    Indoor Pool Schedule

    Commonwealth Pool was chosen last year when the Millwoods Pool was closed for renovations (shortly after we were booked into it) and we went to Millwoods because Bonnie Doon Pool was closed for an extended period of time (a pool we have used for a few decades) so our record is 3 for 3 in shutting down pools we book into. We will stay with this facility unless the membership wish to move to another pool.

    Show your new Community League Family Membership Card when you visit any pool in summer or winter.

    EJCA – Annual Fall Bazaar

    Each year the Edmonton Japanese Community Association (EJCA) hold a Craft sale, lunch, and Bazaar in the centre. This year's event will be on a Saturday, October 20th from 11:30 AM until 2:00 PM.

    You'll have a chance to sample home made treats, look over some very special giftware, and even sit down for a Bento lunch or some Sushi. Just drop in during the day and see what's up. Details can be found on the EJCA Web site.

    The EJCA always welcomes local residents to their bazaar. Stop in and learn a little bit about our community partners.

    Fruits of Sherbrooke

    A tree loaded with green apples

    This is a small not-for-profit group in Edmonton with a mission to "rescue" forgotten or unused urban fruit. They are community-based and were started in the neighbourhood of Sherbrooke – thus the name – and they have grown large enough to rent the Westmount Community League kitchen to do their work. They process the fruit into preserves and jams, which are for sale.

    During the winter months the organization often sells the product of their work at the City Market in downtown Edmonton. You can support their efforts by seeking them out and buying some of the great preserves they created. The City Market is Edmonton's original year-round market. Visit the Fruits of Sherbrooke web site for other retailers who are carrying their products.

    They are looking for residents to donate excess fruit from their gardens in 2018. They teach courses on making traditional cooked jams as well as freezer jams and these are offered on a regular basis out of their Westmount kitchen operation. They are also keenly interested in any volunteer time people can spare to help them with their efforts.

    If you are interested in learning more about Fruits of Sherbrooke, go to their website www.fruitsofsherbrooke.ca and check out their Blog entries as well as the many successes they had in 2017.

    Progressive Supper

    Deadline is October 16 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 Sixth edition of the Argyll Community Progressive Supper will be held on Saturday October 20th 2018 from 4:00 – 8:00 PM. This event is a great way to meet your neighbours and share your love of living in Argyll. It is coordinated by Karine Orser of the Events Committee and involves some simple requirements for participating. First of those is signing up for the event. Karine has an electronic method of signing up HERE and would be happy to follow up with anyone who cannot do it electronically. The deadline for signing up is October 16th. 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.
