    Progressive Supper

    Deadline is October 15 to sign up!

    Each year we invite residents of Argyll to join together and engage in a little one-on-one time with each other over a supper. This event is only open to residents of the Argyll neighbourhood for obvious reasons. Its purpose is to foster community and have fun.

    The Seventh edition of the Argyll Community Progressive Supper will be held on October 19th 2019 from 4:00 – 8:00 PM. This event is a great way to meet your neighbours and share your love of living in Argyll. We cater to special dietary needs as well.

    It is coordinated by Karine Orser of the Events Committee and involves some simple requirements for participating. You begin by signing up for the event. Karine has an electronic method of signing up HERE. The deadline for signing up is October 15th. This is a great chance to find out more about the lives and interests of the people who live in this area and to spend an evening traveling from home to home sharing a meal in four courses. Children are included in this activity.

    Last year's supper was a huge success. This is an Argyll Residents only event in case you're reading this from outside our neighbourhood.



    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.



    The "Talking Families Study" at the UofA

    The Child Language and Literacy Lab at the University of Alberta is looking for participants (four-year-old children and one of their parents) for their "Talking Families Study". In this study, they want to learn more about parents’ use of strategies when conversing with their preschool children.

    This study will help them learn more about the parent-child conversation and how it is related to school readiness.

    How?

    1. Parent and child read and retell a story, and talk about a recent event
    2. Parent answers a survey
    3. Child names some pictures, tells some stories, and plays some games

    Where? Your child's preschool/daycare OR the University of Alberta OR in your home. Child receives stickers, a storybook and a participation certificate. Parents receive a $15.00 gift card.

    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.



    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.
