Spring is finally here, and it’s time to get our parks ready to enjoy for the summer! The Ellerslie Community League Board is making a call for volunteers to help us clean up our two great park sites. Please join your board members and other neighborhood volunteers from 10:00 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 13, at either Charlesworth Park or Ellerslie Crossing Park to help clean up our green spaces. Garbage bags and gloves will be provided by Capital City Clean Up.

Free coffee and donuts will be available for volunteers, and the we will be having a pizza lunch when we finish as well. Extra hands make the job that much easier. So if you have a couple of hours to spare, this is a great opportunity to meet your neighbours, enjoy free coffee, donuts and pizza, as well as help beautify the green spaces we all enjoy. Help take care of YOUR community and we hope to see you there!

The Ellerslie Community League 2014 Annual General Meeting is taking place at Grace Point Church on Saturday, November 15, and everyone who lives in our community is welcome and encouraged to join us.

We’re starting with a free dinner at 5:30 p.m., followed by the AGM at 6:30 p.m. While the AGM is going on, we’ll be showing a supervised movie for the kids in another room. Once the AGM business has been taken care of, we’re hosting a community forum, where residents can share their ideas on how to make our community an even better place to live.

You don’t need a league membership to attend; however, you do need one to have a vote, and we need at least ten voting members there who aren’t part of the board in order to hold the meeting. If you’d like to purchase a membership ($25 for the whole family for the year), you can contact Christine Lim, buy one at the meeting, or buy one online.

Please contact Denie Goulet or post a comment here if you have any questions. This event is a great opportunity to get involved with your community and meet your neighbours, and we hope to see lots of people there!

Update: Due to a lack of volunteers, this fundraiser has been cancelled.

We’re hoping to have a snowbank rink in Ellerslie Crossing Park this winter, but we need the community’s help to make it happen! We need about $6,000 to build and maintain the rink for the winter, so we’re having a bottle drive on Saturday, October 18, starting at 10:00 a.m. to help raise funds. More details will come soon, but right now we’re looking for volunteers to help out. We need people to pick up the bottles (a driver with a truck and a helper or two per vehicle) and people to sort/count at the bottle depot. Please contact Jenn Parsonage if you’re able to help out.

If you want to see a rink in our community this winter, PLEASE volunteer and spread the word! If we don’t get support from the community for this (both in volunteer hours and in donations), we won’t be able to provide this awesome benefit. Thanks for your support!
