Rink maintenance equipment is supplied by the league.  Initial ice creation may be made by another contractor. Compensation is $20/hr up to a maximum of $4,000 for the season.  To qualify for this contract the applicant must have taken (within the last 2 years) or willing to take the free Ice Making Course offered by the City of Edmonton. It is offered the evening of  November 12. If interested and/or for more information contact Anita at president@avonmore.org.

Seniors Fitness: The Avonmore Community League is partnering with the South Edmonton Seniors Association (SEESA) to offer a seniors' fitness class at Avonmore Hall starting in September 2019. The class will be offered on Thursday afternoons. The instructor, Linda Turnbull, will be offering a restorative mix of yoga and Pilates. Watch for more details in the Fall Avonmore Newsletter and in the next edition of the SE Voice. You can also contact Anita president@avonmore.org. The class will be open to all SEESA members and members of the Avonmore Community League. There will be a fee for the whole session as well as a drop-in rate.

If you are not familiar with SEESA it is an organization focused on offering persons aged 55 access to social, recreational, and support services that significantly contribute to their quality of life and a referral network to other essential services.

Seniors Coffee: Senior’s Morning Coffee will begin again on Wednesday, September 18th from 10:00 to noon. The mornings are a combination of information of interest to seniors and conversation. Come out and give it a try. For more information or if you need a ride contact Anita at president@avonmore.org
  

Avonmore Garden Club. The Avonmore Garden Club is open to all residents of Avonmore and King Edward Park with an interest in “growing stuff.” Our fall events include:

10:00 a.m. November 16, 2019: Food4Good – Who they are and what they do.

For more information contact gardenclub@avonmore.org or visit the 'Events' page. 

Neighbourhood Watch. The team has been hard at work getting signatures/sign ups from residents who support the program. We are now eligible for 2 additional signs which will be going up at entrances to the neighbourhood in the next few weeks. Contact ENW@avonmore.org to learn more about our neighbourhood watch initiative and to get involved. We need several volunteers (light commitment) to get signs for our neighbourhood!

Yoga. Fall Yoga starts on September 24th but why don't you join us for pre-session classes on September 10th & 17th with Emily ($7.00 drop-in fee). This is a chance to try out our classes if you’ve never been or a warm up for the fall session if you’ve missed yoga all summer.

Check out the Yoga page for more details about our fall programming.

Tori completed her first yoga teacher training in 2008 through the World Conscious Yoga Family in Rishikesh, India. She has since completed yoga training programs through Yogaworks, Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, Paul Grilley and Leslie Kaminoff.
