Updated our Membership Application page

Due to a major system upgrade of one of our service providers we lost our membership application functionality back in May 2015. After pursuing a number of options we have come up with an interim solution that should get things back on track for memberships.

If your membership is due, please visit our “Become A Member” page and fill out the form. The online payment feature using PayPal is still the same, however it is now disconnected from the membership form.

If you have any problems or questions, please do not hesitate to Contact Us for assistance.

Thanks,
Your friendly Crestmont Community Association

Pet licensing brings pets home and helps to fund some shelter programs

Pet licensing brings pets home and helps to fund some shelter programs

 Pet licenses are more than just a tag around pet’s neck, they are their ticket home if they are lost. Fees collected from licenses help many of the other animals who come into the shelter. Every week Animal Services takes in an average of 70 stray pets and 17 of those are returned to their owners the same day through the drive home program. In fact because of pet licensing, Calgary has the highest return to owner and lowest euthanization rates in North America. Beyond reuniting pets with their owners, licences help to fund emergency vet care for stray dogs and cats, no cost spay/neuter programs for eligible Calgarians and so much more. Visit Calgary.ca to learn more about how licensing can benefit you and your fur family.

“Seal Your Community Support” – CCA Fundraiser

Tupperware PhotoCrestmont Cares – Show your Support

The Crestmont Community Association (CCA) cares about keeping our community informed.  In efforts to increase our communications with residents of Crestmont, we are fundraising for a communication board.  Our wish is to raise enough money for a permanent electronic sign in front of the hall that will allow us to communicate more effectively with the community.  This will also save us hundreds of dollars a year in rental expenses that we currently pay to rent these signs.

The CCA has had the amazing opportunity to partner with one of the leading direct sellers on the market, Tupperware Brands, to kick off our first community fundraiser!  This is a fantastic opportunity for you to do all your holiday shopping from the comforts of your home, and support your community at the same time.

Please help us achieve our goal in the next two weeks by buying some great Tupperware product and spreading the word about our fundraiser.

“Seal Your Community Support” – CCA Fundraiser

You can help in three ways:

  1. Order some fantastic new Tupperware for yourself or to give away with the upcoming holiday season approaching!  Remember – 40% of the sale will go directly back into the CCA! To place your order simply go to: http://order.tupperware.ca/pls/htprod_wwwcan/!twx$eparty_ctl.p_guest_welcome?pv_eparty=e12dd064022b93fb0434fda447f46913  In the pink bar along the top you will see “Welcome To The Crestmont Community Association Fundraiser” – click on “Shop This Fundraiser” and start shopping to support your community!  Please note*  Product Categories are listed along the left hand side of the page, and some categories have multiple pages listed at the bottom – don’t miss out on anything!!!
  2. Send an email to everyone that you know, spreading the word that we are holding a Tupperware Fundraiser.  Please invite everyone that you know so we can make this Fundraiser as big of a success as we can!  SHARE this link on your Facebook account with all your friends.
  3. Book a Tupperware Party ($20 will go to the CCA once you date & hold your party!)  Please contact whipituptupperware@outlook.com or call 403.466.5257 to book your party.

WHY WE CHOSE TO PARTNER WITH TUPPERWARE…

  • Unlike other fundraising opportunities, Tupperware gives back 40% off all sales to the organization!!!  This is a great opportunity for everyone to win!
  • Tupperware products are found in nearly every home across North America & around the world.  Tupperware offers products that are non-perishable, long lasting & eco-friendly that go the distance towards protecting the environment, so you can actually feel extra-special about supporting this fundraiser.  These durable, sustainable products also come with a LIFETIME WARRENTY – which means that if your Tupperware product chips, peels, cracks or breaks, Tupperware will replace it FREE as long as you own the product!
  • There is something for every budget – prices start at only $8.00.
  • Tupperware Fundraisers offer a large selection of products with items for everyone.  Choose from 50 plus Tupperware products, including classic storage solutions, to on-the-go items, microwavable & dishwasher safe containers, serving, baking & cooking tools & so much more.
  • By holding an TupperConnect Online Fundraiser with Tupperware, this enables us to raise funds from family & friends, both far & near!  Upon purchase, items will be shipped directly, via Fedex, anywhere in Canada with a postal code!  Your order will arrive in as little as two weeks from placing your order.

“WIN” BY SUPPORTING YOUR COMMUNITY FUNDRAISER…

We appreciate your support and want to “thank you” for jumping on board to support this community fundraiser.  This is what you can win:

  • Every $200 plus order (all orders placed on one order – pre tax) will be entered into a drawing for one $50 Tupperware Prize, donated by Whip It Up Tupperware Sales.

 *The winner will be contacted 1 week following the close of this fundraiser.  Fundraiser closes on Nov 27th.

 If you have any questions regarding the Tupperware order or want to learn more about Fundraising for your organization, please contact Whip It Up Tupperware Sales at 403.466.5257 or whipituptupperware@outlook.com .

On behalf of the CCA, thank you in advance for “sealing” your community support by purchasing Tupperware products!

Sincerely,

Your CCA & Whip It Up Tupperware Sales

 

What to Expect when you’re Expecting…

new-housingHello Crestmont community, we are expecting more neighbors as the Crestmont West development plans continues along its way.  What does this mean for you?

Nothing right now, it will be likely 2018 before we see the first houses in West Crestmont, although much work can occur before this time.   Completion of this development is expected 3-5 years after commencement.

On October 18th during Qualico’s town hall meeting we learned the planned community garden will not be ready until 2018 so we are investigating other community garden opportunities.  Also, in the plan are tobogganing hills in the park area.  Do you and your family want toboggan hills?  The plans use to have water fountains in this large park area.  Please let us know your feedback, share with us your comments on Facebook or send us an email.  It’s very important we hear from you because we have the opportunity to influence these plans to get what we want.

There are currently 473 homes in Crestmont as per the 2014 census.  The new development will add 517 new homes.  Even with Crestmont’s future planned expansion, we will continue to be a unique community holding one of the smallest community populations. Crestmont community’s current population is only around 1,379.

Stay tuned for more. The Calgary West ASP will anticipate going to Calgary Planning Commission in November, likely the 20th and a Council public hearing in January 2015.

Want to find out more about development? Join us on November 20th at 8pm at the hall, for our next CCA meeting. Your vote counts!

Sincerely,
Amy Hen
CCA President

Snowfall Tree Debris Management

Fallen Tree Branches from Heavy SnowSnowfall Tree Debris Management

Recent snowfall has caused damage to many trees throughout the city, leaving tree debris on both private property and City property.

All three City landfills – Spyhill, Shepard and East Calgary – are accepting tree debris from the snowstorm at no charge until further notice. Customers arriving at the scalehouse should identify that they are bringing tree debris and must not mix the debris with any other waste material for it to be accepted free of charge.

Alternatively, tree debris can be cut into 4-foot pieces in length and stacked beside waste and recycling carts to be picked up with regular collection or at a later date, depending on our resources.

To help keep regular garbage and recycling pickup on schedule, and to avoid damaging City equipment, we ask that Calgarians do not put tree debris in their blue, black or green carts.

Calgarians may notice a disruption with City services such as power outages in City facilities and delayed garbage and recycling collection due to tree debris blocking back lanes. We thank Calgarians for their patience as City crews work to manage all effects of the recent snowfall.

Please be safe as many drooping tree limbs still pose a safety threat. We continue to work on a debris management plan and will communicate with Calgarians later today how we will be proceeding. At this time, we are still focused on emergency response to fallen tree debris on roads and impacts from power outages throughout the city. Safety is our current priority.
