CHESTERMERE HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC PARK UPGRADE PROJECT
Our committee is working hard to raise funds for the Chestermere Athletic Park Upgrade Project. Two weeks ago we did a presentation to the City of Chestermere. On Tuesday, March 5th we are doing a presentation to the County of Rocky View. Our Facebook page is now open and has a great deal of information on it. We are having an Information Session at CHS on Wednesday, March 20th at 6:30. Come out and see the plans for this exciting project. We will be giving details on all aspects of the project.
There will be an all years reunion for all Chestermere alumni football players. We have a 45 year history of football and have never done a reunion. All former players, coaches, managers, trainers, and parents are invited to attend. The date for the event is Saturday, May 4th. Location and more details will be provided later. Please send me an e-mail if you would like to receive information on this event.
Chestermere had been known for strong basketball teams for many years. We have also never done a reunion. This event will be open to all female and male alumni. Chestermere has had teams for almost 60 years. I will confirm the date in the next few weeks, but we are looking at Saturday, May 11.
Shooting Stars will once again be running a spring basketball program for girls. Details will be announced shortly. This program is for girls in Grades 5-12. If you would like to be put in the email address book, to receive information, please email me.
