Annual General Meeting

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.


Finger Pointing at ViewerJust a reminder that tomorrow (April 8th) at 7:00pm at the Crestmont Hall is the Annual General Meeting for your Crestmont Community Association and we need your support.

There are a number of important items to discuss including changes to our bylaws, area development updates and news regarding the Crestmont community and events that we are planning for 2016.

We will also have coffee and snacks to keep your tummy happy.

Please come out and show your support.  Membership sales can be processed at the hall if you don’t already have yours or need to renew.

Grab your neighbours and come on down.

Updated our Membership Application page

Due to a major system upgrade of one of our service providers we lost our membership application functionality back in May 2015. After pursuing a number of options we have come up with an interim solution that should get things back on track for memberships.

If your membership is due, please visit our “Become A Member” page and fill out the form. The online payment feature using PayPal is still the same, however it is now disconnected from the membership form.

If you have any problems or questions, please do not hesitate to Contact Us for assistance.

Your friendly Crestmont Community Association

CCA and VRCA help for flood victims

Do you want to help our Flood Victims?

Crestmont CA and the VRCA are coming together to help our City where we can.  The Crestmont Community Association has secured the Crestmont Community hall from 10am-6pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week.  They intend to use the facility as an item-drop off location, and on Tuesday, as a sandwich-making location.

If you would like to assist with sandwich making on Tuesday morning starting at 9:00am, please show up at the Crestmont Hall and all food is being generously supplied by Sysco Food Services Calgary.

I Want to Help CCA & VRCA Help the YYC Flood Victims

There are 5 main ways our Community Associations can work together to help our City recover from this disaster.

We have been informed that the Calgary Drop-In Center, the YWCA, and several other agencies are in dire need of a few key items:

A)     Razors, Brushes, Combs, Contact Solution

B)      Toothbrushes and toothpaste

C)      Feminine hygiene products

D)     Socks and underwear for boys, girls, men & women

E)      Diapers, Wipes, Baby Formula, Baby Food, Receiving Blankets

F)      Shampoo, lotion, conditioner, deodorant

G)     Hand-sanitizers, cleaning supplies, mops, brooms, garbage bags, cleaning gloves

H)     Boxes, duct tape and packing tape

I)        Plungers, flashlights, batteries

Gifts cards to:

B)      Safeway

D)     Any other Gift cards (food is great…Subway, etc.)


3.     A Food Drive:

A)     The Calgary Drop-In Center and Calgary Food Bank will accept non-perishable food items, so if you have canned or non-perishable goods, please consider donating them.

B)      On Tuesday, assuming there is still a need, a sandwich-making day for the Calgary Drop-In Center will occur at the Crestmont Community Hall.  Please consider bringing bread, sandwich meats, etc. and help us make some sandwiches!


4.     Physical Help:

There will be a number of Bowness seniors and disabled who will have difficulty cleaning out their homes and basements in the coming days.  They may require dump runs, etc.


If you are willing to offer your help in assisting them, we are willing to buddy you up with a fellow VR or Crestmont resident and find Bowness residents who need you!  Please email to add your name to the list, and we will email you when a request is received.


5.     Monetary Donations:

There are many amazing organizations collecting monetary donations.  Here is a list of a few of them.  Please donate directly to these organizations, as neither the VRCA nor the CCA will accept cash donations.

A)     AARCS.  This amazing organization rescues hundreds of dogs and cats each year, and has been particularly active in the flooded First Nations reserve of Siksika.  (They can also use donated pet supplies.)   http://www.aarcs.ca/

B)      Canadian Red Cross.  www.redcross.ca  You can Text 30333 to automatically donate $5 to flood relief.

C)      Volunteer Calgary has a comprehensive list of additional sites accepting donations of money or items.   http://volunteercalgary.wordpress.com/2013/06/22/calgary-flood-donation-drop-off-points-and-wish-lists/


We hope your family and friends are safe, and are thankful that our Communities were relatively unaffected.

Mayor Nenshi says “Get Involved”

In the Calgary Herald,

Mayor Nenshi

Mayor Nenshi wrote a column on Calgary Communities and how people need to be more involved…

Nenshi is urging people to do three things to make their community better, and to mentor three others to do the same.

“They can be big things like joining a community association or small things like having a frontyard barbecue and inviting your neighbours over,” Nenshi said.
