Everyone is Welcome on Community League Day!

Join us on Saturday, September 15, 2018, for Community League Day, celebrating community leagues and community league spirit across our city!

Community League Day is an annual city-wide celebration that brings community and volunteers together to make great things happen. Community leagues host free events like classic car shows, pancake breakfasts, BBQs and corn roasts to bring current community members together in Edmonton neighbourhoods while encouraging new members to get involved.

Since annual community league memberships expire August 31, it’s also a chance for community league members to see the neighbours they haven’t seen for a while, to catch up and get their memberships for the upcoming year.

Edmonton neighbourhoods come alive to celebrate Edmonton’s unique community league system and the hard-working volunteers involved with it.

Come out, invite and meet your neighbours, pick up your new league membership and join the fun! Everyone is welcome.

For more information and a full list of Community League Day events, visit the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues at efcl.org, and share your CL Day experience on social media by using the hashtag #yegCLDay18.

Jasmin Joe is the Communications Officer with the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues.
