Party on the Pond Sees Exceptional Turnout Once Again

by Jocelyn Ottenbreit

This past weekend was a buzz with one of the most popular fundraising events taking place for the new recreation facility being built in Martensville.

The third-annual Party on the Pond event took place March 11th and 12th which included a Premier 3-on-3 Pond Hockey Tournament with 43 teams participating, a Friday evening comedy show with comedian Jody Peters and a Saturday night cabaret featuring the band Seven Mile Sun.

The event which took place at the North Ridge Community Centre, held the hockey tournament and beer gardens on adjacent ponds.

All proceeds raised from this event are going towards the Martensville Community Recreation Project (MCRP) to help with their fundraising campaign for the new multi-purpose recreation facility.

The event would not have been possible without the work of the Committee of 25 people, starting with prepping the ice for over one month prior to the event, securing sponsorship, scraping the ice surface in between games, reffing, keeping score of games, and keeping the fires burning outside, to name a few. DJ Kusch kept the party going outside all weekend. Many volunteers helped out by selling tickets, 50/50’s, working the bar, and more.
