2014 – June 14

“June 14 dawned sunny and the day turned hot and windy as preparations were made for the official opening of the new Fulton Ravine South Park. The skate park itself was heavily used all morning and throughout the afternoon, as a couple of hundred people gathered for the opening event.

Starting at 13:00, some short announcements and introductions were made by Gavin Martinson, president of the Fulton Place Community League. On hand were Edmonton Gold Bar Member of the Legislative Assembly David Dorward, City Councillor Ben Henderson, and City of Edmonton personnel Debi Anderson, Melanie Gizowski, and Lynn Ferguson. Ottewell Community League president Bob Hutchinson, a long-time booster of the park, also spoke briefly. South East Community Leagues Association (SECLA) president Lori Jeffery-Heaney expressed thanks to the many who made this new park possible. Following the speeches, four live bands played in succession. A food truck was on hand to provide convenient meals and refreshments.

Membership and fundraising tables were manned by the Strathearn, Forest/Terrace Heights, and Kenilworth community leagues. Hardisty School was also selling licorice to raise funds for a student trip.”

Improv Night in support of Strathearn New Hall Fund was a complete success.

yegmusical.nov27The Strathearn Community League hosted its first night of Improv on Thursday, November 27, 2014 at La Cite Francophone (8627 Rue Marie-Anne Gaboury (91 Street)). Friends came out for a night of laughter in support of the new community hall fund. The full length Improv was performed by The 11 O’Clock Number who perform at Edmonton’s Grindstone Theater. With Strather-tini’s, Beer & Wine, a 50/50 Draw and serious laughs, it was an amazing night.
