Next CKE Bottle Drop is November 7

| Featured

CKE Bottle Drives so far have brought in approximately $6500. Those funds have gone towards rebuilding the community garden, retaining wall at the community garden, handicap signage and a new picnic table. Keep hydrating!

Next Bottle Dropoff

Saturday, November 7, 2020  from 9:00 am to Noon

Drop off your bags of bottles (including cans, milk and juice containers) to the CKE Community Hall Parking lot during the hours of 9 am to noon.

To comply with Covid-19 precautions we will be asking each car/family to manage their own bottles and put them in the trailer for us.

By doing this we are aiming to reduce handling.

 

Please do not deliver bottles prior to 9 am or later then 12 pm that day. We do not want bottles left on the premises.

If you have any questions or concerns please call 403.852.1623

 

Thank you for your support. Stay safe!

| Featured

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

Thank you for your ongoing support!

President’s Message – July 2020

| Featured, CKE President's Message, Events, News

Hi Neighbours,

It’s been three exciting, challenging, and rewarding years. June marks my last month as the President of the CKE; or as my kids like to call me, the ‘Mayor of the CKE’. It’s been a pleasure working for the community and working with some amazing, talented, passionate, and committed Board Members, various committee members, and teams of volunteers. Three years ago, I was pretty sure the CKE was one of the best communities in the city, and I now realize we are the best.

We still have a few items to add at the hall but what an accomplishment. To all of the volunteers, donors, and current and past Directors who pulled this project across the finish line, I’m so proud to have been involved.

I also get to announce some more exciting news; the tennis courts are going to get a complete overhaul this summer, including official Pickleball courts. Lindsey Stene and her team have worked tirelessly over the past two years, fundraising and working with the city to make this substantial project happen. Also, a big thanks to Doug Young for the backyard fundraisers. One more big item to check off!! Hopefully, the rooftop patio will be next.

I am happy to announce that Anne-Marie Dorland, a new Director, will be taking over from me. She will be an amazing representative for the community and is eager to get started. Her experience in governance, communication and her passion for the community are going to be a huge asset to the CKE. I look forward to seeing where she takes us.

We’ve had a few Board Members resign this month and I do want to recognize how essential they have been for me personally in my role and to the community.

• Dan Kennelly has been a Director at Large for four years, and has done so much for the CKE. The amount of time and effort he has spent as the hall “Handyman” throughout the entire build and still today, is incred-ible. His get-it-done attitude is admirable; we are so lucky to have him as a neighbour.

• Sonja Johnson has been on the CKE Board for the past five years in a couple of roles, most recently, as Planning Director. Sonja’s knowledge, tact and passion for the CKE will be missed. We are fortunate to have her continuing to guide us and the city through ongoing planning initiatives.

• Liz Fontana has been the Communications Director for the past two years. Probably the most underappreciated role on the board, Liz has been incredible at keeping everyone informed. Her skill, delivery and the amount of time spent behind the scenes should be recognized and has been a huge value to the community. Prior to this role she was also the Social Director, a Member at Large and the Secretary. This year marks her 8th year on the Board.

• Dave Milne has been the Treasurer for the past two years. I’m sure it has felt more like ten with all of the work during the construction phase. We made it through, and Dave was a big part of that.

On behalf of the Board and the entire community, I want to thank you all for your efforts and commitment. You have truly made a difference.

We have a few other Directors stepping down at our AGM on Wednesday, September 23. We hope you can join us for this evening to say goodbye to outgoing Di-rectors and welcome the new ones!

On that note, I formally sign off as the President and welcome Anne-Marie. Thanks to all of the Board members and the entire community for your support; it has been a lot fun.

Merritt Ranseth,

Past CKE CA President
