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.

Ball Caps for Sale

Bruce and Elizabeth Collins have generously donated some ball caps that their son David collected while in hospital battling cancer. David was a very active young boy before he got sick and he loved sports and spent much of his time playing hockey at the rink. Unfortunately David lost his battle and passed away about 21 years ago. His parents gave the Recreation Committee these hats knowing that David would be so proud to help out with this great cause. So far in one day we raised over $390 dollars and we have at least 150 hats left to sell. If anyone is interested in purchasing a cap please contact Sue Collins at todd-sue@hotmail.com or any other committee member. Thanks very much for your support!
