THE PLAYGROUND IS COMING

Posted on Friday July 20, 2018 at 10:49AM


Community Fit Ltd (CFL) is a non-profit, volunteer group dedicated to raising funds for active based projects and events for Thorsby and County residence. Funding that is raised through our association goes to fitness equipment, funding upgrades at the Thorsby Recreation Centre for example the installation of the FOB system, funding fitness related events like the Mudslayer and funding an outdoor trail system, Thorsby Network of Trails. We host fun family events and fitness opportunities for the community. With our projects we hope enhance current programs, provide equipment for the community weight center; to encourage active living in the community; to enhance free play for the local kids through our Community Play project.

CFL has been slowly raising funds for the past three years. Initially this project was to enhance the current space. However, our current play area was torn down July 12, 2017 due to the equipment being unsafe. There is no playground equipment!   We have completed the designated shaded picnic area, but the rush was on to get our community a playground. It's coming!!! It has been ordered and will be arriving in August.
