Community Hall Construction Update – September 2019

| Featured

The new CKE Community Centre is here! Our brand new facility is officially open, while the final pieces are being put in place. The effort of CKE board members and other volunteers has been tremendous. With all the activity going on to make this a reality, August flew by! From last-minute tweaks and accelerated timelines to new programming opportunities and unexpected wins, the CKE team and partners have pulled off an absolutely stunning facility for the families of Chinook Park, Kelvin Grove, and Eagle Ridge.
Thank you to everyone in the CKE communities for your contributions.  The necessary items required for occupancy and fall programming have been acquired, including a few of the niceties we all hoped for thanks to your generous donations. As the facility becomes operational, we expect that incidental costs will arise. These expenses were anticipated and have been worked into the current budget.Our construction partner, Centron, will be wrapping up their on-site duties by the end of September as minor deficiencies are fixed. The impact on hall activity and programming will be minimized as much as possible during this time. The property ground maintenance efforts will be ongoing for a number of months as landscaping plans take shape and community gardens plots are rejuvenated.

As you well know by now, the Grand Opening BBQ is Sunday September 15th from 2pm – 5pm. We hope to see you there for the ribbon cutting at 2:30 and BBQ and family fun to follow. Fall programming is underway; check out what’s going on and consider booking your next event at the CKE Community Centre.  Thank you again to the CKE Community Board, community members and our partners, Centron and Casola Koppe Architecture for bringing home this beautiful facility.

President’s Message – September 2019

| Featured, News

Hi Neighbours,

I hope you’ve all had a great summer. It’s hard to believe the kids are getting ready to go back to school already.  As you’ve seen, the new Community Centre is getting close to completion and looking amazing. We are scheduled to take occupancy at the end of August and for programming to start mid-September. Fitness classes, before and after school child care, open gym nights, senior programming and many other options are in the works. Typically, the Board and community committees take some time off in the summer but many have been tirelessly working non-stop to get this project across the finish line; thanks to all of them for their hard work!!

We are also excited to announce that we’ve exceeded our initial fundraising goals and are now working with Centron to add as many of the items we can. Additional donations are still welcome to finalize budgeted items and programming. Thanks to all that were/are able to help.

I hope you’ve had an opportunity to check out the pickleball addition at the tennis courts. Thank you to Lindsey and Pickleball Calgary for introducing it to us. Drop-ins are welcome Monday mornings at 9am and Tuesdays at 6pm.

A reminder to read up on the Calgary Police recommendations to avoid car prowlings and break-ins; let’s keep our neighbourhood and your property protected.

I hope to see everyone at the Grand Opening BBQ on September 15th.
