Easter Thanks Deer Run Teen Leadership Club and Volunteers

Thanks to all the Grade 8 Leadership club and the Jr. Grade 5-6 team for all the planning and fundraising. This year’s teaching point for our club was fundraising. They all didn’t want to do it but by the time 1 hour rolled by, 3 girls raised $1200+ cash from our awesome community donors. “Here – let me do this one” was the last few comments I remember hearing. A total of $1900 in donated gifts and services was raised – PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS (click the pic for bigger view – a local red logo’ed bank was not allowed to post online)

135 kids and just as many parents came for an Egg Hunt, carnival games, crafts and concession. A few key adults Jana, Mike B, Cherise and Sue pulled this together. MANY THANKS. What a great community.

President’s Message March 2017

Looks like our ice on skating rink is done for the year with the nice weather we received. I would like to thank the rink ratz for all their hard work this year and Brian S. and Donovan for coming up with the new Zamboni attachment for our tractor. Any of you that came out to the skate party would have noticed a smoother ice than we have previously had.We are having the Fun Money Casino to March 25. We are still looking for additional items for door prizes and silent auction items, if you or your company can spare items please contact Sue at the centre. Continue reading

Presidents Message – August 2016

What a week of weather we had. Hopefully everyone stayed dry, not too much ooding and you got home alright.

I’d like to start by apologizing to the people of Fort Ma- cleod and Fort McMurray. In my previous letter I referred to the res in Fort Macleod, it was actually supposed to read the res in Fort McMurray.

Also, be aware that there is an individual that is going around our neighbourhood going into backyards. He has slashed a swimming pool in which a picture was taken of him in the act. Just be aware that we do have people coming through our neighbourhood and keep an eye out and do call the police if you witnessed such activity.

We also have witnessed people going on this new craze called Pokémon GO. Not sure if many are aware of this but the community centre is a Pokémon stop. Interest- ing. All I can say is stay safe if playing. For a chuckle for the people that like wine you might want to look up Chardonnay Go, it’s a YouTube video by a comedian.

Everyone enjoy the rest your summer and see you at the Community Cleanup in September!

Presidents Message – July 2016

Been a nice couple months since my last letter. We man- aged to get most of our garden in here and at our farm. Having help from co-workers and family sure helps this happen easier.

I was driving to an appointment today from our store in Forest Lawn/ Dover and pulled behind a trailer from Greater Forest Lawn Senior Citizens Society. It was for their Snow and Mow program and thought it was a great idea for our community. I would like to hear from you about your thoughts. I know many of us already help neighbours as we can, but if you know someone who could use a hand or would be willing to help those in need. If we have a good response on both sides we could use some folks to step up and help coordinate as well. Let me know your thoughts!

The Calgary Police Service offers the following tips to help protect your property:

Home and garage break-in prevention

  • • Keep your doors locked, even when you’re home. Ensure your garage doors and windows are also closed and locked.
  • • Install exterior motion lights to brighten dark areas around doors or windows, to make them easily seen by neighbours and passersby.
  • • Lock all garage doors, including the one between an attached garage and the house.
  • • Always close and lock any windows that could be used to gain access to your home while you’re away or sleeping, even on hot summer nights.
  • • Store important or irreplaceable documents and items away from your home, such is in a safety deposit box.
  • • If you see homes with open doors, front doors with keys left in the locks or a neighbour’s car with the trunk left open, give them a quick call to let them know.
  • • Consider installing home and vehicle alarm systems and vehicle anti-theft devices.

President’s Message July 2015

Schools out for this year, Record temperatures and another successful stampede breakfast. Special thanks to Mike Isakeit for once again spearheading this event, Etienne Bley for keeping the games for the kids flowing and the many volunteers who helped out. Was nice to see Peter Demong and Richard Gotfried out to help us celebrate our 35 th Anniversary. Peter even dressed up with goggles and a smock allowing folks to throw pies at him to help raise funds for charity. I unfortunately had to work, so after helping set up had to leave, appreciate Continue reading
