The air quality index over the next day is high. As much as we would love to have everyone come out and show their love for the community why helping to keep it clean we want everyone to be safe. We hope to reschedule this event.
Sherry Wallace from the City of Edmonton was able to join us at last nights AGM and Soccer Registration to talked about the upcoming changes happening to Lorelei and Beaumaris with Neighbourhood Renewal. There are lots of things involved with this project from roads being repaved, curbs, lights, and parks. Feb 28 There will be a Visions Confirmation and Community Options Event at Lorelei School that is drop in from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
