This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Linden Woods Fall Classic, and the École Van Walleghem School Parent Advisory Committee deserves congratulations for the ongoing success of this amazing fundraiser.

The funds raised by this event over the last decade have been invested in playground improvements at the school, and this year we are seeing the results of this wonderful project. This year, I was honoured to be able to present the École Van Walleghem School PAC a community incentive grant to help achieve this vision.

I have enjoyed working with the École Van Walleghem School PAC to enhance shared green space at the school. The improvements include more trees at the site, an outdoor classroom, improved drainage and a trail extension that loops through the green space.

Well done, École Van Walleghem School Parent Advisory Council!

New River Heights crosswalk

There is something new on Corydon at Elm, close to Corydon Community Centre and École River Heights School: the long-awaited new crosswalk has finally been constructed.

This has been a dangerous intersection for pedestrians for a long time, and after 10 years of effort by the community, École River Heights School and the community centre to get the crosswalk installed, I was pleased to be able to help by funding the entire project out of our ward’s land dedication grant after the city was unable to fund it out of general revenues.

Thanks are due to the City of Winnipeg crews that worked to ensure the crosswalk would be ready for use by the first day of school this fall. I recently heard from the principal at École River Heights School, Susan Anderson, that the students were practising doing walkthroughs at the new crosswalk before school started.

She reminds us that it is important for pedestrians to remember to wait until the cars have stopped after you hit the button and to make sure that drivers see you before crossing the street.
