Waterloo Chapter families stay cool

Landscape Ontario members and their families arrived at Bingemans Park in Waterloo, Ont. on July 17 for the Waterloo Chapter Family Fun Day.

Over 70 attendees beat the heat of summer with access to the large wave pool, various water slides and full use of park facilities.

Organizers Trevor Gardner and Blake Sicard of the Waterloo Chapter board agree the event was a great success. “The weather couldn’t have been better and once again the Bingemans facility was the perfect venue for the event,” says Sicard. “Everyone who participated had a great time enjoying the water park, mini golf, beach volleyball, bouncy castle and face painting. We stepped up the event from last year, and next year we hope to have even more people and more activities!”

Gardner commented, “It was a chance for the Waterloo Chapter to say thanks to our members. Our industry tends to demand long hours away from our families and this day was about bringing our families together. The highlight of the day was seeing the smiles on all of the kids’ faces.”

Among the new events this year was a raffle for kids featuring numerous prizes donated by local members and businesses, and a bouncy castle.

Organizers would like to thank Shannon Loney for helping with the event, the staff at Bingemans, Cailey Brammer of Blushworthy for face painting, and the following companies for their support: TS Benefit Solutions, UPI Energy, Vision Signs & Awnings, Home Hardware, Speare Seeds, Kuntz Topsoil Sand & Gravel, Greenhorizons Sod Farms, St. Jacob’s Country Gardens & Landscape Nursery, Bobcat, Creative Landscape Depot.com, Linzel, Unilock and Knell’s Door & Hardware.
