URGENT: Rink Shack Volunteers Needed

Many more volunteers are needed to keep the rink shack open in the evenings and on weekends this winter. If you have 2-3 hours to spare once a week, once every two weeks or once a month please let us know. We need people at the rink shack to open it up so skaters can come in to warm up and to ensure the safety and security of skaters and the property. You can come and skate while you volunteer. Contact president@avonmore.org if interested. 

Avonmore Rink
Our rink is now open! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make it one of the first community rinks to be open in the city this winter.
 The rink shack will be open from 4 -8 on weekdays and noon until 6 on weekends starting Tuesday, December 11th - as long as we have volunteers available.

The Official Opening of the rink will be on Saturday, December 15th at 5:00 before the Community Potluck and Caroling. Come out with your friends and family for great food and fun. 

EPS Presentation on Community Safety at Pancakes in the Park: All information presented by the Edmonton Police Service can be found on this web site, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design. It contains a lot of good information on home and property safety. 

Neighbourhood Watch. We are in the process of forming a Neighbourhood Watch group. Resident Natasha Holmkvist has agreed to be the key contact and Andrea Schmidt will assist her. Email president@avonmore.org if you are interested in helping. 

Parent & Tot Program. This FREE drop-in program runs weekly and will resume mid-September. Watch the Facebook page and this web site for more details. We do a mix of outside/inside play activities and arts and crafts. Our group has a mix of small babies and toddlers so there is someone for everyone to play with.  

Tool Library. As a pilot project, Avonmore Community League has purchased a one year membership to the Edmonton Tool Library. With this membership, our community league members can now access the library's tools at no charge. They are open Saturday afternoons only.

The library is located at the north end of Gretzky Drive, at 7308 - 112 Ave. 

The web site, www.edmontontoollibrary.ca, lists all the tools they have available. 

Please be aware that this is a pilot project. If you use the library, please send a quick email to our director-at-large, Bob Raynard. If there is interest and the tool library is being used, we will consider renewing our membership. 

Avonmore Book Club. Starting in mid September a new Book Club will launch as a “Group” under the Avonmore Community League page. Watch for details here and on the Avonmore Community League Facebook page or contact Anita at president@avonmore.org 

Avonmore Community League is on Facebook! Join us there for current news, information and discussion.
