Our favorite summer program is being held over this fall, in Ellerslie Crossing Park. The programming will be focused on nature, and runs Monday and Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.
We are very pleased and proud that the City of Edmonton has chosen our park to be one of their sites for this great fall programming.

Just a quick housekeeping note, the monthly movie nights are being postponed through the summer months as the great weather and full schedules through the summer are leading to low attendance. We will be resuming Movie Nights in the fall, starting with Community League Day on September 19th.

Despite inclement weather threatening our efforts, approximately 26 volunteers helped clean our two park sites. The playgrounds and surrounding areas were cleared of garbage, cigarette butts, and any visible dangerous items to ensure a pleasing and safe experience in our parks. It was really nice to see parents setting great examples for their children as 14 of our volunteers were children. We put all our helping hands to good use, to help make a difference. Coffee and hot chocolate, and Tim Bits were enjoyed, as well as Panago Pizza when we were done.

Many thanks to the following Volunteers:

Denie Goulet, Community League President
Amanda Goulet, Community League Treasurer
Gerry Pasternak, Community League Civics Director
Christine Lim, Community League Membership Director
Gemma Dunn, Community League Fundrasing Director
Corey Teeple, Community League Communications Director

The Goulet Children
The Lim Children

Approximately 17 bags of trash were removed from the sites, and a number of items cleared to make our parks safer for our over 7,000 residents. Your contributions are very much appreciated.

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!
