COVID-19 and the ECL

June 22nd, 2020 | Posted by Communications Director in News - (0 Comments)

COVID-19 has changed the way that we interact with our community. As activity slowly returns to normal in Alberta, the Ellerslie Community League is planning our next steps for community activities. At this time we are supporting our community online through activities and information on our Facebook page.

We want to ensure our community’s safety is our #1 priority. We will be continually reassessing whether we can begin reinstating small community activities like Movie Nights as the summer progresses. As it stands right now, we do not have a time frame for these activities to resume.

Watch our website or our Facebook page for updates on when activities will begin!

Stay Safe! – Your ECL Board

Make your voice heard! What are YOU looking for in your community?

Before the Ellerslie Community League can commit to a project (such as a skating rink or community hall), we need to have input from our community members on what is important to them. So please take a few minutes and fill out this survey, and help us find out what is most wanted in our neighbourhood!

The survey can be found here!

Thank You!
