Community League Swim

Starting January 7, 2022, Horizon Community League members are able to swim on Fridays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Meadows Community Recreation Centre, 2704 17 St. NW. Bring valid proof of membership for access to complimentary swimming as an HCL member.

Please note that children under age of eight years of age need to be within an arm's reach of a responsible adult. There is a 3:1 ratio for children under the age of eight. This means that each adult may only bring in up to three children under the age of eight & will need to remain within an arm's reach at all times.

To get a community league membership, sign up here.

Virtual Book Club

Join our Horizon Community League Neighborhood-Wide Virtual Book Club.

The Horizon Community League, working with Abundant Community Edmonton, wants to explore:
How do we connect our neighborhoods as a community?
How can we build connections between neighbors?

We are reading The Abundant Community – Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods by John McKnight and Peter Block (Oakland, CA : Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2010).

A neighborhood can

  • raise a child
  • provide security
  • sustain our health
  • secure our income
  • and care for the vulnerable

This book gives voice to an ideal of a beloved community. It reminds us of our power to create a hope-filled life. It assures us that when we join together with our neighbors we are the architects of the future we want to live.

Join the Virtual Book Club and contribute to this important conversation.

Locate a Book

Within the community copies of the book were provided to board members and distributed within the Little Libraries. Requests were made to keep circulating the book after each person read it.

Books are also available from Edmonton Public Library and can be purchased through bookstores.

How would you describe the culture of our neighborhoods, and, in particular, your street or neighborhood?

Have you ever shared, lent, or borrowed something with a neighbor or offered help? Has a neighbor helped you? Can you share a story about your experience.

Do you have ideas about how we could each foster connections in the community?

Card Making Classes

Interested in meeting your neighbours and others in the Community?

Come join us for a card-making session.

card making

Join Virginia and Sarah Hodgins, a mother-daughter team who are both Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and skilled at making cards. Come meet others who enjoy this hobby.

You can use what you have at home if you already have card making supplies, or get information on available project kits. If you have projects you are working on, you can certainly do that, and socialize.

For initial classes card project kits can be purchased from an online store.   You will see a demonstration of how to put them together.

Cost

For these Zoom classes, there is no fee, but to make your own we recommend you purchase a card kit to participate.

You need an ability to access Zoom through a computer and Internet connection.

Schedule

We meet monthly at 7 pm on the third Thursday of each month. Our upcoming schedule is as follows:

- December 16
- January 20
- February 17
- March 17
- April 21
- May 19

Why we use Stampin’ Up! products

Our facilitators love these quality products.  Thousands of card makers use Stampin’ Up! products  because everything co-ordinates – stamps, dies, cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon, embellishments, and ink.

A little about our facilitators

Viriginia and Sarah are a mother - daughter team living in the Summerside neighborhood. We love it in this area and want to meet creative types - just like us.

We both love to share what we love to do, and we hope you learn to love it too!
