    Argyll’s 2020 Casino was Thursday, January 23 and Friday, January 24 at Casino Edmonton on Argyll Road. We want to thank all those who stepped forward to help us out with this year's fundraising effort.

    The casino is our community’s primary fundraising activity. For every volunteer hour we receive about $250.00 in return. We put this income toward hall operations as well as special projects.If you have never volunteered for a non-profit casino before, we can quickly provide coaching and guidance for any of the required positions.

    Argyll YOGA

    Classes have moved to Tuesday

    Yoga for Strength, Alignment and Flexibility

    Tuesdays 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM at Argyll Hall

    This programme is instructed by Renee Giammarioli, a Physiotherapist and YAA Certified Hatha yoga instructor. Renee blends both easy and challenging poses, flow sequences and mindfulness meditation practice into each class. The class is geared towards increasing your body awareness, stretching out chronically tight muscles, for improving postural alignment and increasing awareness of the breath. Core strength and overall body strengthening will also be challenged. Renee is skilled at adapting the yoga practice for people with an injury or limitation, using props and adaptations as required. Feel free to contact Renee at 780.903.1911 if you have any questions about the class.

    This winter/spring session will consist of (2) two 8-week registrations. Cost to register is $60 for 8 classes, or you can drop in for $10 per class – space permitting. The first class will be on Tuesday, January 07, and will end mid-May. There will be no class on February 18.

    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.

    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"?

    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.

    What is the Snow Angels Program?

    Snow Angels is a broad, community based education campaign about snow removal which recognizes those citizens who shovel regularly or who help a neighbour out. Community Leagues participate in the program in order to help promote better sidewalk clearing, recognize people who shovel on a regular basis, as well as those who help their neighbors in need. Argyll Community League is a participating member. Residents who participate in the Snow Angels programme can receive prizes as well as recognition from our community league.

    As a community, we want to encourage everyone to keep their sidewalks free of snow and ice. We also want to encourage residents to consider helping a neighbour. Many people in Argyll need help due to mobility or health issues and might not always ask for help. If you need help shoveling your walk, please contact Dave Trautman at 780.463.9310.

    If you are a senior needing help with your walk this winter, please contact the South East Edmonton Seniors Association: 780.468.1985.

    This is our opportunity to make sure Argyll residents keep sidewalks safe for everyone and to help out our neighbors who might need assistance.

    Volunteer "Snow Angels" will be eligible for a prize pack from Boston Pizza. Become a Snow Angel by:

    Let's work together to keep our sidewalks clear. If you wish to report the fine work of a Snow Angel for recognition contact Dave Trautman at the number above.
