The community of Newton is a quiet area just north of Highlands that features tree-lined streets, quaint houses and friendly faces enjoying a walk around the block. Approximately 3,000 people call the area home, and most have put down roots. According to city statistics, more than 65 per cent of Newton's residents have lived in the neighbourhood for more than five years. Newton Community League is committed to achieving a healthy, safe and friendly environment by providing information, programs, support and resources to enhance the sense of community for Newton Residents.
At this time, Newton will not be having a 2015 soccer program. If you are interested in coordinating the soccer program, the league and the community children would welcome your participation! Please contact Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our skating rink is now open. We are looking for volunteers to pick up short shifts. Duties include supervision of skaters and running of concession. If you can help, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com
Meet Rienk Mulder - I moved into Newton Community along with my parents and 5 siblings in 1962. We first lived on a little farm on 54 St and 123 Ave. My parents then bought a house on 55 St. and 120 Ave., which my son now owns. I met my wife at the Newton Park and we married in 1975. We purchased a house shortly after we married which has a wonderful view of the Newton Skating Rink. Our two children attended St Leo’s School and our son, his wife and our three grandchildren live right down the block from us. Our grandchildren are the fourth generation on both my wife’s side and my side that lived in the Newton Community.
Growing up in the neighbourhood I spent my summer’s playing baseball in the Newton School Ground and my winters skating in the Newton Rink. Now that I am retired I enjoy spending time over at the skating rink, clearing and flooding for the children and future hockey players of our neighbourhood.
|Rienk (Rink) Mulder
Rienk is Newton’s rink manager. For the past few years he has faithfully flooded and cleared the ice for the many people who have enjoyed skating here at Newton.. It is volunteers like Rienk that make a difference in a community. The next time you see him, be sure to thank Rienk for giving back to the neighbourhood that he and his family call home.
Spring is upon us which also means Newton Community League's Annual General Meeting is as well!
As temperatures begin to rise - your NCL Board of Directors is getting ready to hand over the reigns to a new board! This means we need people to fill these seats! I'm not going to lie - it's a lot of work, but the reward far outweighs all else!
Everything that happens in and around Newton is done by your neighbours and friends - it is done by those you pass on the street, see in the store, and wave to as your drive by. It is done, for the most part, with little to no remuneration. It is done because we love our community and all it offers!
If you think Newton doesn't offer you something have a look at the long list of volunteer run initiatives.
