    The Edmonton Christian Community Church (ECCC) are hosting a Yard Sale on August 17 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at their church (8810 65 Avenue). Residents of Argyll Community are invited to join them in helping their fundraising event.

    The ECCC are faithful contributors to many of our Argyll Events through their own volunteering as well as with contributions like the inflatable play areas. They are good neighbours to us and have raised funds for our recent playground redevelopment. Their event is in support of "Seed of Grace" and "Edmonton Restaurant Gospel Fellowship". Mark the date on your calendar to visit their sale and see if there is anything of interest.

    Bountiful Farmer's Market

    Bountiful Farmers’ Market is a new market which opened in June. It is located in central south Edmonton not far from Argyll. It contains over 100+ local vendors, an ethnic food hall and community based programming to engage and enhance the lives of their customers. They are setting a new standard for what a farmers’ market can be.

    There are a lot of free, family friendly programmes operating within the Marketplace. It’s Edmonton’s year round, multi-day, indoor market with main stage programming for all ages. You’ll find Bountiful open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at 3696 97 Street NW, Edmonton.

    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.

    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.
