Neighbour Day Canada 150 Party Eh?

Last year we had our first Neighbour Day block party and it was a huge success.

THIS year we are going BIGGER!  In celebration of Canada’s 150 Birthday we are going to have a party that William Lyon Mackenzie King could be proud of.

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.

Thanks to generous donations from the following organizations, there will be live music, food, beverages, a bouncy house, along with fun & games galore.

You may wish to bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on.

Thank you to:

PLEASE R.S.V.P.

We need you to RSVP so we can be sure to have enough food and drinks for everyone.  If you do not RSVP there is a chance that you may not be able to partake in the food & drink.

Annual Crestmont Cleanup June 26

Hard working familyIt is that time of year again on June 26th, 2016 (9am – 1:30pm) when all of Crestmont gets out to clean up their yards, garages, and basements and gathers up the debris and garbage to bring down to the Crestmont Hall where the City of Calgary has packer trucks waiting.  GEEP will also have bins for electronics and the Crestmont Community Association will have food, coffee and snacks.

Make it a fun day for your family!  We will have pick-up sticks, vests, gloves and garbage bags at the hall so you can take your family out into the neighbourhood green spaces to pick up garbage and debris that blow in from the wind.

This is a FREE event for everyone, although we encourage you to get or renew your Crestmont Community Association Membership if you have not already done so.

Items accepted include:

  • furniture decor items
  • yard waste & grass clippings
  • materials from minor repair work
  • general garbage
  • mattresses (although we STRONGLY encourage you to recycle your used mattress instead!)
  • household electronics
  • metal
  • tires
  • barbecues

Items NOT accepted:

  • chemical products or containers
  • paint
  • antifreeze
  • oil or oil filters
  • car batteries
  • propane tanks

Recycle IconWe will also set up a free table for items that are still in good condition that you no longer wish to keep. Someone else in the community may be able to use it. It’s all about recycling items in a safe manner.

This is a family friendly event and a good way to teach our children the value of keeping all our spaces clean and to feel like they can contribute in a positive way by giving back to their community.

Please check back here for any updates / changes prior to June 26th.

CCA & VRCA Multi-Community Garage Sale on May 28th

Stuff for SaleHave you ever noticed that your junk is “stuff” and everyone else’s stuff is “junk”?  Well get the stuff that you no longer need, and instead of making it into actual junk, sell it to someone else so it can be their stuff instead!

On May 28th, the Crestmont Community Association is joining forces with the Valley Ridge Community Association to put together a MASSIVE multi-community garage sale.  The garage sale will run from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm and will be advertised in the Calgary Herald, the Valley Breeze and the Crestmont Courier.

Maps of both communities with all participating homes will be made available prior to the garage sale at the Crestmont Hall as well as the Valley Ridge gas station, pharmacy, liquor store, Van Gogh’s, and Kijiji. To have your home added to the list, and make some money on your spring cleaning, please visit www.crestmontcommunity.org/events-calendar/garage-sale-application/. You can add your address and a brief description of what you are selling.

This event is FREE to Crestmont Community Association members and $5 for non-members. Memberships are always available through our website at www.crestmontcommunity.org/become-a-member/

“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…
