Crossroads Community Association
The Crossroads community association is very active within the community. As a reflection of this older neighbourhood, the community’s Fifty Plus Club is very active, engaging in tours, potlucks, and dinner theatre activities. The community also holds several fundraising bingos each year. For the younger set, the Crossroads preschool is very popular. Girl Guides, Boy Scouts and Blockwatch all make use of the community centre for meetings. Crossroads offers a number of courses as well, in activities ranging from crafts to soccer and babysitting to parent and tot time. Special events are popular in Crossroads as well, and their annual Stampede breakfast is always a big hit.
