This inflatable obstacle course is fun for all ages. Test your mega abilities with the mega obstacle course. In addition to the mega obstacle course we will also have bouncy castles, and a dunk tank where you can try and dunk one of your teachers / instructors.

In addition we have arranged for Reptilia, which is Canada’s largest fully reptile truck display with over 250 reptiles and amphibians in a naturalistic display. Reptilia will be sending over 2 trained personnel that can answer any questions pertaining to the reptiles that they have. Come out for an afternoon of fun and excitement, and in the evening come dance the night away under our tent at our community Zabava.

Repairs and Replacements 

Our Bell Tower is coming apart because of water damage. We have spent $3,200.00 so far but it will cost approximately $12-15,000.00 to complete the work. Our church and hall amplifying equipment is now obsolete and requires replacement; the cost will be approximately $14,000.00. Because of increased vandalism we have to install security surveillance cameras which will amount to at least $15,000.00. How will we cover these costs? Only with your generosity and the hard-working fundraising efforts of our parish organizations. You might consider making a donation to the church in memory of a loved one.

Ремонт і Заміни.

1) Через затікання води наша дзвіниця розвалюється. До сих пір було витрачено $3,200.00, але це буде коштувати приблизно $12-15,000.00, щоб завершити роботу.

2) Підсилювачі звуку в храмі, церковній залі та в Каплиці УКОО є застарілі і потребують заміни; кошт такої заміни близько $14,000.00.

3) У зв`язку із зростанням актів вандалізму ми повинні встановити камери відеоспостереження, які будуть коштувати не менше $15,000.00.

Як ми покриємо ці витрати? Тільки з вашою щедрістю і працьовитими зусиллями по збору коштів наших парафіяльних організацій. Ви можете скласти пожертву в пам`ять про дорогих для вас людей.
