Bourkevale honours its longest serving volunteer

Past-president Gary Kristiansen and Joan Templeton at
Bourkevale's April 13 Annual General Meeting
Joan Templeton began volunteering at Bourkevale in the 1960s, when her son was four and when community centres in Winnipeg were the social hubs of most neighbourhoods. Nearly half a century and literally thousands of volunteer hours later, Joan is finally relinquishing her duties.
The mother of two and grandmother of four began her volunteer career at Bourkevale - when the club was barely 20 years old - as a member of the ladies' auxiliary, which in those days were the chief operators of Winnipeg community centres. Joan took on a number of responsibilities at the club throughout the years, including canteen duties, the social committee and hall rental coordinator, a position she held until this month and one which she performed dutifully and with the kind of loyalty that keeps volunteer-based community clubs alive.
Joan is undoubtedly one of the longest serving volunteers of any community centre in the city, having given some 48 continuous years of her time, energy and passion to the club.  She has not only "given back" to her community, she has helped make it what it is today; a close-knit, family-oriented group of area residents with a strong sense of collegiality.
Joan will be missed, but we know she'll still be around to help out with the odd event. Thank you Joan for your years of unwavering service to the community.

Calling all concert band musicians!

The sweet sounds of concert band music have been filling the air at Bourkevale Community Centre in recent months, as dozens of local musicians get together weekly to share their love of music. The informal gathering is organized by band leader Howard Mar and others who were looking for a rehearsal hall for their group. The drop-in program has been a smashing success with as many as 30 to 40 players - mostly retired folks - turning out every week to join in on the musical fun. The group meets every Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. All are welcome and the drop-in fee is only $1.
