Community Day Trip - Rosebud Theater - Driving Miss Daisy
Saturday, May 19, 2018, 09:45am - 05:30pm

A minimum of 40 people must sign up for each trip to maintain the costs.  Please sign up by at least 3 weeks prior to each trip to allow us to meet the deadlines for confirming tickets and the bus.  For more information or to reserve your seats, please contact Linda at 403 289-8390 or lohanlon@telus.net.


Rosebud Theatre, Driving Miss Daisy, Saturday matinée, May 19th: 

Daisy, a cantankerous old widow of wealth, is reluctant to accept help form anyone, especially the new chauffeur hired by her son. Her treatment of her new driver is aloof and dismissive. But Hoke is patient, and incident by incident, prejudices and stereotypes are revealed and shattered. Over the course of 25 years, a friendship develops between the two of them. This is the story of that friendship.

The cost for this trip is estimated to be $105 for adults and $85 for youths age 4 to 20.  Unfortunately, Rosebud Theatre is no longer offering reduced matinée prices or including complimentary tea and coffee and, at this point, we don’t have a subsidy available. The price does include motor coach transportation, delicious and varied buffet lunch, and the play. 

We would leave from the MPCA hall parking lot at 9:45 a.m. and should be on the bus by 4:00 p.m. for the drive back to Calgary.

What’s Happening

  • Annual Mount Pleasant Christmas Party

  • 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   

    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.
