President’s Message

Sunday, December 8th

In early December we will be having our Annual General Meeting (AGM). What is an Annual General Meeting you ask? This is an opportunity to provide feedback to the community association on what programs you would like to see, ideas for building improvements, raise concerns over issues you may see in the community and to volunteer for board positions that are coming up for election.

We will be making this a very interactive session this time where you can meet and talk to representatives from the current Abbeydale Board of Directors, the City of Calgary and the Province of Alberta as well as from City Police and potentially from the Federation of Calgary Communities.

Please reserve the date – Sunday December 8th at 2:00 pm in the main hall. Refreshments will be provided as well as a door prize. We really hope to see you there.
