Springtime in
Allendale



Allendale is a proud, wonderful community on the south side of Edmonton that is close to Whyte Avenue, The River Valley , and The University of Alberta.
Many fine Edmontonians live in this long standing, mature neighbourhood, and have built a great atomosphere to reside in and a well-involved community league.

Summer Edition of the Allendale Advisor
Available at the end of June


The current incarnation of the Allendale Advisor is based on the notion that it will be more than a monthly flyer – rather, that it will be issued less frequently but contain more information. We hope that people would take the time to pick it up and leaf through it rather than pitching it straight into the recycle bin.
We’ve changed the distribution of the newsletter from Canada Post to using youth from the neighbourhood who are paid directly by the ACL.
With a print run of 1350 copies, each edition of the newsletter costs roughly $1500 to print and another $150 to distribute.
We’ve been averaging 3-4 newsletter per year. A small portion of the cost is offset with advertising but it currently does not amount to much.
We believe that with enough community and business advertising support, we can produce a worthwhile community newsletter.

What's Shakin' at the Greenshack?

The Green Shack Summer Playground Program is back and better than ever at Allendale Park!
A big thank you to the Allendale Community League Board for providing the extra funds needed to increase the 106 Green Shack Program to 5 days a week!
Green Shack is a FREE, DROP-IN program oriented towards children aged 6-12. If you have young ones under the age of 6, you are welcome to attend with them as they must be supervised by a parent or caregiver at all times. The kids play games and sports, as well as enjoy crafts, music, and drama. There are great surprises, special events, and plenty of fun in store.
It’s a great way for children to enjoy a number of activities out in the wonderful summer weather AND meet other people their age who live in the community. The program is even available on rainy days and will only be cancelled in cases of inclement weather.

WHERE: Allendale Community Hall and Park at 6330 105A Street

WHEN: 2:30 to 6 pm,

Monday – Friday beginning July 4th until August 25th, 2016

Garden Project Update

Over the last 3 years, the Garden Enhancement Committee has been providing updates on the Allendale Garden Recreational Enhancement project. We are slowly progressing with the project and are at the stage of presenting concept plans for the design to the city. At this point, we would like input from the community on two proposed options.

Did Someone Say ART Contest?

Want a shot at cover art for the newsletter?

The communications team at the Allendale Community League wants the community to have a shot at making artwork for our newsletter.
There is not a money prize, just fame. The contest is open to all Allendale Community League members, and their families. If you want to enter, and are not a member, while here's your chance to join. The chosen artwork submissions will be decided on by the executive of the board, but with great influence from our twitter followers. That's right, you will have to follow us on twitter to enter and be able to follow the contest along.

Scona Pool - Why we need to be vocal

Scona Pool is aging and the City has indicated it WILL CLOSE the next time major maintenance is required. Currently there is no funding to replace the pool. The City is redeveloping the site and is required to submit 2 concept plans to Council in the fall. Currently funding has only been approved for redeveloping the parkland (yes, almost everything surrounding Strathcona High School is City land).
City administration will take two concepts, one with a rec facility, one without to council this autumn. The only opportunity for the community to continue to have a pool is contingent on council choosing the rec facility concept.
