President’s Message – September 2018

Once again I have no new update on the Calgary Parks filing of the Re-designation Application DL2018- 0062 converting the Community’s existing Reserve (S-SPR) Park land bounded by 10th Street and 32nd Avenue into S-CRI (Special Purpose – City and Regional Infrastructure) classification and then the proposed expansion of the Queen’s Park Cemetery (“QPC”) onto these lands. These Reserve Lands are currently being utilized as an Off-Leash Dog Park. The Application remains on hold. Background on this Application and Community response may be found on our website.

September marks the beginning of the Fall/Winter community events.  First will be the Fall Cleanup allowing disposal of excess materials from summer renovations and garage purges. Following that will be a new event. A fall Family BBQ with a South American cooking theme will highlight a day for residents to gather, party and share summer experiences. A detailed description of planned activities is presented within the newsletter.

This Fall our commercial kitchen status should be approved. All facilities are in place and this will open the Hall for cooking events that were not previously allowed. We encourage any ideas to develop this option for increased Hall usage within the Community.

A list of currently scheduled fall events at the Community Hall are as follows:

Community Cleanup                Sept. 9

Fall Family BBQ                      Sept. 22

Halloween Party                     Oct. 27

Lego Contest                          Nov. tbd

Please check our website for updates and details of all events. Volunteering for setup, takedown or general assistance is an excellent way to make sure such events continue and to meet other members of the community. Please contact for more information on volunteering.

We continue to be urgently in need of the following part-time volunteer positions:

  • Secretary for Board & Annual General Meetings
  • Social Activity Organizers
  • Planning & Development Committee Members
  • Casino Fundraising Organizer

Job descriptions and experienced past directors are available to guide and ease the transition into community service. For more information please contact .

The next meetings of the Board will take place September 10th and October 1st. All residents are welcome to attend and share any concerns, questions or ideas you may have for our community. These meetings take place at the Georgina Thomson City building on 14th Street and Northmount Drive at 6:30 PM.

Remember Participation Builds Your Community.
Daryl Connolly, President CHCA
