June already!!! Less then a month of school left for all our kids! Our children are having fun and playing outside more, so another reminder that it's 30 km/hr around all play grounds. I have noticed some fast drivers when out in our community; please slow down! Always be on the look out for children in our streets and alleyways.
Lets keep our kids safe!
What are your summer plans?! If you are needing some extra activities for the little ones don't forget the City of Edmonton has wonderful programming! Call 311 or visit the City of Edmonton website for more info.
Have a happy and safe June!

We'll be hosting this event every month until September!
We hope to see you there!
