Please join us on Friday March 24th at 7:30pm for our Annual General Meeting. This past year was the most active and eventful in the history of the Crestmont Community Association. We held or participated in a record number of events (eight):
Police Safety Chat
CCA & VRCA Community Garage Sale
CCA & HOA Neighbour Day Block Party
CCA & HOA Movie in the Park
Kid’s Halloween Party
Crestmont Christmas Market
In addition there was a significant amount of work accomplished on your behalf by the development committee.
Please consider throwing your hat in and volunteering for us this coming year. All board positions are always open at every year’s AGM. This year we are looking for a Secretary and a brand new position to be filled that we are calling “Event Coordinator”.
If you have ever wanted to give back and add some valuable board experience to your resume, please consider joining us on March 24th. For more information on being a board member, or just volunteering in general, please contact us. We look forward to another wonderful year and you are all a major part of our success.
Development Committee Presentation
At this year’s AGM you won’t want to miss the development committee‘s update. Did you know that there are several major development projects going on around Crestmont that directly impact you as a homeowner? We have updates and information on all of them.
We will also have snacks and plenty of information to share so please join us! Check back here as we get closer to the end of march for any updates.
Crestmont Kids Council
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.
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.
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.
On June 18th, the CCA with MLA Deborah Drever and the City of Calgary are throwing a community Block Party from 12pm – 3pm to celebrate Neighbour Day!
The party will be on the west side of the storm water pond at the end of the 500 block of Cresthaven Place (see map above). There will be Spolumbo’s Sausages and buns, drinks, prizes, games and fun for all ages. Just look for the big bouncy house and all the happy people enjoying the company of their neighbours.
Stay informed and visit our website for all the details and any last-minute changes.
The Crestmont Homeowners Association is now hiring a Park Monitor.
This is a great opportunity to earn some extra money while helping to look after the Crestmont Hall water spray park and tot lot. Please view the job posting and contact the Crestmont Hall for more information.
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.
