HUB: Building Community Connections is a school-based project that focuses on Mental Wellness promotion, prevention and early intervention for families and the community in the Wetaskiwin area.

Due to the success of last year’s event, HUB, along with numerous community organizations, have committed to host the 3rd annual Family Games Night Event.

The event is FREE and open to all families in the Wetaskiwin area!  The focus is to connect families to each other as well as community services in an engaging way.  The Wetaskiwin Drill Hall doors will open at 6pm on Monday, April 25th and the games will run until 8pm.  There will be something for everyone; from Jumbo Ker-Plunk, Life Sized Hungry-Hungry-Hippos, Tic-Tac-Toe, Box-Hockey and more.  It is asked that you consider bringing a non-perishable food item as a donation.  Also, please ensure that all children are accompanied by adults and games are played, with caution and at your own risk.

The success of this event is in large part due to the community organizations.  Different community service groups volunteer their time to host various different “Large-Scale” style games.  All of the games were designed with family cooperation and team-work in mind.  The community groups are able to connect with families in a new and exciting way as well as share the programs, services and events they offer.  Families are able to meet the people behind the community organizations while having a free and fun evening out.

We hope to see you at the 3rd annual Family Games Night Event!
