COMMUNITY NEWS: 

The Great Salmon Send Off Needs You! The Great Salmon Send Off committee is looking for a few more community members/parents to join the planning committee.  This important annual community event helps keep Stoney Creek replenished with salmon smolts which, in years to come, will return to the creek to spawn and carry on the important salmon life cycle. 

Planning has just started for the 2024 event.  If you would like to see this event continue on throughout the next few years, the planning committee desperately needs your help.  Please email info@scec.ca if you are interested.  The time commitment is minimal but your contribution to the long term well-being of the creek is invaluable.  Thank you in advance for your consideration! 

Purdy’s Easter Fundraiser is Live! Click here to access the order page. Deadline to order is February 28, 2024 so that orders can go home before the Spring Break/Easter school closure.
