Secord Community League is so grateful to have received a $65,000 donation from the John Tackaberry Memorial Fund of the Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation. In 2017 we started the process of building a new community playground in our neighbourhood, beside our new school David Thomas King. New schools are no longer built with playgrounds, it’s up to the community to fundraise and work with the city to build one. With $500,000 in grant funding we were still $207,000 short of our goal. The support we received from the John Tackaberry Memorial Fund has enabled us to reach our fundraising goal and proceed to construction phase this summer! The incredible support we’ve received has not only enabled us to build the playground, but also a bike track for the children of Secord and David Thomas King School to enjoy for decades to come. Secord Community League would like to thank everyone involved with the John Tackaberry Memorial Golf Tournament and the Charitable Foundation for choosing to make a difference in our community.
