Please e-mail our Casino Coordinator if you can help out by doing a shift. Let us know your preferred position, date and time. If you know of anyone else who might be able to lend a hand, then point them to his page and have them contact the coordinator. Roxanne, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Parent & Tot Playgroup is returning. The group use the lounge area of the hall on the last Friday of each month with a NEW TIME from 9:30 – 11:30 AM. The program is for parents/caregivers and their young children ages 0-5 to drop by and make friends with other families in Argyll as well as have fun. This is a free service for community residents and we ask you to bring your own snacks and beverages.
Argyll Community is pleased to be able to present this Hatha Yoga Programme to both residents and the general public. Classes are held during winter and spring (in the lounge area of the hall) each Monday evening from 7:30 — 9:00 PM. Cost to register is; $100.00 for 11 classes. Drop-in rates are $10.00 per class for Argyll residents, $12.00 for non-residents.
This is Hatha Yoga with a focus on building mindfulness, strength and flexibility. Our instructor is Renee Giammarioli (an Argyll resident) who is a Yoga Association of Alberta Certified Yoga Instructor and is also a physiotherapist.
We limit the class to 12 students. Contact Renee if you are planning to register. Also be sure to let her know if you have a recent injury or some physical limitations. You can call Renee at 780.903.1911.
Sundays with Neighbours – in the Playground
A casual gathering of neighbours have been continuing their Sundays in the Park, 3:00 – 5:00 PM every Sunday. This is an informal time to drop by, knowing there will be other families hanging out there as well.
There is no agenda or organized play. Just parents and kids getting familiar with each other.
Who are "The Jammers"?
Each week a group of musicians spend a little time together playing songs and keeping time. They meet on Thursdays from Noon until 3:00 PM in the main hall of the Argyll Community Centre. They welcome any instrument you are willing to jam with. Electric and Acoustic instruments are both welcome.
If you want to sit-in on what they get up to each week, then contact Ken by phone and get the details for their next jam. You can come and sing, play along or just relax and enjoy the music. Call Ken 780.466.8127 for more information. There is a $2.00 fee for use of the hall.
Garbage Pick up
The City of Edmonton Waste Management Branch is asking people to use the proper size of garbage container. Oversize garbage cans increase the risk of injury to waste collectors and are no longer being collected.
Bylaw #13777 limits the size of a container to less than 100 litres.
