Saddle Ridge News
Saddle Ridge Community Association
Saddle Ridge Community Association(SRCA) is a non-profit organization since 1968. The SRCA is the only voice of the Saddle Ridge Community to the Government, Developers, Calgary Parks, and the City of Calgary. The amount of effort already put in by the Board on the land use, soccer program and recycling over the last few years is significant! Community Spirit is another big reason to have our Community Association. Over the past few years the SRCA has held numerous successful community events including the Pond Parties, Casino, Recycling and the Community Clean-ups to name a few. All of this requires the effort and dedication of the SRCA volunteers as well as funding from grants, donations, and your membership fees.
