‘Do Something’ in Millet for an afternoon

The bonus; on July 19, Do Something, a not-for-profit organization, was hosting a toonie carnival at the spray park location.

MUSCLE CAR - Twelve year old Faith Luther displayed her Evolution CupCar (miniature racing car) at the carnival in Millet last weekend.

Saturday was a beautiful, hot summer day. The perfect day to go to a spray park to burn off excessive energy levels of two energetic grandsons. A short drive to Millet provided the solution at a terrific new spray park facility located northeast of the recreation centre adjacent to the soccer field or just west of the Legion.

The bonus; on July 19, Do Something, a not-for-profit organization, was hosting a toonie carnival at the spray park location. Children and their parents were treated to bouncy castles, displays, air brush tattoos, carnival type games, 12 year old Faith Luther displaying her Evolution CupCar (miniature racing car) and all in a relaxed setting.

Angela Pauls explains. “Do Something group and magazine is a not-for-profit created by my 14 year old daughter Celeina. She wanted to create a resource for other kids to share their experiences growing up in today’s fast paced society. Issues like bullying and mental illness are just a couple topics they covered in the last year. Being a part of Do Something magazine the kids also give back to their community by volunteering at social events or hosting events like the toonie carnival this past weekend.”

Angela proudly describes the toonie carnival. “It was a tremendous success at the Millet splash park last Saturday. We are so grateful to the Town of Millet for ensuring the water was on for our event. We saw many happy kids and parents come out and play some games and visit our trade fair at the Legion. Our trade fair raised $132 for the Millet food bank by asking for a $2 donation as people came though the hall. Our next big event is a golf tournament at Pipestone Links golf course on August 8. Anyone can join as a team or a single player. For $75 entry fee participants will be treated to nine holes of golf, golf cart, catered meal, first drink and fun and prizes. We look forward to seeing many golfers out on this beautiful course.”

Do Something is proud of their achievements but is seeking support. “We depend on the local businesses and surrounding communities for support. They can sponsor us or advertise in our magazine. We currently distribute our magazine in Millet, Calmar and Leduc with hopes to expand into more communities in the upcoming seasons.” Do Something also welcomes volunteers to assist with their activities and suggests if young people are looking for a place to Do Something they should check them out.

The Do Something season starts August 22. For more call Angela Pauls at 780-224-2303.
