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 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

Area Development Open House – Hosted by VRCA

The VRCA is hosting an Area Development Open House at the Wedding Chapel just east of Crestmont.

They invite all interested Valley Ridge & Crestmont Residents to attend.  The goal is to present all the latest information on the area development plans around Crestmont & Valley Ridge to help residents understand the impact of these developments and get their feedback and understand their concerns.  The development committees of the Crestmont Community Association and the Valley Ridge Community Association have been hard at work gathering and understanding this information.  There is a lot of development planned over the next 5 – 10 years that you need to be aware of, including some significant changes to roads and access to our communities that may concern you.
