President’s Message – May 2024

President’s Message – May 2024


On April 12 we held our first Volunteer Appreciation Event since before Covid. It recognized those in the Community who had volunteered their time for social events, facility improvements and our Casino fund raisers. In addition those interested in future volunteer opportunities were invited to join the group for a social evening at a local pub Moose’s Beanery & Bar Room. During May we have joined with Rosemont Community to hold a Spring Cleanup Day on Sunday May 19 at the Cambrian Community Hall. All are invited to bring yard cleanup materials, discarded electronics and tools for disposal and recycling. Please check the website ( or the poster in this newsletter for more details. Beyond that event we have plans to host our third annual Bicycle Day Saturday June 1 which will involve other NW communities and our AGM is scheduled for June 18 with invited guests Lizette Tejada our MLA and Sean Chu Councillor for Ward 4. So save the dates. 

While we have no community wide plans for Calgary Neighbour Day on June 15 this year, we do encourage block parties within the community by providing a $100 fund to defer the costs of organizing and running a block party in your neighbourhood. Simply email for details.

This summer the hall grounds will welcome for the third year the Die Volksmesse car show on July 13.  The Hall also welcomes back for its third year the Between Friends summer camp. They plan to hold an open house for parents at the Hall June 27 for those who might be interested in enrolling their children this summer. See for details.

We still have garden plots available this summer for those interested in growing their own produce. If you are interested please contact us for more information.

There remains some confusion about the use of the park and playground space on 39th Avenue and 10th Street boarding QPC. Despite the unlawful removal of City signage by someone, it is not designated an off leash dog park and should not be so utilized. 

In past newsletter issues we have highlighted our intention to place a community identification sign in the park that is bounded by Cambrian and Northmount Drives. While development in Cambrian Heights started in 1956, there has never to our knowledge been a community identification sign. We are continuing our  process of designing alternatives for consideration. A development permit will ultimately be required. Our community certainly qualified in original construction design as “mid century modern” but like all inner City neighbourhoods is undergoing change with infill development. If you have any signage design thoughts feel free to comment through email to .

The Community continues to encourage resident participation at the Board or event volunteer level. The Treasurer position remains our most urgent need. Accounting or financial expertise will certainly be required. Involvement at a Board level offers an opportunity to help develop the programs, events and residential planning for Cambrian Heights. Help us improve our community resources by volunteering. To discuss any opportunities for participation please contact us at .
