Banff Trail’s October Message from the President

Presidents Message Banff Trail

The summer has come and gone, and we’re back to a beautiful fall in our lovely-treed community. This is also a time that seems to see many new residents come into the community, and I heartily encourage you to introduce yourself to any new neighbours you may have.

Information of Note in the Community:

  • Community Cleanup, Oct 13th, 1-4pm at Aberhart. Bring your junk to get rid of, or if you like junk, come get some! Felix Chan of Real Estate Professionals have organized it and are even paying for the BBQ after. It should be good clean fun.
  • We’re hosting an Open House, Saturday October 20th, noon to 3pm to show off our fabulous new kitchen and to just get a chance to meet and chat about our fine community. Please come and have a drink and a chat with us.
  • A great thanks to those of you who volunteered for the Casino. The proceeds to the community are unparalleled and make a long-term difference in the quality of life here. If you have any ideas or recommendations as to how we should use the funds, please email or call me.
  • We are in need of a Secretary on the community association board. This is a great role to introduce you to the joys of community volunteering and get you right into the loop of what’s going on in your neighbourhood. You don’t even need to take minutes, as we will have a scribe doing it at our meetings. If you’re interested, please email me: [email protected]
  • Are you young and community-minded? We’re creating a Banff Trail Youth Council, and if that piques your curiosity, please email me!
  • Our Conversation Club is more popular than ever. Every Monday 1-4pm a group of residents meet in the boardroom to talk about everything and anything. We supply coffee and a few snacks.
  • Free Boardgame Night has been very lively. The 2nd Friday of every month, 6:30pm to 11pm, in the basement. We provide light snacks and drinks. Bring your families, friends, and favourite games.
  • Look out for our Garden Shed Renovation coming this fall! Designed and constructed by our board members Alfred, Wanda, and Mike, it will be the center of may enchanting garden parties to come.
  • Have I missed anything important here? If so, please let me know!

Every one of these fantastic items happens thanks to the help of interested members of the community. If you have anything you’re interested in, don’t hesitate to get involved.  Our next meeting is Wednesday Nov 7th, 7-9pm, or send me an email at [email protected]. You’ll be welcomed into a pretty awesome group of neighbours who are here to make Banff Trail a great place to be.
