2022 Casino Volunteers Needed

CHCA is looking for a variety of volunteers to help at our Aug 9 and 10 2022 Casino at Cowboys. No experience necessary! Come out and meet your neighbors, recieve a complimentary meal and snacks and help CHCA raise needed funds.

Email president@crescentheightsyyc.ca to sign up now and if you have any questions.

Casino fundraising dollars constitute restricted funds for the community association: our prescribed Use of Proceeds is limited to specific expenditures, but these uses free up other financial resources to fund programs and initiatives, perhaps more important than ever as we emerge from the Covid-19 era.
Casino funds give us leverage and allow CHCA to support you and your family’s enjoyment of our community by: 

  • adding artwork to our streets and parks;
  • organizing programs at our community hall for children and seniors;
  • staging outdoor music concerts in our parks;
  • organizing stampede breakfast and other engagement events such as plant exchanges;
  • supporting our community garden;
  • investing in equipment for our outdoor rink maintenance; 
  • revitalizing our green spaces;
  • investing in our hall to improve its functionality and attractiveness to renters;
  • organizing the community and pathway and river clean-ups; and
  • investing in our website and information systems to improve community communication.

Sign Up HERE or email president@crescentheightsyyc.ca if you have any questions.

“Last Generation” Mini Galleries Launch Event Sat. March 12

Mini Galleries in Rotary Park welcome “Last Generation” in March-April

Opening Event Sat March 12, 12-2pm in Rotary Park

Get ready for deeper conversations about our planet, and some digital content to bring it alive.

The Urban Society for Aboriginal Youth (USAY) brings “Last Generation” to Rotary Park’s mini galleries in March and April.

“The theme of the artwork is Indigenous youth’s perspective on climate change,” says LeAnne Ireland, USDAY’s executive director. “The works are created by Indigenous youth and will showcase a diversity of perspectives on climate change, from traditional ways of the healing the earth, to people fleeing the planet in hopes of survival, to apocalyptic views of the earth taking over.”

The pieces may have a ‘darker’ idea of the what the earth might look to provoke conversations about climate change, and how we might all work together to save our planet.

“Indigenous people often view themselves as stewards of the land,” says Ireland. “It’s important we lead conversations about climate change issues and bring about action through our voices.”

The mini-gallery installation will also be paired with USAY’s IndigiTRAILS app, allowing for digital content to be attached to each piece. USAY has a website that provides information about IndigiTRAILS, you can check it out: usay.ca/indigitrails – the app will be available to community members on March 12th.
