CKE Bottle Drives so far have brought in approximately $8800. 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, January 9, 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!

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
• Safety Inspections
Thank you for your ongoing support!
Our CKE neighbourhood will be hosting some great activities this month, starting with our next bottle drive! This has been such a successful fundraiser, so be sure to raise a glass (or a bottle or two) before January 9, in support of the Community Association. It is a great excuse to keep that holiday spirit flowing! Our CKE Clothing Bin is always open for donations too. Drop off your gently used clothing in the blue bin outside the hall any time, and it will be donated to those in need. Thank you to everyone in our community for your generosity and kindness, it is so wonderful to see our community rising up to support those less fortunate, in so many ways.
Thank you also to everyone who has been taking good care to keep our CKE rinks safe during the enhanced COVID-19 restrictions. You may have seen temporary signage go up, asking us all to limit our time on the rinks, maintain a hockey stick apart from folks not in our household cohort, and requesting that we obey all of the provincially mandated regulations on outdoor gatherings and mask rules. We appreciate how well everyone is doing with these difficult limitations, we’d like to thank all of you in our CKE, for helping us keep our rinks, and our community safe. Thank you especially to our Rink Rat volunteers who’ve helped us maintain our rinks at times when ice surfaces in town have been few and far between, you have been a bright light in this difficult time for many CKE skaters!
Stay well, stay safe, and stay in touch!
