Next Lunch Wednesday, June 26th “The first 40 years of childhood are always the hardest.” – QuotesIdeas We had a good ham and scalloped potatoes lunch in April, topped off with fudgsicles for dessert (skim milk to counter all those lovely potatoes). At time of writing, we’re looking forward to meeting another Mount Pleasant author at our May lunch. Ken Vanberg will speak about his new book, Get Rich Buy It Tomorrow. If you aren’t a senior, we hope you will join us after lunch for tea and coffee to hear Ken’s presentation. Although it’s snowing this weekend (it’s April now), we’re planning for the summer and, we hope, many games of bocce. Our annual picnic in the park, sponsored by The City of Calgary and MPCA, is set for July. Costco has given us a generous gift card which we may use for a bbq chicken lunch. The fun, good food, and good company happens every month. We’re happy to see the increased number of people who come to our lunches and especially to hear the volume of conversation. These lunches started to give community seniors a social opportunity, a reason to get out of their houses, renew old friendships, and make new ones. Many thanks to Mount Pleasant for sponsoring the lunches and to all of the volunteers who make them possible. That said, we know there are more seniors living in the community who would enjoy meeting their neighbours and a hot meal each month. We just can’t find you! If you are a senior living in Mount Pleasant or if you know of one, please get in touch with Linda at (403) 289-8390 or seniorsprograms@mpca.ca. You’ll learn about our lunches, day trips, exercise class, book club, and games session—all good ways to expand your world. If you need a ride, we’ll arrange that for you. We look forward to seeing new as well as familiar faces at our get-togethers.

  • 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.

  • MPCA Adults Game Day

    Except the forth Wednesday of the month We all need a break at least once a week to relax and chat with other adults.  Join us every Wednesday afternoon from 1:15 to 3:15 in the Upper Hall, 602 22 Ave. NW for games of your choice.  Our games are for fun only – we're not overly competitive and we do like to enjoy some conversation while we play. There are lots of options to choose from: bridge Scrabble crib euchre dominoes indoor badminton (if you'd like to get moving) In summer, we can go outside for bocce and horseshoes. Of course, we're eager to learn other games. If you would like to introduce one to the group, please bring any supplies needed and teach us the basics. We'll supply the coffee, tea, and water.  If you'd like to bring a donation for the Food Bank, we'll add it to MPCA's food drive boxes. If you have any questions or would like to join us, please contact Linda at lohanlon@telus.net or (403) 289-8390.
