Scarboro is a small old community in relation to burgeoning Calgary. The community association has worked to maintain the overall area as an attractive residential zone for families and others. Our story is about people who have believed in our communities and whose work has made them continue as attractive places to live. The Community associations is a neighbourhood-based volunteer organization, that provides a voice for community life, an overall sense of belonging, and social, educational and recreational opportunities for their residents. Everyone is welcome to attend the monthly meetings, and particularly the annual general meeting, where many community members purchase or renew their Community Association Memberships.
