Come celebrate the end of summer with the Arcola East Community Association. There will be face painting, emergency vehicles on display, music, free treats, and a puppy pen!
The party kicks off at 1:00 p.m. at the brand-new Horizon Station Park (4701 Buckingham Drive E).
The event is FREE, and everyone is welcome.
We'll also be joined by some incredible food trucks, serving up some of the best locally-made food: Coney Island Poutine and Sweet Treats.
And, to make this event even BETTER, we've got complimentary treats provided by Save On Foods and Shoppers Drug Mart in the Greens and there will be a free raffle of a 7-11 gift basket!
We hope to see you at the Fall Bash!

Updates to City of Regina masking protocols
The Arcola East Community Association is working with the City of Regina to update our masking protocols within the AECC.
At this point, our understanding is that masks are required within the AECC for everyone 3-years-old and older (ages 3-12 if they are reasonably able to).
The AECC walking track is considered a public space and masks are required for those using the facility.
For AECA programs that occur within Public and Catholic school facilities, masks are required at all times.

AECA Preschool Closing for 2020-21 School Year
Dear parents, The AECA Board has made the difficult decision to close the AECA Preschool for the 2020-2021 school year. This decision was not made lightly but is a reflection of the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions the pre-school would have faced when opening and operating in the fall.
We hope to reopen our doors in the fall of 2021. Please watch this website for registration details. Anyone who was already registered for the 2020-2021 year will receive a full refund.
Anyone with questions is invited to please email Preschool Director Chantel De la Sablonniere at email@example.com
