Unfortunately we have had to cancel our annual Victoria Day Fireworks for 2020 due to the pandemic and the park being closed till the end of June. We are now in the planning stages for the 2021 Victoria Day Fireworks and family events.
We have also had to cancel our totball and tball league for 2020. This year would have been our third year and we had 98 children registered. If you are interested in information about registration for 2021 please send an email to greaterashtonca@gmail to be added to the distribution list
A decision about the status of the GACA mixed lob ball league for 2020 has not been made yet,
But we are still holding the following events:
ELECTRONIC AND CLOTHING RECYLING EVENT
Our bin has arrived at the Ashton Park to receive your donations of unwanted electronics and clothing. The bin will be on site till early December. We look forward to this being a great year not only for the environment but also for the GACA. This is one of our biggest fundraisers to raise money to hold the best Victoria Day Fireworks in the valley.
We have ran this event for the past 5 years and during that time we have reverted 23.95 tonnes.
Clean up the Neighbourhood. This was the first year we did this event and we had over 26 children participate and 5 adults there was over 20 garbage bags of clothes and three recyling bins.
