Lionel Courchene Park Legacy Endowment Fund

The purpose of this fund is to support enhancements to Lionel Courchene Park in perpetuity for the enjoyment of the community, including those involved in the game of baseball.

The history of Lionel Courchene Park dates back to the 1970s and includes involvement from the Courchene family and many community volunteers, the City of Surrey and the Surrey Canadian Baseball Association (SCBA) which was established on March 2, 1976. The purpose of the Lionel Courchene Park Legacy Endowment Fund is to serve the needs of a growing community and to support minor baseball play in Guildford/Fleetwood communities.

 

To further this legacy, this fundraising campaign has been created in memory of the late Caroline Schellekens, who served as an executive member of SCBA, and who passed away in April 2022. Funds raised will support future park enhancements that will be directed by the Foundation with input from the City of Surrey, Mr. Craig Joncas (husband of the late Caroline Schellekens), and the SCBA.
