Fall is upon us, and our community is looking lovely with all of the leaves turning. With the return to school and work, we’ve all got a lot of adjusting to do (and not just to our clocks on November 1!) Fall is also the time that we reset and revisit schedules and habits in our own lives. Do you feel like trying something new this October? Be sure to check out what is happening in our CKE Community Association Hall’s gym, event spaces, and fitness studios at https:// ckecommunity.com/ to turn over your own new leaf!
Fall is also the time that we kick off our Annual Member- ship Drive. Have you got your 2021 CKE Community Association Membership yet? Now is the time to sign up to support your community! We’ve got some new plans in place to keep our neighbours safe during this year’s membership drive, so we won’t be having canvassers go door to door. Instead, please click on “buy a membership” to purchase your CKE Community Associa- tion membership today. Still want to use the paper form? Feel free to clip out the one in newsletter and drop
it off in our Hall mailbox (or call Louise at 403-289-2724 to arrange for us to pick up the form from your home).
Due to COVID-19 closures and safety measures, our Community Association Hall has lost five months of revenue, and we’ve had to cancel our key fundraiser for the year. Purchasing a 2021 CKE Community Association membership is more important than ever this fall, and we deeply appreciate those community members who have already done so.
I know I speak on behalf of our board and all our CKE volunteers when I wish you all a warm Thanksgiving full of gratitude and joy. We’ve got a lot to be grateful for this month. From bottle drives (our next one is November 7), to a newly resurfaced tennis court, to Halloween fun (save the date for October 24!) our CKE community is more vibrant than ever. That is all thanks to our amazing neighbours.
Thank you to everyone for making the CKE a great place to be!
Stay well, stay safe, and stay in touch!
CKE CA President

City Planning and Engagement Opportunities
Proposed “Guidebook for Great Communities”
“With the Guidebook for Great Communities (Guidebook), we are planning communities in Calgary so they offer more housing, shops, and service choices for the people who live, work and visit them. When a community provides more opportunities, people can live in their neighbourhood regardless of age, income or stage in life”
To see what the Guidebook is all about, click here:
Liveable Streets community engagement initiative in the Heritage Communities area.
The information gathered through their project will focus on enhancing walking and wheeling on Neighbourhood Streets, making them safer, more comfortable and welcoming for all community members. The engagement will create project lists that will be implemented through existing budgets and over time through redevelopment opportunities. To have your say in what makes moving in your community great, or could be improved, visit Calgary.ca to participate in the online survey. Their Survey is open until March 31.

Each year, at our AGM, the community association recognizes an individual or group who consistently participates in making our community a great place to live.
We are lucky to live in a community with so many volunteers willing to take roles of responsibility in our CA. This year the board selected Chris Doyle as the recipient of the award.
Chris joined the board in 2012 as Traffic director and quickly worked up the ranks to Vice President and on be President from 2014-2016. He is retiring and rounding out is 8 years with the board as the Secretary.
During these 8 years he met the challenges and the growing pains of the old hall while the fundraising began to build the new one.
Always game to participate and support the fundraising ideas he was game to play Marty McFly for the Back to the Future themed Wine and Whiskey, ride a tricycle in one of the videos that went viral in the neighbourhood and even step up to play dunk the president at the yearly fall BBQ in the water dunk tank.
These were more of the fun moments during his reign…some of the more contentious and less than fun moments were the BRT project, the Bantrel threat and the challenging hall build. All of which he met with integrity and with the best interest of the community in mind.
Chris has spent hours and hours volunteering on CKE projects and all to the benefit of the community. He took each role he had on the board seriously and was committed to them. Board members always went to him to get answers, guidance and governance as he is such a strong leader and has the ability to look at a situation from all sides and with great clarity.
Under Chris’ stewardship and in the 8 years of him being on the board, a few success to be mentioned are:
~ Approved and voted in the skate spot
~ Upgraded the rink rat tractor
~ Raised 2 Million dollars to build a new hall
~ Building the new hall and the lifecycle of that project
~ Rebuild the garden
~ Replaced the tennis courts
A big thank you to Chris for his years devoted to CKE and for his dedication to bettering the community.
You leave behind a legacy of work you should be proud of and one that the community is very grateful and appreciate of.
If you see them in the community be sure to congratulate our 2020 CKE Community Builder Award winner!
