Welcome to the Laurier Heights Community League!
We are located at 14405 85 Avenue.
LH has a new Lending Library!
Barbara Stratton-Cramer writes: It was in Canmore that my family and I first saw a lending library and experienced the charm and warmth of the idea. We wanted to bring the idea to two communities that are special to both my own family and my extended family: Crestwood and Laurier. This became particularly important during the pandemic.
John Albert built the Laurier lending library and Marco Saccomani built the Crestwood one. Each of these talented craftsmen created two different and totally unique looks, creatively designed for the outdoor space for which they were intended. My family dedicated these libraries to our parents who, were our first teachers and who instilled within us a love of books.
Thank you so much Barbara and family for your generous, thoughtful and already much loved Laurier lending library! Thank you also to john od Finesse Painting (firstname.lastname@example.org, 780-436-4342) who did such an incredible job of designing, building and installing such a perfect fit for our hall!
If you haven’t check it out yet, given or received a book from it, be sure to make a visit next time you’re out and about the neighbourhood!
PS – And in case you’re wondering, the first book contribution was “The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde” at its installation of St. Patrick’s Day, 2021!
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, we are committed to doing our part to keep our families, friends and neighbours as safe and healthy as possible. It is therefore of utmost importance to us that we take seriously our role in keeping our community safe.
As such, we have made the decision to cancel all Laurier Heights Community League activities and events for the time being.
This is in keeping with the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues (EFCL) who are recommending that leagues exercise an “abundance of caution” by cancelling all nonessential gatherings.
In addition, we have closed access to our community hall spaces until further notice.
We are committed to supporting community endeavours, and at this time, we feel this is the wisest option for the greater good of our community and Edmontonians as a whole.
We are monitoring the situation, and will continue to look to the CDC, WHO, public health agencies, all levels of government and the EFCL for guidelines in handling this pandemic.
We look forward to offering all of our community programming again, hopefully in the near future.
Our board remains available and our block connectors are coordinating efforts to provide assistance particularly for our seniors, those in ‘isolation’ and other vulnerable neighbours.
Please feel free to reach out anytime via phone, the Nextdoor app or email.
In the meantime, let’s continue to do what our community does so well: Caring for one another, remaining calm, finding creative ways to make the most of situations and practising kind and generous neighbourliness.
We wish you all good health and peace of mind.
