Community Winter Snowflake Art Project

HEY KIDS!

It’s time for the Hudson Bay Park / Mayfair / Kelsey-Woodlawn Winter Snowflake Art Project for youth 2-16 years old! Your homemade snowflake will be displayed in the windows at furnaceguys Home Heating & Cooling (411-33rd St W) from mid December until January 6 (snowflake drop off location is Mayfair Library).

You can design your own paper snowflake at home and give it to staff at MAYFAIR LIBRARY from DECEMBER 5 – 18. Give library staff your name and phone number for the random draw happening on December 20 for a prize (not a contest so all youth have a chance). 1 entry per youth (you can make more than 1 snowflake, but 1 entry for the draw)

Or you can join Mayfair Library’s “Cards, Crafts and Chocolate” program on Friday, December 16 from 3:30 – 5:30 pm to make your snowflake. The library will provide all art supplies.

Have fun with your snowflake design and help bring winter cheer to the neighbourhood!

A Great Day for the Community BBQ and AGM

Thank you to everyone who helped make our community BBQ and Annual General Meeting (AGM) a fun day for all!

It was so nice to see new faces along with familiar ones at the BBQ/AGM today.  We could not have asked for better weather!  Thank you so much to the fantastic youth group for setting up the soccer cage, and to Deanna and Jasmine with the giant Jenga game and other fun stuff from Mayfair Library.  Also thanks to Evan for taking care of the bouncy castle, and Elden for all your help at the BBQ with Bob.

We also want to give a warm welcome to newcomers Tara, Eric, Rachelle, Raelene, and Diane.  They have volunteered to help with the community newsletter, soccer, the secretary position, and in a member-at-large capacity.  Along with new additions to the community association, member Anna Cole has moved up to President, Janet Jackson is Rink Coordinator, and Robert Rudachyk and Dave Newton have moved to a Member at Large position.  We’re happy that our other members are staying with us for another year, and you can read the list of volunteers here: https://hudsonbayparkmayfairkelsey.org/executive/

We’re looking forward to a new year, with the first community association meeting being held on Wednesday, September 24th at 7pm, Ecole Henry Kelsey (in the staff room) at 16 Valens Drive.  Open to any residents in the Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair and Kelsey-Woodlawn neighbourhoods.

Thank you to all *Community Clean Up* Volunteers!

A big thank you to everyone who joined the Community Clean Up today in A.H. Browne Park! We had a fantastic turnout and were able to clean up the park and surrounding streets and alleys. The clean up was followed by lunch in the park while the kids had fun blowing bubbles and playing in the playground.
