2021 CKE Membership

July 26, 2020

Fall is Membership Time!

CKE Membership Drive kicks off annually in September.
Annual Memberships are $40 for families and $25 for seniors.

Due to COVID this year, and to ensure the safety of our volunteers and neighbours, we will not be having canvassers going door-to-door. Our canvassing is one of the key ways for generating membership sales. With the hall having to be closed for 5 months, we lost revenue, had to cancel our key fundraiser and had expenses still being incured. Please support the CKE Community by purchasing your 2021 membership as soon as possible.

There are a couple of options for purchasing:
Online or
• Complete the form below and mail or drop it off in the Hall mailbox. (1015 – 73 Avenue SW T2V 0R9).
We are also offering to pick up the form from your home if needed, please call Louise 403.289.2724 to arrange.

What does your membership money go towards? Examples are:
• Skating Rinks (tractor upkeep, fuel & lights)
• Fall BBQ
• Kids’ Halloween Parties
• Website Upkeep & Communications
• Operating Costs, such as:
• Lawn Maintenance
• Snow Removal
• Garbage & Recycling Pick-Up
• Utilities
• Insurance
• Safety Inspections

President’s Message – March 2021

March 15, 2021

Hello Neighbours!

Spring is just around the corner and it is one of my favourite times of year in CKE. It is wonderful to see neighbours walking their kids to school, preparing their gardens, and taking time to enjoy the fresh air and reconnect after a long winter!

This March brings our annual, and very popular, flower fundraiser, brought to us by Growing Smiles Fundraising Flowers. Their relentless focus on quality is what brings them back year after year. All proceeds of the sale go to the CKE Community Association, and we are thankful for your support! Details are available on the website. It is also the beginning of gardening season! Our community gardens are such a great place to grow food, flowers, and friendships. There are still a few boxes available for rent this spring! If you are interested, please contact Sonja at sonja_ johnson20@hotmail.com.

This is also the time our neighbours register kids for Heritage Soccer – an important community program that we are hoping to bring back this year. Please stay tuned for updates and registration details on our website. If you have questions regarding soccer, or want to volunteer, you can email CKEheritagesoccer@gmail.com.

Looking ahead to the spring, we would love to recruit additional members for the CKE Community Association Board. If you have any interest, please reach out. For more information, you can contact any of us at ckecommunity@gmail.com. This is a great opportunity to give back and help shape the future of the CKE.

Stay well, stay safe, and stay in touch!

2020 CKE Community Builder Award

October 19, 2020

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!
