June 2019 Spruce Grove What’s Happening!
Honour First Nation’s Métis and Inuit
1-4 pm at Shikaoi Park. There will be music, games, rock painting, prizes and more. They are also collecting monetary and food donations for the Parkland Food Bank.
This year, The City of Spruce Grove has made a permanent leap forward with a Rainbow PRIDE Crosswalk!
Rumour has it the day they will be painting is Friday June 21st! This will be on King Street in between City hall and the current RCMP station!! I will be updating our Facebook, Instagram, and website as more details are available!!
On August 10thwe will be holding a Garage Sale at St Andrew’s United Church! This will actually be a huge undertaking and I will need a lot of help with this one.
The Garage Sale part is easy… Please start collecting anything that you would like to donate to the Spruce Grove GSA and have it labeled for sale for the day.
We will be taking in donations for the Parkland Food Bank on that day.
There will also be a clothing drop off for our in-need population. Even though it will be mid-summer, winter will be just around the corner.
We will also be taking in bottles and pop cans in a separate bin so our kids don’t have to run out to acreages or homes and introduce themselves.
And finally, we will have a BBQ set up with hot dogs and drinks for sale!
(Whew) Like I said!!! I need Help!!!
Have a Happy Pride!

I am looking at pricing for t-shirts. I’m currently looking at only having the logo but not with the GSA so our youth are able to wear the shirts anywhere. I am open to suggestions.
We also have new Rainbow Bands for sale for $1 each
There is still a ton of stock of buttons $1 each
We also have Dog tags and Key Chains $15 each
The Bands, buttons, keychains and dog-tags will be available for sale at Pride at the Centre on June 15th!

We absolutely need help!
Some of the ways you can fabulous:
Please: Donate food to our youth GSA meetings or grocery store gift cards, craft items, monetary donations, click on the donate buttonon our website, spend time with us at different events (bottle drives, collect bottles and donate the money to the GSA account online), GSA meetings, parades, resource fairs, etc)

They will also support the GSA Society as a whole by helping us with operational expenses such as liability insurance and equipment. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization; all funds will go to ensuring we can continue to offer services to youth.
We will appreciate and put to good use every donation we receive and, more importantly, your donations will contribute to making youth understand that they are welcome in and supported by our community.
