President’s Message – April 2023

The Ceilidh Dance held on Saturday March 18 at the Community Hall was a sold out event with upwards of 90 participants thanks to the organizational and marketing efforts of our Social Committee. An evening of Irish dance and music was enjoyed by everyone who attended. Other social events are planned as we enter the Spring months including an afternoon Tea Party and for a second year a Bicycle Repair clinic with games and refreshments. Should you wish to get involved with organizing new events please contact the Social Committee at

As reported last month Cambrian Heights partnered with Rosemont Community for an annual Spring Cleanup event application. Unfortunately we were denied by the City of Calgary who cited budget cuts and our communities lack of reported issues as mitigating factors in denying our application this year. By now the website ( should have a listing of successful community cleanup operations.  Any neighbouring community holding such an event is obligated to provide this service to all Calgarians free of charge.

Cambrian Heights continues to operate a community garden. Should you be interested in an opportunity to grow your own vegetables this summer please contact us at for more information.

We have been awarded Casino dates of April 17 and 18 this year. Casino proceeds allow the Association to remain financially viable and provide services and facilities for the community. We need volunteers for those two nights to work a shift at the Pure Casino Calgary. No experience is required. Come and enjoy a hot meal, meet fellow residents and support your community. Transportation and daycare expenses are available for reimbursement if required. Please contact us at for more information.

With the summer months approaching we again remind residents that with any issues involving planning and development within the community they should contact the City File Manager directly on applications where you feel such development will have a detrimental impact to their property or privacy. They may also file comments using the City website ( and Development Map Link. This is the most effective way of letting the City know your objections and hopefully help mitigate such issues.

Also as the snow melts and spring temperatures arrive we hope to be providing more information with an Open House dealing with future enhancements to the Off Leash Park on 32nd Avenue and 10th Street. This development will require volunteers and tax deductible donations to complete. The City Parks department has been very supportive of such development and will be adding more trees to the area this year. We need community involvement to bring this project to active development. Please consult our website ( for updates to this process.

We currently are in need of a community resident to replace our Treasurer who is retiring this year. This is a critical position for the Community Association but an opportunity to join an experienced team and help develop the programs and events for Cambrian Heights over the year. To discuss this volunteer opportunity contact us at .
