GM'S Notes

We've Done A Lot and There's Lots More to Come By Charles Musto

N

ot too long ago we were celebrating winter with our annual hockey tournaments and the Frostbite River Run. The snow was falling, the ice was shining and the RVCC was bustling with cold weather enthusiasts. It was a great season. It wasn’t too cold and it wasn’t too warm. It was perfect for enjoying all the outdoor activities that the season has to offer and the Riverview community certainly took advantage of it. The result was increased participation in everything the club had to offer. Jackrabbits skiing registration went up. Our learn-to-skate program introduced lessons for adults, which was wildly successful. The Frostbite River Run had more runners. The youth hockey tournament and annual 4 on 4 both had more teams and, most importantly, community spirit was up as well. With larger programs and events, an even larger volunteer effort was needed to keep up with the demand. And happily, the volunteer spirit and energy didn't disappoint. Thank you to all those who volunteered their time and/or participated in any one of the many functions that took place at the RVCC. Your continued support is what makes Riverview so amazing. Special thanks go out to the event organizers, the program coaches, the trail grooming crew and the ice making crew. There are too many volunteers to list here, but you all deserve a hefty pat on the back for a job well done. You had the RVCC operating at its best this winter season. And then, just like that, winter is over. Sure it tried to hang on with some lingering cold spurts, but the ice is gone and it’s time to look ahead to what’s coming up at the RVCC. First is the annual Spring Trivia Night. Next is the return of the Fund Drive Blitz. In June, it’s the garage sale, the Spring Carnival and the 2nd edition of the adult softball tournament. All the while, the spring sports are in full swing. It going to be another busy season at the RVCC and we hope you’ll have a blast.

Thanks for the Wonderful Christmas Lights A belated thank you to Inge, at 355 Churchill Drive, for his wonderful display of Christmas lights, which have been on for at least ten hours a day since late November. They're very much appreciated by your neighbour. B.R.Z.

President's Note: A Classic Club By Ryan Rolston When I first had an opportunity to write a president’s message I tried to tell readers what a great experience I had as a volunteer at Riverview Community Centre; I was doing my best to encourage you to volunteer your time with us. Two years have passed since that time. Luckily, some of you did step up. Although I am not sure it was due to my convincing treatise on the virtues of volunteering. But here we are nonetheless. The last two years have been a tremendously successful time at the Club. We have solidified a plan to create a space that the community can be proud of. Work continues on that project as we continue to chase down revenue sources to make that happen. As the renovations come to fruition, the club will become a better venue for a large variety of events which will increase revenue going forward. In the meantime, our staple programs have become more efficient, thus allowing for less stress on volunteers and more income for the club. Breakfast with Santa was a rousing success again this year. This year’s winter Classic was perhaps the most successful ever. The kids tourney hosted a total of 45 games played over 5 days. The Frostbite River Run continues to gain momentum and media attention as it represents a unique way for Winnipeggers to embrace winter. A total of 92 runners participated in this year’s run. The 4 on 4 adult tournament was another success, combining it's traditional recipe for success with a twist as we added a women’s exhibition game for the first time in tournament history. We look for that event to grow as the recently added “Gray Hares” program continues to expand and inspire new adult hockey players. We are looking forward to another great spring carnival. Once again, in order to improve what we offer to our community, we will build on the slow pitch tournament that follows on the Saturday after the carnival. The Club continues to provide an array of kid’s sports programs in a multitude of sports, and has strived to add new programs featuring everything from magic camp to the newly added “Potlucks with a Purpose”. I am proud not only that the Club has achieved the ongoing success that it has, but that there is a unified plan to ensure that the model continues to adapt to the needs of the community while maintaining a consistent vision for the future. However, the gains we have made do come at a price. I acknowledge that the volunteer bond has not been popular with all community members. On that we will have to agree to disagree. What I can say is that there are a number of people in this community who have made my time as president of RVCC

a pleasure. These same people are the ones who have selflessly worked as a team to make the community club a place for everyone, and a place that everyone wants to be. The number of hours spent in that regard by any individual often eclipse the hours we ask for through the yearly volunteer bond in a week. I cannot name everyone: the members of the board, the convenors, the ice makers, the trail makers, the fixers of equipment, the editors, the advertisers, those who apply for grants, those who endure the meetings, the cleaners, those who have big continued on page 4...

ideas and those who implement ideas...to all of you I say thank you. You define the club and thereby define the community of Riverview. As the AGM is next month, this will be my last opportunity to address you in this space as I will be passing the torch on to Dennis Cunningham. Dennis is well qualified to lead this Club to new heights, as he possesses a level headed and thoughtful approach to everything he does. I expect that the Club will continue to flourish under Dennis’s watch and the uber-competence of our incredible general manager, Charles. As I move on to past-president, I will leave you with the same message I started with. I am grateful I have had the opportunity to come to know you. In today’s world, communities need to define themselves, or they will be defined by what happens to their community. What Riverview is as a community is up to all of us. Our children want and need to belong to something beyond the four walls of their own house. The Club allows us to come together and look out for each other. By being a strong community, we teach our children to be good citizens. And so my message hasn't changed: The Club needs you. Please consider volunteering at the club and help shape Riverview into the community that you want it to be.

Canteen/Kitchen Reno Complete By Charles Musto

Our new serving windows.

A

A look at the spacious interior of our new kitchen.

s with most renovations of an old building, it took a bit longer than expected. There were some unanticipated surprises when dismantling the old canteen and some problem solving required to make it all work, but the Riverview Community Centre kitchen renovation is finally complete! The four and a half month project saw the old canteen get a complete overhaul and the result is fantastic. Some of the highlights include a new sink with over head hose, new LED lighting with dimmers, new canteen shutters on the hall side for food/bar service, new slip resistant flooring and a new prep island with under-counter cooler space. As part of the design, the kitchen is now accessible as well. This project, which is phase two of a multi phase plan to completely update the outdated building, was funded by the City of Winnipeg renovation fund, the General Council of

Winnipeg Community Centres Provincial Capital Grant, the City-Wide Accessibility Grant Program, the Province of Manitoba Community Places Program and funds raised at the RVCC through various fundraising events. A big thank you goes to Dave Bynski for continuing to spearhead the multi-phase project as well as all those who worked to help make this a reality. We, of course, also thank the community for your continued support of the RVCC. It is your dedication to this community that inspires us to keep pushing to make the RVCC the best community centre in town. Next task on our reno to do list: outfitting the kitchen with new equipment befitting of the updated facility and then we’re heading back into the hall for the next phase of renovations.

Grands'n'More: Upcoming Events

JackRabbits Skiing Season Comes to a Sunny End

Photo credit: Kaitlan Knowles.

By Dennis Cunningham

A great group of JackRabbits Skiers wind up another season of skiing.

R

are underway. No need to worry, we’ll be out next winter setting trails. On behalf of the Riverview JackRabbits ski club and neighbourhood skiers; I’d like to thank Darrell Durling for doing such a great job on the ski trails this season. Not only did Darrell do the majority of the trail grooming this winter he also designed and fabricated new parts for the trail renovator. Credit for the quality of the trails this season is all Darrell’s. Photo: Dennis Cunningham

iverview Community Center had another great season of JackRabbits Skiing this winter. We had over 30 children, from three years to 12 years old, participating. It was great to see a lot of new skiers out on the trails with our volunteer coaches. We also appreciate the number of parents and grandparents who skied alongside our young skiers. Having families ski together is a big part of what makes our club so special; we focus on building a foundation of cross country skiing skills and encourage families to get outside and enjoy a wonderful winter sport. Many thanks to the coaches this year, Aileen Hunt, Georgette Jhass, Kirby McGowan and Kevin Shand. JackRabbits Skiing can’t happen without them and the volunteers who help prepare our post-ski hot chocolate and snacks. This winter was especially good for cross country skiing. We had plenty of snow that arrived not too late in December. Temperatures most Sundays were mild - we only cancelled two sessions due to extreme cold. And the ski trails stayed in pretty good shape right into early March. Not only that, but fewer people walked on the trails this season. The new trail signs seemed to make a difference. While the recent warm weather brought an end to trail grooming I’m sad to report that the snowmobile suffered a significant breakdown on March 5th. Fortunately, the Riverview Alpine Rescue Crew responded quickly to our distress call and the snowmobile was retrieved from the Parkway and repairs

The Riverview Alpine Rescue Crew – Darrell Durling, Harold Kluger, Andy Kluger and Dennis Cunningham – prepare to tow the recalcitrant snowmobile off the Churchill Parkway.

And they’re free to join! We’re looking for Garden Stewards to help supervise the clubs – so if you have a green thumb, be sure to get in touch through the website. Harvest Dinner – After two great perennial fall pop-up dinners in the Orchard, brought to us from our pals at Diversity Food Service, Chew, and Deer + Almond, we’re already gearing up for next fall’s celebration feast. Be sure to watch out for an opportunity at advance tickets on the website. This year’s Dinner will be on Sunday, September 18th. And, last year we sprouted a new urban agriculture collective – we’d like everyone to meet the South Osborne Permaculture Workers’ Co-op. It is a group of Winnipeg urban farmers growing fresh, local, chemical-free produce in South Osborne. It follows the principles of permaculture: Earth Care, People Care, Fair Share. What happens to the food? They sell most to local restaurants. They give some to food security initiatives – last year it was over 500 lbs. And some goes to volunteers who help them grow and harvest this food. Their aim as ‘ecopreneurs’ is to show that urban farming can be a viable way to make a living and building a more sustainable city-scape, and to provide a model for other communities to borrow from and make their own.

Be sure to sign up for the Permaculture Bulletin on our website to keep up to date on events, workshops and other chances to be part of this grassroots movement towards sustainable, community-based agriculture here in South Osborne. Thanks all, for now, see you in the Commons. For more information visit: www.SouthOsborneCommons.ca

Nature Deficit Disorder: A Panel Discussion to be Held at the Winnipeg News Café By Kim Mandzy Is nature the prescription for a balanced life? And is there a growing disconnect between people and nature in this increasingly virtual world? Join us at 7:00PM on May 4th, 2016 at the Winnipeg News Café for a panel discussion on Nature Deficit Disorder. Our expert panelists will be Chloe Dragon Smith (Canadian Parks Council), Cam Collyer (Evergreen Foundation) and Dr. Barbara McMillan (University of Manitoba). Chloe Dragon Smith is Co-Chair of the Connecting Youth to Nature working group for the Canadian Parks Council. Chloe spoke about the importance of nature in human development and societal health during the 2014 World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. Cam Collyer is Executive Director of Programs at Evergreen Foundation. He oversees a national suite of programs that connect Canadians with nature, including the award-winning National School Ground Greening Program, and other activities that engage Canadians in restoring health to public lands and communities. Dr. Barbara McMillan is Associate Professor of Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning in the Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba. Professor McMillan is currently researching the influence of visits to a pond habitat on Kindergarten children's place awareness and attitude to nature. Our moderator is the well-known journalist, Mary Agnes Welch. Together, Ms. Welch and the panelists will explore current attitudes to Nature, the degree to which youth and adults are becoming disconnected from natural environments, and the steps that individuals, educators, organizations and governments can take to reconnect with Nature. This free event is sponsored by Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) Manitoba. The Winnipeg Free Press News Café is at 237 McDermot Ave in The Exchange. Seating is limited and on a first come first serve basis.

Chimney Swifts

A Huge Thank You to our Plumbing Saviour: Mike Deneka

By Tim Poole

By Ryan Rolston

Z

A few Chimney Swifts near their evening roost.

I

am sitting on the grass opposite the Fort Rouge Leisure Centre minutes before sundown in late May, eyes fixed on the large brick chimney at the rear of the building, with the noise of heavy Osborne traffic as background music. I am waiting to see an endangered bird enter its evening roost. This might not seem like an obvious place to find a threatened species but the bird in question may be present in your place of work, leisure, worship or home. Chimney Swifts are present in Winnipeg from May until August before heading to South America to spend the winter. Since 1968 their population has declined by 95% leading to the Chimney Swift becoming a protected species federally and provincially. This huge decline is linked to the loss of suitable nesting chimneys, as furnaces are modified and chimneys become capped or lined. Prior to the arrival of European-style settlements, Chimney Swifts nested in large dying trees like the cottonwoods along the river. The Chimney Swift has demonstrated a remarkable adaptability, responding to the loss of nesting trees by making use of chimneys. Chimney Swifts show a preference for open, unlined, brick chimneys, a minimum of two and a half bricks across and in close proximity to trees and rivers where they can feed on up to 1000 mosquitoes each day. At this point I should add that no one need panic. These are birds which have lived alongside Manitobans for over 100 years, yet hardly appear to be noticed. Each nesting chimney will contain a single pair who build a small cup-shaped nest out of dead twigs detached from surrounding trees. In some cases, they use a chimney as a roost, and in these circumstances there may be significantly more birds present. In a few weeks from now, if you are close to the Leisure Centre around dusk, listen for light chattering and watch out for a small continued on page 12...

amboni driving seems like it would be a simple task. It is not. This is especially true when the driver opens the garage door to a crowd of fans and anxious players milling around the entrance to the rinks. Add in the time pressures to keep the tournament on schedule and it is amazing that these guys do such a great job. So it happened that on one occasion, prior to the umpteenth flood of the day and towards the end of the 4 on 4 event, that a hose was left attached to the machine as the zamboni was driving out the door. This resulted in significant damage to the plumbing inside the shed. Enter Mike Deneka, Riverview resident and partner at J. Hansen and Son. Mike kindly stepped up and donated his own time and resources to the Club. He got the water running again so we could keep the rink going for the last days of winter (and the Grey Hares program, which Mike also happens to coach!). So cheers to you Mike, and J. Hansen and Son. The Riverview Community Centre appreciates your generosity and workmanship; the work you did was top notch!

black missile with wings hurtling across the evening sky. Smaller than a House Sparrow, these agile birds are like miniature, chattering, jet planes as they search for food and converse with other swifts. A single swift will circle the chimney a few times before plunging vertically headlong into it, possibly followed by other swifts. Other swifts spotted in the evening sky might be roosting in chimneys on Beresford or even over the road in Riverview. The Manitoba Chimney Swift Initiative was started by Nature Manitoba in 2007 with the aim of monitoring and conserving these special birds in Manitoba. We are keen to get in touch with any local residents who would be interested in monitoring swifts. We are also keen to arrange an evening out at a chimney to show people the swifts entering a chimney.

4 on 4 recap

We Have our Traditions but We're Still Evolving By Ryan Rolston

I

t was one for the ages. The weather was perfect for outdoor hockey. The ice was in perfect shape. And the teams....well, we were all one year older than last year. In the end the traditional 4 on 4 adult tournament, the last leg of the Club’s Winter Classic festivities was a rousing success, mixing the successful formula of the past with a few new twists along the way. For two days over February 5th and 6th, 2016, Riverview became the centre of attention of our hockey world. On the over 35 side, the opening matches featured something for the 4 on 4 traditionalists, with several intriguing match ups...Distasio vs. Distasio, Brown vs. Brown, and the return of Roger Burns to the mix. The teams battled late into Friday night and emotions ran high (in a good way) into the wee hours in the beer gardens. A good time was had by all. In the open division, many predicted more same old, same old as the Handsome Devils were poised to make another run to overall victory. The pace was fast and furious, but as the tournament wore on, the Brew Jays emerged as new contenders. On Saturday, rumblings began that there was something new afoot. It started before noon, when a dressing room was cleared. People nervously shifted about as a new group of hockey players entered the fray. Nervousness turned to excited anticipation, as the crowd began to jockey for position around rink one. The inaugural women’s game was perhaps the most video recorded game in 4 on 4 history, with footage being taken from all available camera positions, including an on ice cam. The women did not disappoint! In a hard fought battle that went back and forth no one really knew who won, but it was great to see the Riverview ladies take to the ice merely weeks after forming a hockey program. We hope to see even more women participating next year! As the sun set and the lights came on, it was time for the last remaining teams to sort it all out for 2016. In the over 35 division, (the final battle is becoming a bit of a tradition of its own) The Danglers triumphed over Hi-Steel after losing to them in an epic shoot out in the quarter final match up. In the meantime, the Brew Jays staked to their place in 4 on 4 history by taking out the defending champs Handsome Devils. Once the games were done, people moved to the newly renovated hall for a night of nursing injuries, telling stories of hockey greatness, and coming together as friends again. In another break with tradition, a new band was brought into the mix, the Mulvey Street Maniacs. This group of young men did

not disappoint, playing classic rock tunes that got RVCC patrons on their feet well into the night! Indeed it was one for the ages. It could not have happened without several good community members who stepped up in a big way. Thanks to our referees, Vicco and Virgi and crew. Thanks also to: Aron Brown, Scott Brown (who won the illustrious Golden Skate for his dedication to hockey in the community), Liam Menec and Buzz Hamilton on the zamboni, Marcos Carreiro, Julie Strong, Dave Bynski, and Charles Musto. A special thanks to Mike Deneka (see article on page 11), and of course to all of you who came out and either watched or played. The 4 on 4 weekend is a date we always mark on our calendar; it's a chance to come together as a community by sharing the great game of hockey.

pring is just around the corner and so is Softball season. Registration for the 2016 season ran from March 3rd through to March 18th. After all the great work done this past fall to clean up and prepare the diamonds, we are all anxious to get out and throw some pitches! This year, the Winnipeg South West Youth Softball Association (WSWYSA) has eliminated C ball. All teams will now play B ball. All players interested in playing softball were required to attend an evaluation session. The purpose of the session was to determine a player’s ability and then balance the teams out, so all teams in the league are competitive. Evaluations were run on March 21 for U12 players and March 22 for U14-U18 players. Learn to play and U10 players were not required to attend evaluations. This year, the 15 dollar fee for evaluations was built into registration costs. Teams will be drafted by the end of March, and games will begin in May. The last league game will be played June 23, 2016. Playoffs are set for June 1719, 2016. Provincials are in June or early July depending on the age category. Anyone interested in learning more can check out the Winnipeg South West Youth Softball Association website at http:// www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=wswysa or by contacting the RVCC convener Julie Strong at jestrong@shaw.ca. Batters up!

Grace Bible Church Welcoming a New Family By Stephen Murphy

O

n February 11th in the wee hours of the morning, 1:00 am, over 30 folks from Grace Bible Church came together at Winnipeg airport to welcome a young Syrian couple (in their mid twenties) and their 2 young children (a 1 year old and a 2 1/2 year old) to Winnipeg and a new way of life. After months of discussion, fund raising and seeking volunteer commitments we finally put the faces of real people to the names we had received from Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). With their years of experience, MCC helped us work through the government paper work and supplied us with other advice, including the names of Arabic translators. These translators smoothed the way for the family and us on that cool February morning and have continued to be valuable members of the team as our newcomers settle into a new city and a new culture. We have set them up in a 2 bedroom apartment in the neighborhood and are helping them work through issues of smoking, noise and heat - all those wonderful apartment issues young families need to work through with their neighbors. The caretaker has been supportive and the neighbors understanding. Many volunteers from GBC assist the 5 member committee

Whether you are looking for a new piece of jewellery or to repair a family heirloom... we do it all! Local on-site custom workshop and proud of it!

Unit C - 236 Osborne Street South (204)956-2096 www.rogerwatsonjewellers.com


who are leading this wonderful endeavor of welcoming newcomers coming from horrible conditions. Initially the committee and volunteers put in some long days - cleaning and moving in the furniture, clothing and bedding we had been collecting over the past months. The family has since moved things around making the apartment their home. Volunteers continue to assist them, daily, getting bank accounts, health cards, registering with immigration and giving rides to their orientation to Manitoba classes. It’s been a busy 3 weeks for us and especially for the folk who are learning a whole new way of life and a new language. They are doing quite well, their language skills are growing and the kids seem happy and healthy. With internet being finally setup they are able to communicate with distant family members and that is meaningful for them. Helping them settle into their new environment continues to be a great learning experience for us at GBC as we all learn how to help folks from a different culture and religion find their place in Winnipeg. As one of the leaders at GBC it is great to see everyone working together to help people caught in horrible circumstances as they put together a new life in a new country. It is humbling to share time and money from the blessings and bounty we have. We look forward to ongoing friendships and mutual learning as we build relationships with these newcomers to Winnipeg. We are also aware of the South Osborne group who is entering into a similar adventure and wish you well. Submitted by Stephen Murphy, Co-minister of Pastoral & Spiritual Care at Grace Bible Church, 366 Oakwood Avenue. All are welcome to join us for our 25th Anniversary Spring Choir Concert on Sunday, May 1st @ 7:00 pm.

École Riverview School's New Outdoor Learning Space By Sonya Jantz

École Riverview School students enjoy their new Outdoor Learning Space.

F

or Riverview community members who haven't yet seen or heard, École Riverview School Parent Council is thrilled to announce the completion of an exciting addition to the school - an Outdoor Learning Space! This September marked the final stage of the project, which was the result of many years of collaboration, consultation, grant-writing, and hard work. The idea of an Outdoor Learning Space is gaining popularity in Winnipeg, as well as on an international level. Educators and communities are recognizing the need for a variety of environments to enhance children's learning. Research is showing the value of spending time outdoors in a natural setting. It is beneficial for the whole child - emotional, mental and physical health and wellbeing. Children who spend time in nature can develop and nurture their love for the outdoors, which creates a holistic, engaging learning experience. This, in turn, will hopefully lead to a generation that is inspired to appreciate and protect nature. The four-season, accessible, lowmaintenance Outdoor Learning Space (OLS), features all natural materials, including limestone bricks, oak stumps

placed in the shape of the turtle to reflect Aboriginal teachings, a deck, cistern and troughs for water exploration, a sizable bern, and native species plantings. Still to come are animal silhouettes representing the Aboriginal seven sacred teachings, and more native plants and trees. This unique space came to fruition through the collaboration of École Riverview School Parent Advisory Council (ERSPAC), students, teachers & staff, Winnipeg School Division Aboriginal Consultants, community members and architect Liz Wreford-Taylor of Plain Projects. We are grateful for the financial support of the Government of Manitoba, the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba Hydro, ERSPAC and community members. Special thanks to ISCO who made a significant donation, made possible through community member and ISCO, Vice-President of Canada division, Glen Henderson. It's wonderful to see students gathering in the space; exploring, growing , playing, learning; engaged in their world in a new and meaningful way. Sonya Jantz is a member of the Outdoor Learning Space Committee, ERSPAC, along with Matthew Lawrence, Rhian Christie and Colin Joyal.

Look out Winnipeg Jets; the Gray Hares are in Town! By Julie Strong

BIZ BUZZ The South Osborne Biz Bulletin By Althea Howard, SOBIZ marketing chair

W

2015/2016 Gray Hares

I

n the fall of 2015, the idea of a learnto-play (LTP) hockey program for those “slightly” older than your average jackrabbit was discussed. There was cautious optimism that the idea for this program would attract some interest. To the surprise and delight of everyone, the Gray Hares LTP program attracted a whole lot of interest, and indeed, has been a smashing success! Almost before the ice of the outdoor rink was ready, nearly 30 women of varying age and skill literally hit the ice to begin to learn how to play hockey. Under the excellent and very patient coaching of Ryan, Chris and Mike we have learned the “hockey stance”, how to correctly send and receive passes, the “c-cut”, how to skate backwards (on skates and not our backsides), and proper shooting technique. Since those initial practices when the only way to stop appeared to be the looming boards, and our sticks were more crutch than implement for propelling pucks towards the net, we have slowly but steadily honed our hockey skills. And in February, sporting Rangers jerseys, we made our public

debut at the RVCC 4 on 4 tournament. We may not understand what “off side” means, but word on the street is the Gray Hares were the highlight of the tournament! We even entered a tournament at Waverly Heights CC; and, although we may not be ready for the “bigs”, we definitely showed those other teams how to have a good time! Laughter (often at one another), camaraderie, and the opportunity to get to know one another while having fun and learning how to play hockey has been the best part of the weekly outing. Most weeks, we could hardly wait to get to the outdoor rink! We couldn't have done this without the expert organization skills of our “team manager” Angie; she kept it fun with her roaring laugh and great sense of humor. And, of course, we would still be ankle skaters if not for the expert coaching from Ryan, Mike and Chris; a huge thanks goes out to each one for volunteering their time and expertise and making this program a reality. The Gray Hares will definitely be back next season—so sharpen your skates and come have fun!

hat a relief it is to finally be able to say goodbye to winter as we usher in a new season. South Osborne is once again coming alive with the signs of spring. You’ll probably notice an increase in the amount of people out and about in your neighbourhood enjoying themselves as the days get longer and the sun offers more of its warmth. Do your best to get out and partake in what your neighbourhood has to offer this spring. May will be particularly busy as the community kicks into high gear preparing for the coming summer season. Mother’s Day weekend sees the return of the South Osborne Arts Group’s tour throughout Riverview, where artists from the area open their studio doors and welcome shoppers into their work spaces. The following Saturday the Fort Rouge Leisure Centre hosts their annual Neighbourhood Spring Clean Up followed by a BBQ for their volunteers. They are still looking for helpers, so please be in touch with the FRLC to offer your time. That same day, May 14th, the South Osborne BIZ is going to host its first “Shop South Osborne” day. Participating businesses in the area will be offering special One Day Only deals. Please check our Facebook Page and website often, as we will keep updating both with more information as we get closer to that date. The South Osborne BIZ is anticipating a great spring and summer in the district with lots of fun and exciting events, and we look forward to seeing you on the street supporting our local businesses. As always, thank you for being a part of our wonderful neighbourhood.

Riverview Neighbourhood Garage Sales 2016 Saturday, June 4, 9am-3pm By Steve Lennon

I

t seems that spring has sprung early this year and many Riverview residents have already started preparations for the warmer weather. In the process of spring cleaning, please keep in mind the upcoming Riverview Garage Sales when you come across usable items in working order that you no longer want. This could be an opportunity to create more space and less clutter in your home, as well as a great way to support our popular Riverview Community Centre (RVCC). There are 4 ways you can help: 1. Hold a yard or garage sale at your own home on June 4, and donate 10% of sales to RVCC. We will provide you with a sign and balloons, and do extensive multi-media advertising to bring shoppers to our neighbourhood. 2. Donate saleable goods to RVCC and they will be sold there on June 4 (all proceeds to RVCC). You may drop off sale goods at the community centre to the main floor storage room daily till 9 p.m. Please ask someone there to open the storage room when you arrive. Sorry, but we cannot accept magazines, encyclopedias or textbooks, tvs, tires, child car seats, mattresses, sofas, or broken items, as these items do not sell at a garage sale. 3. Volunteer to assist at the RVCC sale on June 4 and/or during the week prior, for a few hours of pricing, display, setting up or carrying boxes. No experience necessary. We also require the assistance of several people at the end of the sale at 3 p.m. on June 4 to pack up the leftover goods and clean up. 4. Visit your neighbourhood sales on June 4 for fabulous bargains not available at any shopping mall. Last year there were more than a dozen sales in Riverview on the sale day (and the RVCC made over $4,500). See for yourself why Winnipeg is known as "The Garage Sale Capital of Canada!" Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 4, and please plan to participate in this pan-community event. For more info, contact the Garage Sale Coordinator: Kathy Larson (204) 452-8509. Thank you.

Frostbite River Run Another Runaway Success

Photo: Dennis Cunningham

By Dennis Cunningham

92 runners at the start line of the 2016 Frostbite River Run.

T

he Frostbite River Run held on January 26th had 92 runners (our highest participation yet) finish the five mile fun run fundraiser for the Riverview Community Centre. We had great winter running weather - not too cold, not too windy, and not too icy. A little snow had fallen the night before so runners had to work a little harder in the softer trail conditions, but that was the only real challenge they faced - aside from it being a five mile run in the middle of a Winnipeg winter! Because we’ve had such a mild winter this year it was looking like we might not be able to have runners race on the river trail that is set on the ice once the Red River has frozen. At the very last minute the hardworking team at The Forks blazed a trail just for our event and the Frostbite River Run was held on the frozen Red River. For a while we thought we were going to have to change the name to the Frostbite (Along the) River Run. Thirty volunteers helped to set up signage, manage last minute registrations, get post-run snacks and food ready and marshal the course. The run could not

have happened without them. I would also like to extend a very big thank you to the members of the race committee - Rhian Christie, Quinn Fletcher, Susan McMurrich and Tavia Nelson. We are grateful for our fantastic sponsors this year… Ibex Payroll returned as our presenting sponsor; ICEBUG Shoes provided four pairs of Anima3 BUGrip shoes as prizes and loaned us a demo fleet for runners to test out; KnightArcher Insurance sponsored the Fastest Riverview Runner awards; and all around nice guys Smith Paterson & Associates. We also received great media coverage from Virgin 103 Radio and the Sou’wester weekly newspaper. More importantly, all the runners left Riverview Community Centre very happy. Proudly wearing our one-of-a-kind wooden finisher's medals, well-fed (you just can’t beat homemade chili, cookies, fresh fruit, and hot chocolate and coffee after a hard five mile run) and enthusiastic about having just run for RVCC on a very fine January day. We’ve already set the date for next year’s Frostbite River Run - January

29th, 2017 and I hope we’ll finally break the 100 runners mark and have as much or more fun as we did this year. For complete race results, please go to www.frostbiteriverrun.ca.

Riverview Running Group Meet Ups By Dennis Cunningham

A

group of neighbourhood runners is interested in meeting for a weekly group run on Saturday or Sunday mornings. This is a group for all speeds and abilities. Run routes will be through Riverview and along the Churchill Parkway and will range between five and eight kilometers. It’s a great way to meet and socialize with other Riverview runners. The first run will be held in late April. Look for an announcement in the South Osborne Bugle or on the Riverview Community Centre website. For more information call the community centre at 204-4529944 or email Dennis Cunningham at d.e.cunningham@shaw.ca.

2016 Classic Kid’s Hockey Tournament Recap By Shaun Hampton

The younger kids give it all they've got. From January 19-24, 23 youth teams participated in the 2016 Riverview Winter Classic Hockey tournament. The tournament is one of three events that make up the Winter Classic that RVCC hosts every year, the Kid’s Tournament, the Frosbite River Run and the 4 on 4 Tournament. The Classic had three divisions of teams, 5/6, 7/8 and 10A2. The majority of the teams were from the Fort Garry North Hockey Association but we also had participation from South Winnipeg, Transcona, St. James, West St. Paul and Springfield. For the first time in many years, the weather was not a factor; much to the relief of the volunteers, referees and hockey parents/fans. Two years ago we dealt with the coldest winter in over a century. Last year, the temperature spiked to plus 5 on the Friday and the rinks almost melted away before sundown. This year, the weather was almost perfect and what a difference it made to the number of teams and supporters that participated this year. Highlights of the tournament included great hockey played and great sportsmanship exhibited at all levels; a snow shower on Saturday late in the day that provided great pictures of outdoor hockey with white flakes swirling all around; an impromptu snow clearing crew made up of coaches, parents, neighbors and refs to shovel the rink for the next game; “the glove save” by a Riverview goalie;

last minute volunteer ref Ryan Rolston taking two pucks off the leg and still finishing the game; and lots of smiling kids and parents enjoying the outdoors at our old but welcoming facility. Riverview kids were well represented throughout all the divisions and they thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to show off their club to their teammates from outside of the neighborhood. The tournament was a financial success for the centre. Although it is not all about the money; RVCC relies on revenue generating events, such as the Winter Classic, to supplement the funding grants to keep the doors open and the lights on. As is the case with all community events, they would not be possible without the dedication and efforts from the volunteers. There were many volunteers

that helped out in the kitchen, sold 50/50 tickets, wiped down tables and flooded the ice and to all of you, thank you. And we would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the great work and support of Charles, our community centre GM, who was instrumental in the success of the three events and in particular the kid’s tournament. There was also a crew that was at the club for pretty much seven straight days to do all the little things that need to get done on a daily basis and they should be singled out. So a tremendous shout out to Julie Strong, Buzz Hamilton, Scotty Brown, Marcos Carriero and Dave Temmerman (and thanks to your spouses who didn’t see you for a week although some of them thanked us – just kidding). We will do it all over again in 2017.

The older kids in action.
