Whether you took the summer to travel a little bit, or explore your backyard, I hope you all had a chance to soak in some vitamin D, enjoy the sunshine and rejuvenate outside (smoky skies not withstanding). Maybe even a little bit of time out of the soccer field watching our 9 Greenfield teams and the 55 coaches who have made this a fun and exciting soccer season in the neighbourhood. An enormous shout out to Tara Wren who has kept us on track this summer through all the up, downs and loop-de-loops of soccer in the covid world.
The community league is looking ahead to an exciting fall – we have Community League Day on September 18th, from 11am – 3pm. Come join us for a free hot dog bbq, some games and a chance to engage with your neighbours. We will hosting everything outside and continue to encourage all participants to socially distance and be covid-aware.
