Saturday was an amazing Community League Day for Evansdale Community League.
Aside from the 25 C temperatures, for the second year running Evansdale combined soccer and program registrations with free jumpy arenas, horse-drawn wagon rides and free hot dogs and refreshments for anyone who came. More is better as Evansdale is learning. By combining soccer, Tae Kwon Do, belly dance and basketball registrations with the Community League Day party, numbers appear to be up in all corners. Evansdale holds its Community League Day celebrations on the second Saturday of September because sports registrations have been planned for that date years in advance. This means we miss the official community league day, but nevertheless it was a very good day!
Next week the official Community League Day
swings into action as more than 100 leagues host events across Edmonton. The official kick-off is Thursday at 10 am at the EFCL offices as we engage the Mayor and some councillors in an out-sized game of crocket through a course consisting of 154 community league signs.
I have the honour of attending Rosslyn's 50th Anniversary Party on Saturday, September 17, but will be attending other events during the day.
Good luck with your events!
President & District B Rep.
