Hard working family

In addition we will have plenty of food and drinks as well as a scavenger hunt for the kids.

In addition to your own property, please grab your family and come down to help clean up the community.  We will have gloves, pick-up sticks and garbage bags for you to walk through the community and pick up any debris that may have blown in from outside the neighbourhood.  There are plenty of green spaces in Crestmont that we need to visit and tidy up.

Neighbour Day Canada 150 Party Eh?

Join us on June 17th, 1pm – 3pm Rain or Shine to celebrate Canada and all things neighbourly.  The location is the west end of the stormwater pond by the emergency access road at the bottom of the 500 block of Cresthaven Place.

We invite Crestmont kids ages 13 – 17 to join the first ever Crestmont Kids Council (CKC).  This is a great opportunity to learn new skills, get some great experience for your resume, and give back to your community while providing a voice for the youth in the community.  Come to the AGM and throw your name it for the CKC.
