Pam MacDonald

I live in the Hawthorne neighbourhood with my husband Ted, and two boys, William and Andrew. We have been members at Banook for five years and look forward to many more summers to come. I love being active outdoors – we spend loads of time as a family at the beaches and lake through the summer, and take every opportunity to be outside through the winter. I love skate, classic and downhill skiing, and skating at the oval and on the lakes. I am an active volunteer at Hawthorne School, and am treasurer of the Home and School Association. I am also a member of the Halifax Nordic Ski Club and coach their Jackrabbits ski program. I am excited to be Banook’s swim chair and look forward to developing the Banook Swim Team and aquatics programs!

#FLASHBACK Friday!

Back on August 30th, 2016 I announced an $86,000 investment in four of our amazing paddling clubs through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. I'm happy to see this funding making a difference at the clubs in our community!

Senobe Aquatic Club:
$40,000 non-repayable contribution to Senobe Aquatic Club supported the installation of new windows and siding; replacing the facility’s roof; installing ventilation in the boat bays; and exterior painting on the boat bays and shed.

Banook Canoe Club:
$20,500 non-repayable contribution to Banook Canoe Club—one of the oldest paddling clubs in Canada—is helping preserve the organization’s historic clubhouse. The upgrades included: repairing and re-shingling the roof; replacing a retaining wall; fixing water damage; improving the wheelchair access ramp; and conducting exterior painting to the building.

Mic Mac AAC (real club account):
$20,250 non-repayable contribution allowed the Mic Mac Amateur Aquatic Club to purchase and install an energy efficient heating system. The new system is expected to lower the Club’s overall operating costs.

Abenaki Aquatic Club:
$5,250 non-repayable contribution allowed the Abenaki Aquatic Club to make upgrades to its clubhouse including: replacing a beach wall; and making repairs to the grounds, walkways, and basketball bleachers.
