The Deer Ridge Community Association’s Annual Family Winter Skate was a tremendous success.
With Mother Nature contributing the perfect day ( +10 C), we had a minimum of 150 people attend over the day. Our best attendance ever.
We gave out 280 Hot Dogs, 150 bottles of water, 2 full containers of Hot Chocolate and a container of Coffee.
Thank you to our Fantastic Volunteers who again kept the event moving and all who attended very happy and well fed.
Special Thanks to
-Lanis for organizing the the Hot Chocolate/coffee from Starbucks.
-Christina Steed [of Calgary-Fish Creek MLA office] for donating some of the bottled water and the condiments. Also free Hockey pucks and blow up balls-giveaways for the kids.
-Deer Ridge Community Association for donating the the hotdogs, buns and all the support, and miscellaneous items needed to put it all together.
I would like to thank the following volunteers who donated their time and efforts on the day, on the ground, to ensure the people of the the Deer Ridge Community enjoyed their time at this event.
Lanis, Brandon, Gertrud, Wendell, Andrea, Troy, Dave, Kim, Brent, Bob, (Cydney & Collette)
Without the help of the above volunteers, we could never be this successful and you are greatly appreciated.
I have included a couple of pics.
Thank you again to all,

Deer Ridge CA looks forward to organizing a community litter clean-up event next year in 2022. In the meantime, as individuals, any day is a great to get outside and remove litter from neighbourhood greenspaces. Maps of greenspaces can be downloaded here.
Litter Cleanup Kits (TLC Kits) are now available. Each kit contains enough supplies (gloves and garbage bags, etc) for up to 6 people in your household.
You may contact Deer Ridge Community Association to have a kit dropped off at your residence (while supplies last).
Visit calgary.ca/tlckits for additional information and locations to pick-up kits or contact 311.
