Through the NeighbourWoods Program, more than 50 trees were planted in Montgomery on June 21. Thanks to all those who signed up for the program, to the City for their support and hard work, and to the volunteers who made it all happen.
The trees are coming! Successful NeighbourWoods applicants and community volunteers (to help with some planting) are asked to meet at the community centre on June 21 (applicants at 9:30, volunteers at 10:00). Click through for more information. Continue reading
What’s the tree situation at your place? NeighbourWoods might be just the thing for you. It’s a residential tree planting program – the City provides a tree (or several) to be planted on City-owned land adjoining your lot, and you agree to monitor and water the tree for 5 years. Participation fee is $30 for each tree, only payable after a City gardener does a site visit with you to confirm location and species. With all the snow we’ve been having, the City decided to extend the Neighbourwoods deadline to April 30, so that we have a chance to get in the “spring spirit” and start thinking about tree planting. For more information on the program click here.
If you are planning a garage/yard sale this spring, why not sign up for the “Parade of Garage Sales” event on April 26? We’ll advertise to get people to Montgomery and distribute paper and electronic maps of the sales in the community that day. More people, more business, everybody happy. For more info, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and click on the notice on the right. Last day to sign up so that your sale gets on the map–Wednesday, April 23.
We hope to make the Eighth Annual Clean-Up and Recycling Event, scheduled for Saturday, May 3, 2014, the biggest and best yet. If you would like to contribute to this event in some capacity, either in the planning stages or on the day itself, contact the Community Association at 403-247-3116 or email@example.com .
The community clean-up is back! Bring your hard-to-discard items to the community centre between 9 and 2 on Saturday, May 3 and dispose of them for free. In past years this event has been POPULAR, so be prepared to wait a little while. There have been a few changes since last year, so click on the poster to the right for all the details.
Sorry, we can’t take large furniture, mattresses, or commercial building materials this year.
The Montgomery Heritage Committee is seeking to capture our colourful history through photographs this year. Current and former community members are invited to share some of their collections of Montgomery photos from the 1960s and earlier at one of our Build-a-Legacy “scan-a-thon” events. We’ll scan photos (albums okay too) and return them on the spot so they won’t be lost or damaged, and get some info. from you about them. The scans will be preserved in the community centre archives for the use of future generations.
The first two scan-a-thons are scheduled at the community centre main hall for Sunday, April 13, anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and Monday, April 14, between 6 and 9 p.m. Continue reading
