Just a reminder that tonight is the annual Crestmont Community Association Annual General Meeting. Please come and help elect our new board of directors for 2019/2020. There are positions available if you are interested in volunteering.
In addition to some snacks and refreshments, we have an evening planned full of great information for Crestmont community residents. Please join us and learn more about our organization, updates on all the development happening in and around Crestmont, and hear from one of our local kids who is attempting to put together a Crestmont Kids Council.
Parents of children 10 – 16, please invite your children along to the AGM and encourage them to join the Crestmont Kids’ Council.
Cut your tree into smaller pieces to put into your green cart. Make sure the lid can close.
If your green cart is full, tie extra branches (no more than four feet long) together with a natural fibre string or place them in paper yard waste bags. Set tied branches or yard waste bags at least one foot from the side of your green cart.
You can also bring your Christmas tree to a tree drop-off from December 26 to January 31.

How to prepare your tree
• Remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel, string and tree stands.
The Crestmont HOA wants your help! They are organizing a donation drop off to assist NECA AFS with their annual Adopt-a-Family program in Calgary. The hamper must be ready for delivery on December 14th. The HOA will accept items at the Crestmont Hall during office hours up until December 13th. For more information, check out the following poster or visit their website at: www.CrestmontHall.com
It’s finally here!!! The 2018 Market is full of exciting vendors who will be selling their beautiful products, many of them handmade crafts. We think this is going to be the best Crestmont Christmas Market EVER!!!
It all begins this Friday (November 16) at 4:00pm – 9:00pm and then again Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm.
We have quite a bit of change-over so there will be a different collection of vendors for you to check out each day.
Here is a link to a photo album containing a selection of the many things that will be available for you to get all your Christmas Shopping done early this year.
Through the remediation following the emptying of the storm drainage pond at the bottom of Crestmont, an opportunity has arisen to create a community garden. This project would need to be led by a dedicated team of volunteers. For more information about the location and scope of the project, or to volunteer, please email Megan Brayshaw, CCA secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your CCA is holding a snack bar during the Crestmont HOA presented event, Movie in the Park, showing A Wrinkle In Time. Friday, September 7, as soon as it’s dark enough to see the screen. The movie will be set up directly behind the hall, the snack bar will be just outside the daycare doors, under the overhang. Bring your loonies!!
We have been receiving many complaints about unkempt greenspaces in our community. If you have concerns about dead trees, overgrown pathways or boulevards that need attention, we urge you to report them to the City of Calgary through the 311 mobile app, or by simply dialing 311. The more reports we make as a community, the more likely we are to get attention before the snow falls.
Please join your CCA for our annual Kids Day, this Sunday, September 9.
The fun includes:
40′ Inflatable Obstacle Course
Hamburger and Hot Dog BBQ
And much more!
