MCL AGM Saturday, April 21, 2-5 p.m.

Entertainment and neighbourhood connections.

Great things are happening in McCauley. What can we do together to make our terrific community even better?

Community members are invited to celebrate our community and share their ideas about how to make it even better at the McCauley Community League AGM on Saturday, April 21 from 2-5 p.m.

This year the AGM is being held at the Edmonton Intercultural Centre, the former McCauley School at 9538 107 Avenue. This is intentional as we want to highlight the many efforts underway to connect with diverse residents in our neighbourhood.

The programming and meeting spaces at the Centre are terrific assets for McCauley and its presence in our neighbourhood is a catalyst for helping to bring community members together. You will learn about the many activities currently in progress to connect with and include diverse residents in community life

In addition to reporting on the MCL`s activities with its partners over the past year, there will be entertainment and you will also have a chance to have your say on recommendations from the City to address parking problems in McCauley.

Consider becoming a board member or being on a committee. Be part of the great things happening in McCauley.

Phil is President of the McCauley Community League.
