Annual Spring Clean Up Will be taking place at Cheema and MacDonald Sports Park on Saturday, May 14th from 9am to 12pm.  Cheema is looking for Parent volunteers as well as the full participation of our athletes. If you have gardening tools such as rakes, gloves, clippers, pruning shears etc. please bring them along.  This is a great opportunity for Cheema to give back to the community by lending a hand at the park.  Wear your Cheema gear and let's make our club even better.......the best place to be this summer! Thanks Joan Smith
