Riverbend Gears up for Summer

Community League Day, gardening and flag football all on the agenda

By Miep Raedschelders, President, Riverbend Community League

I’m excited to report that Brookside Hall has been restored and is once again serving the needs of our community! We look forward to welcoming league members, neighbours and friends to tour this great space on Community League Day, September 16, 2023.

We owe a debt of gratitude to all those who supported the fundraising efforts that made the restoration and security upgrades of Brookside Hall possible. Thank you to the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues and the South West Area Council leagues for your generosity and dedication to furthering the community league movement.

RCL will present flag football at Brookside Rinks this fall. Please check edmontonflag.com for registration info for children and youth ages 4-17.

Visit the Brookside pop-up garden and the Brander Community Garden to marvel and learn about the food you can grow! There are opportunities to get involved, so please stop by the Brander Community Garden on Saturday mornings or email us for more info! Speaking of healthy lifestyles, registration for summer Hatha Yoga with Bev, at the Riverbend Community Centre, is now open. All levels of experience are welcome!

RCL is pleased to provide portable washroom access at each of the four main neighbourhood parks this summer. We are thrilled that Green Shacks are back to keep our kiddos entertained and energized! Schedules for the Green Shack are posted on our website.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and check out riverbendonline.ca to keep on top of what is happening in our community! Music, food, Canada Day celebrations, summer events and Community League Day info will be updated regularly so your family can be in the know about all there is to do in our neighbourhood and great city!

We are looking for volunteers to help plan social events for the community. If you are interested in meeting other community-minded people, engaging and having fun, please reach out to info@riverbendonline.ca!
