August President's Message

Hi Crossroads,

I hope you have all had a fantastic and restful summer! Now, I hope we can get you to start thinking about how we can make our community better. I would like to again encourage you to join us in September at our AGM. There are MANY other ways beyond joining your community association as well. Join your school parent council, join the leadership in Scouting, coach your kid’s soccer team, hockey team or other sports team. Cut your neighbours’ grass, shovel their walks or pick up garbage on your walk. Call in issues to 311 or police. Volunteer at Brown Bagging it for Calgary Kids, Cornerstone Youth Centre or at the Summer Festival. There are PLENTY of ways to get involved. Dip your toe in the water and help us all have a better, safer community.

I hope your elementary-aged youth get a chance to attend 12 Community Safety Initiative’s 2-week basketball camp at the court at Vista Heights School. Players from St. Mary’s University join us to teach the finer points of hoops. We can always use some high school-aged basketball volunteers to learn from the pros! We hope to see you all at the Summer Festival in the same area, on Saturday August 25th. Drum Fun and a revamped Pub Night are all back in early September and Movie Night returns in October. Yoga and Fit2Age continue. 

Come on out to our first ever Lawn Chair Theatre in September on the 22nd from 4-6pm at the hall. See detail further on from our hard-working City Neighbourhood Partnership Coordinator Pam McHugh. Come on out to our Community registration night for programs at the hall September 5th. Join sports, Scouts and more… Join us in our biggest fundraising effort of the year in volunteering for our Casino August 31st and September 1st. Details for all of this are later in the newsletter.

Did you know volunteering can pay?? We offer credits for our community programs if you volunteer to do bingos and our casino which both help us to offer our programs at a reduced rate. Reach out and find out more. I’m looking forward to a great year for Crossroads in 2018-2019.

Join us!
