Green and G.O.L.D. project
Ground Breaking Ceremony
We are excited to announce that construction will be starting on our Green and Gold project in just two weeks!
We will be hosting a groundbreaking ceremony and fundraiser in our northwest field on Tuesday, June 18th from 2:30-6:30 p.m., with the official “Golden Shovel” groundbreaking taking place at 5 p.m.
The celebration will also include a number of opportunities for participants to have fun while helping the Glendon Parent Advisory fundraise for the project.
- a barbecue (hot dog, hamburger), ice cream and bake sale starting at 4 p.m.
- a car wash by the Grade 3's and local fire department from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
- dunk tank
- face painting
- pie eating contest
- shot put challenge
- fireman challenge
With construction underway, the Glendon Parent Advisory working hard to fundraise the rest of the money that is needed to complete the project. To date, $840,000 in funding has been secured, including contributions from the Village of Glendon and MD of Bonnyville. An additional $300,000 is still needed.

What is the Green and GOLD project?
The Green and G.O.L.D. (Glendon Outdoor Leisure Development) project will provide Glendon School and local residents with outdoor space that can be used for a variety of organized sports and leisure activities.
The project includes an eight-lane shale track, two baseball diamonds, a soccer/football field, tennis and pickleball courts, basketball and beach volleyball course, and areas for long jump, triple jump, shotput, discus, javelin, high jump and pole vault. These will be located in the field northwest of the school.
The goal is to have a place the entire community can access to stay physically active and have fun. We hope it will become a focal point for the community and provide our youth and families with a space for fun, outdoor leisure activities.
The total cost of the project is $1.1 million.
