Ever been curious about what happens at a Community League Board meeting? Our Executive and Directors each provide an update of their respective areas to the entire group. We discuss any ongoing or new issues, along with ideas for the future.
You may not know that all Beverly Heights Community League members are welcome to attend the meetings. They occur the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm.
Here are some of the highlights of what was discussed at our October meeting:
- Playground Revitalization Committee is working on its Terms of Reference and is looking to have those in place and approved by November. Check out our Groups & Committees page for more information on this committee.
- Due to concerns raised surrounding the proposed expansion of the South Edmonton Sanitary Sewer Line into the Gold Bar Treatment Plant, the Beverly Heights Community League voted to submit a letter to City Council requesting additional review and further public engagement. As a result, we have been invited to meet with City Council at their Utility Council meeting on October 25. Our Civic Affairs Director, Chris Keeler, will be in attendance, and the public is welcome.
- Our Main Hall and Family Centre Rental Policies have been updated, thanks to the work of our Rentals Subcommittee. Any rental contract signed on or after November 1, 2018 is subject to the new policies. Please check the website for updates policies and rates.
- 25th Annual Christmas Craft & Gift Show is coming up on Saturday, November 24 from 10:00 – 4:00. Yes, it’s the Grey Cup weekend, which means you can get some shopping done before the game! There are a few tables left, so if you are interested in a table, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Do you have time to spare to volunteer at the event? Please click here and sign up!
- Walk Your Block! Our Neighbourhood Watch Director encourages all of us in the community to walk your block. This is an initiative designed to prevent crime before it happens in our neighbourhood.
- 49th Annual Variety Show will kick off its volunteer recruitment with a wine and cheese event on December 4 at 7:00 pm. We need lots of volunteers to continue to make this event a success.
- Inaugural Meeting of the Beverly Ladies Society will be held on October 24 starting at 6:30. Come join us for goodies and coffee and to meet other ladies in the community. Not too sure what a ladies society is? Be part of it from the beginning and help make it something special.
