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.

Well this has definitely been the earliest that i have seen the trees with leaves and my tulips flowering. We have had an amazing winter so far but am holding to the rule of placing the garden in till long weekend as there is some cooler weather still to come, short blasts. but still some snow.

With another successful fun money casino behind us, I would like to thank Lori Froese for organizing the event, with help of many other from the bored that worked on getting items from local businesses of door prizes and silent auction items. I will have a full list of the local business for next newsletter. When out shopping, please be sure to give them any business to meet your needs.

Our next function is June 18th which is our Stampede Breakfast which is aways a great time for the family. In August, we will have our Annual slow Pitch Tournament and September 10 is our Community Clean Up, so please mark these date on your calendar.

That is all for this month, Wishing you all a good one and hope we get the moisture we need without it turning cold.
