Volunteer Opportunity – SECLA Rep

Capilano Community League is seeking a Capilano resident to represent it on the board of directors of the South East Community Leagues Association (SECLA).

SECLA, which consists of 11 community leagues in central southeast Edmonton, seeks to strengthen community networks by providing a forum for collaboration, discussion and the sharing of information.  It also provides funding for the Southeast Voice community newspaper.  The board typically meets the fourth Thursday of each month for two hours.

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please contact Kris Cramer at 780-720-9003.

Something for Seniors . . .

Here’s a way to raise the profile of seniors in Edmonton.

Dez Melenka with CTV News is looking for ideas for a new segment called On Your Street. “I am looking to do stories that showcase your community: events, cool buildings, big changes, that kind of thing. If you know someone who does something cool, has an amazing yard, fun painted house, is known to help people … I want to know so I can share their story.

This will also be a segment to share concerns: parking, stop signs, speed limits, any problems or concerns that you and your community may have.”

To suggest ideas, email dez.melenka@bellmedia.ca.
