Spot Sonia! Your Sherwood Park REALTOR®

Summer fun in Sherwood Park!

Tue, 27 Jun by Sonia Tarabay

It’s official! Summer is here! If you’re like me, you love to make the best of our fabulous summers because, as we all no, they always seem to be much too short. Here’s a top 10 list of great things to do in Sherwood Park!

10. Play sportball, try your hand at gardening or crafts and get in touch with your artistic side in Art Zone by Gallery@501 during the Summer Play Day at Broadmoor Lake Park. The Everybody Gets to Play event runs from 11 am to 2 pm.

9. Get wet and cool off at the RE/MAX Spray Park and Playground, located at Broadmoor Lake Park. The environmentally friendly park features a wide variety of new play structures and is a great way for all children up to 15 years old to spend a hot summer fay.

8. To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, Strathcona County is participating in the Canada 150 Mosaic Mural Project. Four hundred individual tiles will be painted and will form an eight foot by eight foot mural. Those interested in participating must register by calling 780-467-2211.

7. Get fit with a Summer Class Pass. Strathcona Country Recreation offers unlimited access to 25 of its most popular classes for just $99. Visit www.strathcona.ca/summerpass for more details.

6. Explore the Beaver Hills Biosphere! This unique park at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre has more than 12 km of trails and a whole whack of excellent activities to get you outdoors. Those include geocaching, disc golf and much more!

5. Need to work on your swing? Or just need to sharpen up your short game? Broadmoor Golf Course has courses for both boys and girls as well as men and women.

4. There’s nothing better than a dip in an outdoor pool on a summer afternoon and what better setting to learn to swim! If you need to polish up your front crawl, check out the Hasting Lake Swim@Camp, which takes place at the Hastings Lake Lutheran Bible Camp. For more information, call 780-464-2112.

3. Dust off the bike or your running shoes and explore the vast network of multi-purpose trails that stretch all over Sherwood Park. Bring your pup, because they are all welcome on the trails too!

2. If your dog needs a little more room to exercise and explore, consider taking them to the Deerhound Dog Off-leash site. To find the park, drive three kilometres south of Wye Road on Highway 21, turn west onto Township Road 522 and watch for off-leash area signs.

1. Celebrate Canada’s 150th Canada Day at Broadmoor Lake Park. It’s a huge year and the celebrations will be incredible! There’s way too much to list here, but I’ll give you a little sample of the highlights – laser tag, human foosball, axe throwing, wagon and pony rides, science rockets, archery, petting zoo and, of course, fireworks!

What else are you excited about doing in Sherwood Park this summer? Feel free to comment and let me know!

Sonia Supports Saffron

This past Saturday marked the second annual Strathcona County SAFFRON (Sexual Assault) Centre Walk and Fun Run, which I was very honoured to sponsor and participate in along with my family. This Sherwood Park event was a chance for our community to come together to raise money for an excellent local organization, with all of the funding going directly to support victims of sexual assault, abuse and sexual violence, as well as their families.

This is an important cause in our community and one that I’m very proud to support. We were very thankful for the amazing weather we had on Saturday and for all the great people in our community who came out and walked and ran. They would have come out rain or shine, but it was nice to have a beautiful spring day!

Thank you to the SAFFRON Centre for hosting this event and for all the work they do for Strathcona County residents. Let’s hope that together we can help stop this horrific thing from happening to anyone!

Warm regards,

Sonia

Another amazing Great Canadian Trade Fair!

Wed, 12 Apr by Sonia Tarabay

If you ever need a reminder of how special Strathcona County or how inspirational its people, all you need to do is attend the Great Canadian Trade Fair and Sale, which was held last weekend at Millennium Place.

Walking through the Trade Fair, I got a sense of all of the incredible things that people are doing in Strathcona County. There are so many passionate people in this community doing what they love and all of that positive energy is invigorating.

This was my sixth year as an exhibitor at the Trade Fair and it’s a date I always circle on my calendar. One of the best things about the event is seeing all of the familiar faces, from clients who I have bought or sold houses for, to all the members of this tight-knit community that I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know over the years.

It’s also an excellent opportunity to meet knew people and I had a blast making new friends over the weekend, and talking about why they call me Sherwood Park’s Real Estate Tiger. I also enjoyed connecting with my fellow Chamber of Commerce members and with the members of Strathcona County Council.

I’d like to extend a huge thank you to the Chamber and all of its volunteers who once again did a fabulous job organizing the show. Also, thank you to the great restaurants, which brought their tastiest dishes to Taste of Strathcona and to the more than 300 exhibitors. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event!

Warmest regards,

Kicking off Christmas Season at Festival of Trees

Mon, 28 Nov by Sonia Tarabay

 

sherwood-park-festival-of-trees-2016

I was very excited to get involved in one of the great Christmas traditions in Sherwood Park – the annual Festival of Trees hosted by Festival Place. It’s a celebration that raises money to support The Cultural Arts Foundation. It helps children and youth which is a wonderful cause. We have so many talented people in Sherwood Park and area and they need our support!

For the first time, I donated a tree and of course I put my own brand on it. With the help of my daughter Alexa, who purchased the tree and all of the ornaments, we designed the “Leopard Love Tree” and it turned out great as it was pretty east to spot! It truly was an incredible way to kick off the Christmas Season.

Sherwood Park is our home and it has also been an amazing community to do business in. I’m very fortunate for all the supportive I’ve received from people in Strathcona County, so I love giving back whenever I can. Thanks to all of the others who donated trees and wreaths and to everyone who attended this event and bid on the beautiful creations!

Warmest regards,

Sonia

Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice

Wed, 09 Nov by Sonia Tarabay

remembrance day

It’s almost easy to take the freedom we have for granted in Canada today. We have freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the freedom of free thought. Everyone over the age of 18 has the right to vote and elect people who represent us. Thankfully, many Canadians have never lived in a world where it has been any other way.

It’s important to recognize those freedoms and it’s just as important to recognize the brave men and women who fought to help protect them. Since 1914, nearly 115,000 people died while representing Canada in the two World Wars, in various peacekeeping operations and in Korea and Afghanistan. Many of these people were very young, with much of their lives still ahead of them. On November 11, Remembrance Day, we have the opportunity to pay our respects to all of those who have served for the greater good.

In Sherwood Park, schools throughout the community will host ceremonies and observe a moment of silence to remember the fallen. There will also be the annual Remembrance Day service at Millennium Place on Nov. 11 starting at 10:30 a.m.

It warms my heart to see so many people in Sherwood Park who are proudly displaying their poppies in front of their heart. If we all remember the sacrifices that have been made, we can stop these tragic wars from happening again in the future.

Warmest regards,

Sonia

The Great Canadian Trade Fair and Sale in Sherwood Park

Mon, 11 Apr by Sonia Tarabay

Tradeshow 2016

What an amazing weekend at The Great Canadian Trade Fair & Sale in Sherwood Park! Every year I look forward to participating in this joyful event. This was my 6th year in a row as an exhibitor! It’s an absolute pleasure to support local businesses at the trade fair and since I love community involvement, it’s always extra fun to meet old and new friends!

I especially love seeing my clients visit me year after year. We have a good chat, a few laughs of course, and they always walk away with a “Sonia Surprise”. This year I was giving away some pretty cool magic mugs and tiger teddies for the kids. Everyone loved them!

One of the highlights of this trade show’s event was being interviewed by Shine 105.9 FM. It was great to be able to talk about the Sherwood Park community, Sherwood Park real estate, and of course, my love for the Stollery Hospital.

Thanks to all of my clients and new friends for their support and a very special thank you to our local chamber of commerce for organizing this awesome event. It’s never been more fun working and playing in Sherwood Park!

Warmest regards,

Sonia

What is The Great Canadian Trade Fair & Sale?

Every year, local Sherwood Park and Strathcona County businesses gather together in one place to promote our services and products. It’s been running annually for over 30 years, and it’s a fantastic event for connecting with the Sherwood Park community. All kinds of businesses and professional services show at the Trade Fair, from home renovation stores and contractors to gift shops and financial professionals.

The Trade Fair is a great family event, too! In addition to the booths for local Sherwood Park businesses, there will be fun activities for the kids. Last year’s event included a Kid Fun Zone, and a treasure chest with over 1,000 prizes for children: I’m certain this year’s event will be equally fun for all ages!
