We’re having a Fall Fair!

We’re having a Fall Fair!

By on September 13, 2016

Over the past few years, we have seen the attendance dwindle at our Halloween Party. There are likely a few reasons for it: too many competing Halloween events, kids in the neighbourhood are getting older or perhaps an inability to find that perfect costume, we can’t be sure! So, we’ve decided it’s time for something new. We’re pleased to share that on Saturday, October 15th from 1-3 p.m. we will be hosting our first ever Fall Fair. We’re still working out some of the details, but expect a fun afternoon of games and activities for the family. We’ll let you know more as the details are confirmed!

Canada Day Pancake Breakfast

By on June 21, 2016

19360771176_ec24d0934f_zIt has become an annual tradition and we hope you will join us for our Canada Day Pancake Breakfast. This year’s event will take place from 9-11 a.m. near École la Mission. We will have food, fun and games for the whole family. The cost of breakfast is $4, and we’ll give you a $1 discount if you bring your own plates and utensils. We have limited seating available so it’s a good idea to bring along a lawn chair as well.

Events like these are a great community builder but they don’t run themselves! We are in need of 8-10 volunteers to help out on the day of the event. We will need help with setting up, serving, supervising games and take down at the end of the event. If you’d be willing to spare an hour or two to help out, please let us know. We love offering these events, but without volunteers, we simply won’t be able to keep doing so.

Hope to see you all there as we celebrate this great country of ours!

Heritage Lakes Gets a Little Free Library!

By on August 24, 2015

Heritage Lakes now has our own Little Free Library.  So what is a Little Free Library?

Little Free Library is a worldwide movement to offer free books housed in small containers to members of the local community.  Our Little Free Library is a re-purposed newspaper box that has been given a new look based on the work of renowned Canadian artist Ted Harrison by our volunteers and the talented artists at 4Cats Arts Studio here in St. Albert.

How do I Use our Little Free Library?

Stop by our Little Free Library and take a book or leave a book.  It’s that simple!  You can also promote our Little Free Library by taking a picture and sharing it on social media:

Where Do I Find our Little Free Library?

South entrance to Hodgson Park (by École La Mission).  Across from Hardcastle Place on Heritage Drive.

Thanks to 4Cats Arts Studio, City of St. Albert, St. Albert Public Library for support of the Heritage Lakes Little Free Library! And a special thanks to Stacy Giroux for all of her work to make this happen!
