It 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:
Items NOT accepted:
We 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.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Community Safety Chat with Constable Price on May 10th. This was a very informative session and we learned a few key points:
Hey Crestmont, did you know we have our very own Police Constable assigned to our neighbourhood ?
On May 10th, 7pm at the Crestmont Hall Constable Damian Price will be in Crestmont presenting an informative session on how to keep our community safe.
Crestmont is a quiet neighbourhood, however if you view the Calgary Police Service’s Crimes Web Mapping Application there have been 21 incidents of crime in our area in the last 6 months. Keep in mind that those are only the crimes that have been reported. Crestmont homeowners should learn how to effectively report crime and learn to be a good neighbor so we can all help support the residents of this wonderful community.
I hope you can make the time to come down to the Crestmont Hall on May 10th to meet your neighbors, Constable Price and members of the Crestmont Community Association board. We look forward to meeting you.
On Friday April 8th, the Crestmont Community Association had our Annual General Meeting at the Crestmont Hall. Attendance was excellent and we graciously thank everyone for taking the time out of their day to come down and support us.
Also in attendance was a representative from MLA Deborah Drever’s office and Councillor Ward Sutherland. We thank them both for their continued support.
This year the AGM was packed with information and updates on area developments and planned community events for this year.
For the first time, all but one of the existing board members threw their hats back in to continue for the next term. The new board for 2016/2017 is:
Al Del Degan, who will remain in the President role, and the following directors who will likely resume in their current roles (to be officially determined at the next board meeting on April 21st at the hall).
Chris Wolfe, Vice President
Paul Christensen, Treasurer
Stacy Cousins, Secretary
Crystal McGrath, Director at Large
There are still 5 director positions open on the CCA board so if you want to gain some rewarding volunteer experience and give back to your community, please attend any of our future board meetings and you can find out what is involved and how you can best help out. We meet on the third Thursday of every month at 8:10pm at the hall.
There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer even if you do not want a board of directors position. We have a huge list of ideas for events in our community and we will only be able to pull them all off with some help from you.
Please enter your email address to sign up for our newsletter to keep informed of the upcoming events as well as volunteer opportunities.
We look forward to serving the Crestmont community.
Al Del Degan
Just a reminder that tomorrow (April 8th) at 7:00pm at the Crestmont Hall is the Annual General Meeting for your Crestmont Community Association and we need your support.
