Volunteer request: Friends of Connaught School Fundraiser
Friends of Connaught Community School Association will be hosting their second casino fundraiser on December 14 & 15, 2016 and they're looking for your help! 100% of funds go toward supporting Connaught School at the behest of parent council.
The first casino demonstrated great benefits to our students, including the robotics program. For example, the school was able to fund 10 lego robot sets to give students in Grades 3-6 hands-on programming instruction.
More info and sign-up lists available here.
Update: Green Line progresses with the Beltline in mind
The BNA is pleased to hear that the Green Line Team’s newly completed detailed evaluation of the Beltline alignments found the 12 Avenue underground option ranked highest amongst the alternatives of 10 Avenue surface and underground, and 12 Avenue surface.
12 Avenue underground alignment was an option that was nearly eliminated just over a month ago until the BNA, along with an overwhelming number of community stakeholders, successfully advocated for the City to bring it back on the table for further investigation.
Read more about the BNA's advocacy and the work ahead. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations of Calgarians to make sure we do this right.
As always, don't hesitate to reach out via email, @yycbeltline or facebook. We love to hear from you!
