annual General Meeting of our Auditorium Neighbourhood Association will take place at the Subscriber’s Lounge at the Auditorium from 7:30 to 9:00 pm.
If you’ve ever wondered what mischief your neighbourhood association is up to, you should attend. Updates will be given on the recent activities of the Auditorium Neighbourhood Association by members of the 2014 ANA Board.
You’ll also have the opportunity to meet the District Facilitator from the Community Programs and Services branch of the City of Kitchener, Ms. Abbie Grafstein. She has been this neighbourhood’s liaison to the larger machinery of municipal governance for several years, and a fabulous resource for the ANA.
Finally, if you’ve ever thought of getting more involved in your immediate sphere of influence, the opportunity now looms large. New executive and board members are welcomed so that the familiar adage that ‘many hands make light work’ might be given the fullest effect.
We look forward to seeing you there!
To all people in the Eastward area… as we are well aware, there have been a rash of garage, house, and car break-ins recently.
Constable Kurtis Glode of the Waterloo Regional Police Dept has set up a community meeting for Thursday Sept. 18, from 6pm-8pm at Bethany Church on Lancaster. He would like to have as many people as possible from the neighbourhood to attend. The police department wants to discuss the situation and also advise all of what we as a community can do.
Please share this meeting information with all your neighbours. Let’s make everyone aware of this important event and have a good turn out.
