    Argyll has a babysitting registry. Qualified local teens are ready to babysit kids within the neighbourhood. We are pleased to offer this service as a way for families & teens to connect. (We are not responsible for matchmaking or interviewing)

    A list of qualified sitters can be provided to you by sending an e-mail to: argyllsocial@gmail.com with your home and e-mail address.

    If you know of any other sitters seeking work, please e-mail their contact information so they might be added to the list.

    Jammer Group playing in the hall together

    All musicians (at any level of skill) are invited to spend a little time together playing songs and keeping time each week. 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. Singing on key is optional :-)

    If you want to sit-in on what they get up to each week, 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.

    AGM Video

    At the recent AGM a five minute video was played at the beginning of the meeting as people filed in. The movie is a retrospective of life in Argyll over the past three to four years. It's here for people who attended the AGM to view it a second time, as well as for anyone interested in it. If it doesn't play on your device or desktop, then check in with Dave Trautman and he will see if it can be fixed. It's a big file so it may pause with slower WiFi internet. Click to start.
