Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

Desired Outcomes

Remember when you were a kid and how it felt to spend days with friends and family at the park. The excitement you felt driving over the bumpy road, knowing the playground was just ahead............... Let's bring that joy to our children.

As a Recreation Committee and Town Council we are striving to meet the following goals:
- To create a social hub where all residents of Hare Bay can connect.
- To restore pride and ownership in our community by bringing everyone together to achieve a common goal thereby developing a more united community empowered to create positive change.
- To provide our youth with opportunities that will foster positive self-growth and leadership skills, encouraging them to take an active role in their community.
- To enhance the lives of our children by creating a safe and sustainable play area that will promote physical and social activity for the children and their families.
- Networking with local businesses and organizations to increase support and participation thus allowing us to develop future projects.

Song Writer's Circle

What a wonderful night!!! Not only was there great original music by Hare Bay's own Bryan Oram, Grace Parsons, Gary Collins and Alonzo Glover but we had an awesome surprise donation. First of all, thank you to Alec and Bryan Oram for coming up with the idea of the Song Writer's Circle and taking it on as a fundraiser. Also to Grace, Gary and Alonzo for taking the time to share your music and talent with us. Thanks to the Music Store in Gander for donating the use of some of the equipment that the musicians used. Of course, a BIG thanks to all those who attended, without you this night would not have been a success. We raised $525.00 at the door in freewill donations. And of course we can't forget the surprise donation. We can't express how grateful we are to Paul and Karen Oram of the Oram Group of Companies who presented the committee with a donation of $7500.00! That has helped so much in getting us closer to our goal. Thank you again to everyone involved in this evening and for making it a very memorable one.
