Boyle Street Community League Update

A Time of Beginnings

Happy New Year and Gung Hay Fat Choy from your community league! The next few months will be a time of beginnings.

The League will be conducting our membership drive as we distribute copies of the new Boyle Street Walking Map. We’ll be offering you our famous membership deal: financially free, but with lots of opportunity to become involved.

Along with that, we’ll be constructing and premiering our updated website, and continuing to be available on our Facebook page. We are also looking to partner with local businesses to get our information (and the Walking Map) out into the community. So look for our logo on distribution points around Boyle Street.

Monday is the first day of each week. On Monday afternoons, Pui Yum brings Chinese karaoke and dance to the Willow Room, and in the evenings our Native Drumming group is back in action in the Evergreen Room. We’ll feature other days of the week in upcoming updates, and look on our website and “Facebook“ for some program profiles in the upcoming months.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and this space for notices about a new family fun day, and in March, we’ll be able to share the details of our York Moments film premiere as part of a spring film event. We’ll also be partnering with Intercultural Dialogues on more than one event located in Boyle Street, so stay tuned for notices about that in March and April (hint: Mother’s Day may be featured…details to come!)

Last but not at all least, our casino comes up on February 23 and 24. If you are interested in volunteering, please leave us a message at (780) 422-5758 or (780) 426-9264, or e-mail You know how casinos work: two shifts, day and evening, and several roles. They’re fun, and you get fed during your shift. We need you!

And of course, if you have a program you want to see happening in Boyle Street, get in touch, and help us make it happen. Because the heart of Boyle Street is our people, and that means you too!
