When coffee night was in person we used to meet every two weeks. When covid hit we came online to do coffee night and then as some of us felt a bit isolated, bumped it up to every week.

As restrictions start relaxing, and more and more of us are double vaccinated, there will come a day when we head back out and support our local coffee places. For now, we’ll be moving back to a two week schedule for coffee night, staying online for just a little bit longer, in preparation for our transition to in person again.

Tomorrow’s highway cleanup is no longer required, as we finished today. We’ll be doing it again in September, so watch for the event signup near the end of August. Thanks to all the volunteers!

Due to covid restrictions, teams of people from one house are preferable, although people are free to work alone.  As outdoor events are currently limited to 5 people, we will break into two groups, starting at opposite ends of our section.

We meet at 9am and go for a few hours, please make sure you dress for the weather and we would advise AGAINST sandals or shorts/capri pants as the grass gets pretty long and dirty. Please also be advised that Alberta Transport requires volunteers for the highway cleanup to be at least 9 years of age.

We meet both Saturday and Sunday, all the details can be found on the events

We managed to get all of our section done this weekend!  A huge thank you to everyone that came out, having about 8 people per day was the perfect amount for us to finish up, so now we no longer have to head out next weekend.

Big thanks to Rob, Tamara, Peter, Lou, Jason, Ingrid, Ashley, Mark, Tom, Martin, Logan and Karen!

We’ll be planning for another cleanup after the snow melts and it dries up, usually near the end of May.

Usually, we do highway cleanup twice a year for a full weekend, once in the spring and then again in the fall.  Unfortunately, due to covid restrictions the spring event did not happen.    We have no idea how grizzly it will be out there, so are going to run two weekends this fall to get it all done.   If we finish the first weekend, we’ll cancel the second, so please check the event prior to showing up for the second weekend.

Here is the first event, please sign up if you can help!  See you there!

Our annual general meeting usually takes place just before the summer each year, and obviously with events being shut down due to covid this did not happen at the usual scheduled time.    We had hoped that small events indoors would be up and running by this stage in order to hold our meeting, however libraries are still not booking out their meeting rooms.

We thought we’d gauge interest in filling the board positions (all are available this time around) in order to make some decisions about how the group moves forward, so are asking those of you interested in sitting for a position to let us know.   For now, if you had a valid membership last year you would be considered a member for the purposes of this AGM.  If you would like to run but didn’t have a membership last year you can use our online method to get yourself up to date.
