Active Adults & Seniors
Strong, sustainable communities are built by the involvement and comradery of their residents.
There are a number of ways to get active and involved in the community and build connections.
Neighbours Helping Neighbours
Snow Angels help remove snow from the driveways and walkways of those who cannot, and provide an extremely valuable service to the community.
Strong Hands assist other members in the community with preparing for the Annual Large Item pickup, or just general help with moving heavy items.
Throughout the summer months many residents have trouble keeping up with basic lawn care including weeds, mowing, or gardening.
Do you need a hand? For more information please contact the Community & Social Development Coordinator at 403-227-3376.

Moovers & Groovers
Movers and Groovers is an active ADULTS group that get together twice a week to meet like people who are also interested in keeping active.
Activities focus on moving and may include indoor and outdoor walking, obstacle courses, dance, stretching and more. This is a free group activity that meets at the LLC Community Room on Wednesday's and Friday's, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. Starting up again on January 10th, come join us to benefit from improved physical health and creating new social networks.
For more information contact Karen Bradbury, Community & Social Development Coordinator at 403-227-3376.
Neighbourhood Block Party (May - September)
- It is a neighbourhood party organized and attended by people in your neighbourhood.
- The neighbours who want to take part either help organize, show up or both!
- Block Parties can be held in a number of different venues: on a neighbourhood street (street closure application applies) outside in a public park, inside a community hall, in a neighbour’s home, or a condo common area, to name a few.
- A Block Party can be a lot of fun and bring neighbourhood residents closer.
- Block Parties are sponsored by local businesses supplying free items to help make your party a success. Sponsorship
is limited and varies season to season.
How to Kick-start Planning a Block Party
- Start with printing off the Tool Kit below. Read the document and follow the party planning suggestions and application instructions.
- Use the Tool Kit suggestions and tools to reach out to your neighbours to create interest and ask for support.
- When neighbourhood has committed to a Block Party, complete the application and supporting documents. Submit your application package to the Town Office at least three weeks before your party date (this is to ensure enough time to process the application and street closure is required)
Perks of Throwing a Block Party
- Have fun while you see this social gathering bring neighbours closer.
- Neighbours knowing each other better opens the door to neighbourhood organized activities such as spring cleaning, snow shoveling, gardening, etc.
