Another Successful Polar Party 2017

Bring those shiny new skates or borrow a pair from the Skate Shack and celebrate winter with your friends.  The skate shack has a huge selection of sizes for anyone interested.  We will have a fire pit to keep us warm, hot chocolate bar and cookies for energy and skating fun and games.  This is a free event sponsored by the Community Association; one of the many ways in which our casino money goes back into the community.   So bring your neighbours, good humour and warm coats and enjoy a day of winter fun.

POLAR PARTY SUCCESS!

Saturday’s Polar Party was another record success with 80 – 100 attendees of all ages. This is the third year of this winter outdoor festival supported by community volunteers and City of Calgary employees. While experiencing very warm weather and chinook winds the ice rinks held up for skaters. Games kept the young participants busy in the snow as did the hot chocolate bar, cakes and cookies. Free skates were provided and children chose to play hockey on the ice or street hockey in the parking lot. Thanks for all who attended this community event.

Community 60th Anniversary Celebration

On September 16 the Cambrian Heights Community celebrated the 60th anniversary of the community’s first houses being built in 1956. The celebration featured games for the children, a picnic buffet lunch, free period photo’s, a historic community display and both period music and artifacts. A highlight was the attendance of our Ward 7 Councilwomen Druh Farrell who presented the Community with a 60th Anniversary commemorative plaque. A surprise visit by Mayor Naheed Nenshi was well received by all as he made his way through the crowd initiating conversations and allowing many pictures to be taken. Both guests made a short speech which was much appreciated by all especially the many original residents of the community who attended the event.

Many thanks go out to our Social Director Jodi Dixon and her volunteer committee for this very successful and well-attended event.

Another Successful Stampede Breakfast 2016

Once again the Stampede Breakfast was a grade success feeding over 300 with great food and community friendship. Despite the threatening weather and a torn up Northmount Drive we enjoyed generally quiet skies and the warmth of the Community Hall while the volunteers cooked up great pancakes and sausages out doors.

Once again I would like to thank all the volunteers and those that joined in for another successful community event. 

Next up our 60th Anniversary Picnic September 17th.
