Announcing the Friends of Sorauren Park

The Wabash Building Society has a new name: Friends of Sorauren Park.

Incorporated as an all-volunteer community non-profit in 2006, the Wabash Building Society was founded initially to advocate for the forthcoming Wabash Community Centre at the park. Over the years, we have supported Sorauren Park generally, with projects including:

“As the mission expanded, the name Wabash Building Society was increasingly met with puzzlement,” says WBS volunteer chair Joël Campbell. “So, we’ve changed.”

The Friends of Sorauren Park carries on the tradition of community involvement in the park started more than 25 years ago, before the park was opened. In the early years, that involvement was coordinated by the Roncesvalles-Macdonell Residents’ Association. The WBS, and now the Friends, grew out of an RMRA sub-committee. There are now 10 active directors on the board, working with a large base of volunteers and sponsors.

You are invited to get involved. Volunteering is fun, rewarding, and a great way to meet your neighbours. We meet the first Thursday of every month at the Sorauren Park Fieldhouse, 7 p.m.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our newsletter for the latest park news and volunteer opportunities.

The Wabash Building Society name will carry on as the legal name of the non-profit corporation. But going forward, as an operating name, the Friends of Sorauren Park will carry the torch for our special little park.
