Decking Out the Deck!

Some of you may not know that WSAC has a beautiful big deck out back with a fantastic view but it leaves a little something to be desired in ambiance.   In order to make the deck a more inviting space, we would like your help with our new initiative – Deck Out the Deck!




Our vision is to create comfortable seating areas, have colourful planters filled with flowers, artwork, and a safe, clean area to socialize or hold smaller events.  Here are some different ways that you can help us create this space:

  • SHARE YOUR IDEAS – Do you have some great ideas of what you would like to see on the deck. Send us an email
  • VOLUNTEER – Planning, cleaning, creating, planting, maintaining – we need your help in any or all of these areas!
    • Help with the planning,
    • Assisting with some cleaning of the deck area, chairs etc.
    • Creating artwork,
    • Painting pots, planting, and caring for the plants.


  • DONATIONS – Do you have any garden items that you are no longer using that you would like to donate? We are looking for things such as:
    • outdoor tables and side tables,
    • umbrellas and umbrella stands,
    • benches,
    • bird feeders,
    • pots, extra bedding plants,
    • outdoor cushions,
    • artwork or decorations etc.
  • We ask that you contact us first to let us know if you have something to donate in case we have already received enough of certain items.
  • You can also purchase and donate plants or hanging baskets through our Growing Smiles fundraiser.  Click here for more information!
