September 29, 2016: Free Basketball and Soccer;
RAH kids’ programming returns.

By Lorrie Marlow, Recreation Association of Hintonburg.

The Recreation Association of Hintonburg (RAH) is pleased to announce its free basketball and soccer programs will be running again this winter thanks to the Hintonburg Fun Run. The popular Hintonburg Fun Run donated over $750 to RAH for its programming needs.

RAH will be running the Open Gym basketball program for youth starting at 14 years-old on Friday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. at Connaught School starting October 14, 2016.

The soccer program will be held at Devonshire School on Tuesday evenings for ages 6 to 8 at 6:00 p.m., and for ages 9 to 12 at 7:00 p.m. Thank you, Lisa Georges and the participants of the Hintonburg Fun Run for supporting RAH programming.

RAH and Plant Pool Recreation Association (PPRA) held their annual Dessert Party on September 17 2016 with music by the Parkdale United Church Orchestra. The ticket sales and Silent Auction raised about $1710 for the Swim Pass and Woman Alive programs. Swim passes are provided to the Forward Avenue Crisis Shelter and Somerset West Community Health Center for use by children and adults. At this event, our local MPP Yasir Naqvi, announced the funding received by PPRA for its playground program. This funding helps PPRA hire students to operate a playground program in Plouffe Park. Hintonburg’s own, Ab Adamu, is the playground supervisor who coordinates the program with children.

RAH and PPRA have come together to meet recreational needs of residents. If you are interested in volunteering with these groups message their Facebook pages.
