More good weather with even warmer weather on its way, we have defi nitely been spoiled again and I am for one not arguing.

I missed a few folks in last month’s letter thanking them for their contributions towards the Fun Money Casino. Thank you goes out to Gina Manian-Juenesse, House of Ohm, Heritage Park and Johnny’s Hobby.

Upcoming Events are listed on the right of our website.

We were also updated on status of our skatepark. It will not be built until 2016-2017 now as the process has taken longer than expected but still in works, at least.

Anyone that can help we are looking for Volunteers for the Stampede Breakfast. As it is our 35th Anniversary our regular volunteers will be stretched thin with all the activities planned. We will also be setting up tables showcasing local crafters and businesses. If you might be interested, contact Sue Read at the centre.

See you all at the Stampede Breakfast!

This is going to be a quick letter as Great News has extended my deadline enough, MIL had a heart attack and I have been tied up.
Would like to thank everyone who contributed to our Fun Casino, it was a great event, especially the companies and individuals who donated for our silent auction. Donors are featured on our website here.

Upcoming events are listed on the right of our web page.

As some of you know we are celebrating our 35 year this year and are looking for old pictures, stories/memories to share with everyone. We have some members that have been here since the community was founded and looking towards them to come forward to share some of the many reasons why this community is so great. Please either email info at – deerruncalgary.ca or drop o to the front desk at community centre. Thank you in advance.

There has also been some interest put forward from residents to renew/redo our signs for our community, what are your thoughts? Any ideas for designs can also be forwarded to myself. We have two of them, one on Canyon Meadows drive and the other on Bow bottom Trail.

We are also being asked to  fill out a letter to ensure our voices are heard in regards to  food mitigation. These can be either downloaded at our website or available at front desk of centre.
Sounds like Deer Ridge and our Paving will commence in July, looks like during stampede, so take extra caution on way back home from Stampede events please.
Going to call it there, think that covers the things I been asked to bring up. Till next month

President’s Message April 2015

Another gorgeous month in the books! Since I came to Calgary in 1977, this was the nicest winter I can remember. On March 4th we had to make the call that the rink was done as the forecast was too warm to try keep it any longer.

I would like to thank all the Rink Ratz that helped this year. Considering the warm weather, we kept a good ice. At one point we Continue reading

We have the best volunteers. Kids Christmas party was excellent.

Volunteers …. THANK YOU! The kids Christmas party was a very very large success that could not have happened with out all the hard work. An extra thanks to all the grade 5 & 6 volunteers who created the games, prepped, practiced the games and ran all the fun stations for the younger kids to enjoy. This is the youngest group I have ever worked with to run an event but ironically it was the smoothest run event I have ever done. We had so many new volunteer faces and I am excited to see so many new people in our community so excited to give back. Thanks also to Lori for her first successful event, learning the ropes and putting up with all of us. Peter Demong, your city representative, has told us a few times that Deer Run has some of the best family events in the city. So why is Deer Run so great!? Well because you care and take the time to volunteer. THANKS VOLUNTEERS!
