West Rouge Sports & Recreation Association

President’s Report Fall 2012

By Martin Bugden, President

The West Rouge Sports and Recreation Association, now in our 52nd year, was founded in February 1960. Today’s objectives have not changed much over the years.

Our aim is to organize and promote social, sporting, cultural and recreational programs and activities in order to encourage a spirit of community within the West Rouge area and to ensure an equal opportunity exists for all residents to participate in all programs and events.

The following are events to be held at the West Rouge Community Centre in the near future:

Mark your calendar for all of the above events which help to make West Rouge one of the best places to live.

While many of our events are free to those who attend there are some, such as the Youth Dances and Yuk Yuks night, for which we charge. Funds raised go to support Family Day, Winterfest, Scholarships, Earth Day, High School Achievement awards, Children’s Halloween and Easter Party, sponsorships of local hockey, soccer, baseball and lacrosse leagues and many other events.

We would like to thank the many staff at the City of Toronto’s Recreation and Parks Department for all their support in all we do and to the many sponsors that make Family Day an event unmatched elsewhere in Toronto.
