Hello Riverview Friends and Neighbours!

Just when we thought Spring was here, temperatures drop and Winter is doing it's best to stick around. However, despite the cold weather, things are still heating up with lots going on in the neighbourhood.

As always, please keep sending us your announcements at bugle@riverviewcc.ca and we will continue to trumpet them to the community!

The Bugle will be sent biweekly on Tuesdays at 12PM. The deadline for materials to be included in them will be the preceding  Sunday.

Churchill High Scoreboard Fundraiser
At Churchill High School we're very excited about the plans to put up an electronic scoreboard on the back wall overlooking the field. The scoreboard will be used for soccer games, rugby games, football games and other special events. Money has come in from alumni donations and a January fundraiser but more funds are needed.

Before Spring Break, Sobey's gift cards are being sold. The cards are also good at IGA and now at Safeway. Please consider purchasing some gift cards- the order will go in March 12th and the cards will be ready by March 20th."

More info can be received from Churchill- 204-474-1301 or from Yussef Hawash 204-471-2180 or Gary Wuirch 204- 801-0631
