President’s Message – October 2017

Two celebrations in October are Thanksgiving Day on October 9 and Halloween on October 31. “Kids in Spanish” has kicked off the start of their program for the 2017 – 2018 season. Check out the advertisements in the newsletter and our website for program details. Contact Martha at 587-703-6815 for information.

Pickleball has resumed and our website and the CPC website will have details regarding the fall program. Pickleball has been a tremendous success for Cedarbrae; the Centre is known as a great venue for the sport. Call the Centre for information.

Our current proposed project work for 2017 has completed the South Patio Project. The Centre exterior painting is wrapped up as is the exterior, the mural will have completed next year, giving a fresh look to the hub of the Cedarbrae community. Also completed projects are upstairs kitchen island under-mounted wheels allowing for mobility, chair rails installed in several rooms, shelving has been fitted in the C-can to better store the Centre’s equipment, and the workshop has new used cupboards and drawers to provide more storage of tools and materials. In addition, a new Cedarbrae Community Centre signs are installed on the face of the building. We have an engineering assessment being done on the outdoor rink, this will ensure the foundation and basin are secure for many more years prior to installing new boards and repurposing the rink for year around activities.

There is a lot of discussion regarding the SW Transit and South West Calgary Ring Road. We post any information we receive on our website to assist in keeping you current with the latest news.

I would like to thank everyone whom attended the AGM this year and the new members stepping forward to join the Board. Our programs are regularly scheduled throughout the month, but are subject to change. Therefore, please check out our calendar and website or call the office for information. The Centre also brings many celebrations, weddings, birthdays, and parties of all kinds. We offer some beautiful renovated spaces for rent; please call the Centre office to book a tour. We would love to help you!
