President's Message

Welcome to Summer! I guess they say - better late than never!! After a hohum actual Summer, we are finally getting a nice stretch of warm summerlike weather as we head into October. As we enjoy the sunshine, Children at Risk has been busy scheduling our even-more popular Saturday Fun Club for the Fall session. We plan to have 5 sessions spread over Saturday mornings from September to December beginning September 30th . We expect all the sessions to fill up quickly, so it’s best to book your sessions early.

Our Summer Day Camp, Camp Kaleidoscope, wrapped up its 7th successful year. We provided camp spots for a record number of children and the feedback from both the children and their parents was very positive. We will continue to have our signature Celebrity-Carved Pumpkin Fundraiser from October 26th to 29th . This is the 22nd year that we have been sacrificing pumpkins for the benefit of Children at Risk and Autism! Once again, we will be operating in four malls across the city. We can always use more volunteers to assist with this event. Please go to our website and contact a Mall Manager if you are able to assist.

The Golf season was good for us this year. I want to thank Kirk Kennedy from TD Bank, Dumouchel Meat & Deli, as well as St. Louis Bar and Grill for organizing 3 separate Charity Golf Tournaments to raise funds for Children at Risk. I also wanted to thank Michel Lalonde and his Crew that make up The Difference Makers-Les Faiseurs de Différence for several events they held in support of our charity – Bowling, Darts and Golf. We would not be able to offer all our services without this great community support. I also want to thank all the Volunteers that helped at Camp and with the other events we have participated in. Let’s hope this summer weather holds on a little longer and I wish the best to all of you for a fulfilling Fall as we close in on the last months of Canada’s 150th Celebration Year!
