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.
