2018 Annual Crestmont Cleanup with the VRCA

THIS SUNDAY JUNE 24th 9:00am – 1:30pm

Hey Crestmont & Valley Ridge, it is that time of year again where we all get together and clean up our communities.  This year, the Valley Ridge Community Association will be helping us put on the event so we welcome all the Valley Ridge residents as well.

This is a great opportunity for all of us to clean up our garages and yards and also help out by cleaning up the green spaces around our communities.  We will have garbage bags, gloves and pick-up sticks available for everyone to use.  Please grab your family and come down to help out.  We live in beautiful communities and it is up to us all to keep them clean and tidy.  For volunteers that help out we have lots of food, snacks and drinks to keep you fueled up, and for the families we have a scavenger hunt with prizes!!!

Just a few important details…

What we can take:

  • Typical garbage
  • Metal
  • Electronics
  • Bicycles
  • Yard waste

What we CANNOT take:

  • Propane and helium tanks
  • Paint, fuels and chemicals
  • Tires
  • Anything dangerous.

If you have any paint or chemicals you can take them to participating fire stations or landfill sites.

The Women In Need organization will be there to take items that are not ready for the garbage as well.

Please join us at the Crestmont Hall and please be careful and respectful to everyone!!!

 

CCA AGM & ADU

 Yes, it is that time of year when your Crestmont Community Association (CCA) has our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Area Development Update (ADU).

Last year was a record turn-out and we are hoping this year will be similar.  Not only are we going to have drinks and snacks generously donated by Servus Credit Union in Bowness, but we are also going to have lots of information and updates on all the developments that are going on in and around Crestmont.

Please join us on Friday March 16th at 7:00pm at the Crestmont Hall.  Also a great time to renew your CCA membership so you are ready for another year of fun CCA events like the Neighbour Day Block Party, Crestmont Clean-up, Crestmont Kids Day and the Kids Halloween Party.

Our website will always have the most up-to-date information so please bookmark: http://CrestmontCommunity.org


Thank you to all those who joined us at our AGM this year.  Below is a link to the slide deck for those who have been asking…
