    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.

    Mill Creek Clean-up — Sunday May 05

    The Annual Mill Creek Clean Up is always the first Sunday in May, so this year it falls on May the 5th. The fine folks of Ritchie and Hazeldean take the lead on organizing things for the South Ravine Clean Up (South of the Whyte Avenue bridge). Nancy Rempel and company, with Keepers of Mill Creek, organize the North Ravine Clean Up.

    Start time is 10:00 AM. Argyll will have their own official entrance point for our neighbourhood to participate in the Mill Creek Ravine Clean-up. Please meet at the bottom of the tobogganing hill (just east of 84 Street) where committee members will provide you with bags and gloves. This is only a two hour commitment.

    Meeting Points:
    Hazeldean: The Greenway at 93 Street
    King Edward Park: Shamrock Curling Parking Lot
    Ritchie: 77 Ave Stairs at the ravine (east of 96 Street)

    BBQ starts @ 12:00 PM at Ritchie Hall (7727 98 Street)

    We hope to see you out there, rain or shine!

    Argyll YOGA continues

    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 the lounge area of the hall each Monday evening from 7:30 — 9:00 PM. Cost to register is $60.00 for 8 classes and $120.00 for two 8-week classes, or you can drop in for $10.00/class

    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.

    Is there a Parent & Tot Playgroup?

    Our Parent & Tot Playgroup is taking a break until next fall. The group normally use the lounge area of the hall on the last Friday of each month from 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon. 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.

    Look for news about this next fall.

    Who are "The Jammers"?

    Jammer Group playing in the hall together

    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.

    Dogs in the Park

    It is that time again when dog owners like to bring their four-legged kids to the park. While most of us are dog fans, not every one is. This is why the City of Edmonton has regulations concerning dogs in our parks. There are two bylaws which every dog owner needs to be aware of. Both the Animal and Licensing Bylaw and the Parkland Bylaw apply to dog owners. The following is a quote from bylaw 2202:

    Unless otherwise permitted by this bylaw no person shall allow any animal under their control, or for which they are responsible, to be on Parkland. A person may have a dog on parkland so long as the Dog is:

    1. leashed and on an Improved Trail or an Unimproved Trail;
    2. leashed and on a Boulevard;
    3. leashed and in an area governed by signage permitting dogs; or
    4. in an Off Leash Area; but only if the dog is, at all times, kept at least 10 meters from any developed playground or picnic site

    Please be respectful for all the other children and families who use the parks, while we love our pets and they are a part of our families, not everyone likes dogs, some even have allergies.

    An example of what the proper containers look like.

    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.
