Thank You for Attending AGM
Thank you everyone for attending our Annual General Meeting that was held on Nov. 17! We had a great turnout both in-person and virtually!
Thank You Casino Volunteers
One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time! The experience was different this year and we greatly appreciate the support. Riverbend Community Association relies heavily on these funds to ensure ongoing operation of the shared space at the community centre as well as support to various community programs and events.
2020-21 Hockey Rink season
As we are preparing for the Hockey Rink Makeover project to completely replace and upgrade the skating rinks by the community centre, rink volunteers will not be flooding the rinks and maintaining ice this season. We are looking forward to kicking off the makeover project!

Welcome Little Free Library
We are very excited about our brand new Riverbend Community Little Free Library located by the main entrance of the community centre.
The library has been designed, handcrafted and donated by the Maciejewski family. It was installed on Oct 31 and the shelves got filled within a few days. HUGE THANKS to everyone who donated awesome adult books!
We are in constant need of more children's books as they are the most popular with young readers of Riverbend!
There are several Little Free Libraries in Riverbend- see details Have you visited them ?
