Zoomer & Boomer Lunch
Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 11:30am
Zoomers and Boomers - Next Lunch Wednesday, March 28th

When I was a boy the Dead Sea was only sick. - George Burns

We’re back in the swing of things as 2018 starts.  At January’s lunch we enjoyed a fine lunch of cabbage rolls, pyrogies, and the remaining desserts donated by our group from our December lunch.  This was followed by some rousing games of crib and whist.  At the upcoming February lunch, a speaker on fraud awareness for seniors will join us and in March we’ll have a choice of movies, comedies to laugh off some of our lunch.

If you’re age 60 or over, join us in the Upper Hall on the 4th Wednesday of each month (2nd Wednesday in December) for a delicious hot meal followed by entertainment that varies each month (speaker, conversation, movie, games, etc.).  Our doors open at 11:30, lunch is served around noon, and the entertainment follows.  We can arrange rides to and from each lunch for people who have difficulty getting out.  We want to meet you and are happy to provide this opportunity for you to socialize with your neighbours. Please register before coming so we know how many people to plan for.  If you would like to be on our invitation list, please call Linda at (403) 289-8390 or email lohanlon@telus.net.

  • The Survey Results Are In!

    Take a look at the survey results for the potential hall renovation or new hall. We ran this survey for several months trying to get as much feedback from all of you as possible. Here are the results. Check them out and if you have anything more to add please email: halldirector@mpca.ca   
  • PLEASE DON'T PLANT TREES ON CITY PROPERTY WITHOUT CITY PERMISSION

    Given that we recently had a local community member planted some trees in the green space on 20th Ave (Dog Park) and on the boulevard the City has provided the following key point: Trees and shrubs are regulated under the Street Bylaw and under section 68(6) : No owner or occupant of private property adjacent to a Street shall plant any trees, plants, or shrubbery of any nature on the Boulevard without first obtaining a line assignment and excavation permit from the Director, Roads. – Essentially to plant on a city boulevard you need permission from the Roads Department All trees planted by Urban Forestry are sourced in accordance with the Clean Plants Program. This insures that the plant material we receive is free from pests and disease. The introduction of unknown trees and shrubs into a greenspace could potentially bring pest or disease that has an overall impact on the urban forest. Urban Forestry would not be aware of the “ random trees” so they would not be added into our inventory system. Our tree inventory is how we determine maintenance schedules, watering schedules, and regular inspections for health and risk. Appropriate placement and planting is essential so there is no interference or damage caused to underground utilities. Proper placement also allows maintenance activities such as mowing to remain efficient, and allow enough spacing so machinery and trees are not damaged.
