Keep up the good work!

Leader Post – February 25, 2020 – Building Ready Readers Launch

Well the time came and went for the Annual Interagency Chili Cook Off hosted by Indigenous Christian Fellowship (ICF). Thank you for hosting this fun event!

The competition was hot and spicy once again and if you want to know who took home the trophy… please watch this wonderful video created by Bird Song Communications. Thanks Don for your great work!

(Hint… it was us!!!)

Thanks to a very generous gift from Conexus Credit Union, Circle Project will soon be moving to the corner of 5th Ave. and Elphinstone St.

Once renovations are completed, the old credit union branch will serve as the organization’s headquarters as well as a community hub in the western part of the North Central community.

“We really appreciate the generosity of Conexus Credit Union,” said Circle Project president Bob Cantin. “We already have a strong presence in the community through our child care centres and satellite programming. This provides us with a wonderful opportunity to build on Circle Project’s 30 years of serving Indigenous people in Regina.”

Ann Perry is the organization’s executive director. “Moving our headquarters into the heart of North Central will certainly benefit people using our programs because we’ll be much closer to their homes. Our staff is thrilled with the options this gives us and the Board is already considering some of the programming options we hope to be able to offer.”

While the old branch building is in very good condition, converting it from a financial institution to a community hub will require extensive renovations. The first priority of the board is fundraising to cover those costs. “We’ve set our sights high,” said Cantin “because we want the best for the people of North Central community.”

Money in the bank: Regina groups get former credit union branches

Circle Project received a little help from our friends at SIIT Construction Career Development Project on Tuesday, January 28 and Wednesday, January 29, 2020, as we began the early demolition work of the former Conexus building on 5th Ave. and Elphinstone. Gifted by Conexus (www.conexus.ca), through a community donation, the former banking site will become the future home of Circle Project’s community programs and services.

 

Through a newly developed partnership between Circle Project and SIIT, individuals who are seeking a career in the trades had an opportunity to gain experience and build skills that will help them progress towards their goal of graduating. Over the next several months, a building that once housed a financial institution will be transformed into a welcoming neighbourhood space where members of the community can access various programs and services right in the heart of the North Central area of Regina.

 

Circle Project’s Council and Staff would like to share our sincere thanks to SIIT, Charles Zielke (Instructor) and students: Tania Alexson, Tara Goodpipe, Carter Alexson, David Desjarlais, Kean Arseneault, Francis Bird, Matthew Strongeagle, Darren Crowe Buffalo, Danny Bunn, Robert Gambler and Duane Myran, for your help in creating our future home!
