As part of its 100th anniversary celebrations, the Association of Regina Realtors (ARR) provided funds to support new enhancements on the North Central Family Centre’s Courtyard.
The courtyard has been expanded to include an area for barbecues and a large stone picnic table, vegetable gardens and flower beds. The family-focused area that wraps around the entire building has been finished with a fence. The project is receiving significant volunteer labour from residents living in the area, and from around the city.
ARR has partnered with the Family Centre on a series of projects over the past six years. Most recently it has provided funds for the Centre’s Youth Empowerment Program, which works to both “beautify” the neighbourhood and make it safer for residents.
As part of its 100th-anniversary celebrations, the association has also:
* created a Centennial Builders Hall that recognizes Realtors who have made outstanding contributions in the development of the city;
* developed a School Citizenship Award, which will be presented annually to one Grade 8 student graduating from each elementary school within the public and Catholic school systems. The award will be an ongoing legacy from Regina Realtors to Regina elementary school students; and
* created and released a booklet about the history of Realtors and the ARR in Regina during the past 100 years.
