A Community of Incredible People

Dear friends,

Happy summer! Like so many of you, I’m a big fan of this season, and I’m looking forward to taking advantage of warm weather and long, sunny days to spend lots of time out in the community. I’m especially looking forward to connecting with you all at events throughout Boyle Street and McCauley. 

We all know that these opportunities for connection couldn’t happen without the dedication and hard work of so many of you. I’m so proud to see you all continue to show up for each other—not just once in a while, but throughout the year. 

I’m thinking of community builders like the fabulous Rosalie Gelderman, who recently won an Alberta Seniors Service Award for her nearly four decades of advocacy for seniors in our province. It was an honour to join her and her family and friends for the celebration. 

I’m thinking of Dan Glugosh, who once again dealt with the most adverse of conditions in an unpredictable winter, but managed to maintain the most beautiful ice in town down at the McCauley Rink.

I’m thinking of all the people who I’ve met who are doing so much to keep Chinatown vibrant – from the incredibly dedicated group of young folks bringing new energy and ideas to the community, to the elders who helped to build the Chinatown we have today and are still continuing this work. 

And I’m thinking of people like those who keep the McCauley and Boyle Street Community Leagues going strong, and all those who volunteer so much of their time. 

I wish I could name everyone who I know does so much to keep our neighbourhoods going. Know that we see you and appreciate you.

I look forward to continuing to connect with you, and to celebrating all the ways in which our community comes together. Whether it’s on housing, health care, education, or any issues that are top of mind for you, I want to hear from you. Please reach out, and know that as always, I’m here. 

Take good care of yourselves and each other.
