Lendrum Craft Group


Lendrum Craft Group

We have recently re-started our indoor gatherings, after meeting outdoors in various parks whenever the weather permitted during the past year and a half.

All Lendrum residents are welcome to join us. We will be following all the required Covid protocols, including proof of double vaccination, masking and maintaining 2m. distance between participants.

We have been collecting $2.00 (or more), which helps to offset the costs of using the hall. We will bring our own lunches for now, but look forward to getting back to sharing a potluck in future.

We are a diverse group of women and men who enjoy a variety of craft activities including: crochet, knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, painting, needlework, wood carving, card-making, mending and sketching. We generally meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month with the exception of holidays. We meet for 5 hours (11:00 - 4:00pm)

Vital Signs Report - 2021


Vital Signs 2021

Edmonton Vital Signs® is an annual check-up conducted by the Edmonton Community Foundation, in partnership with Edmonton Social Planning Council, to measure how the community is doing. The City of Edmonton’s Neighbourhood Services is fortunate to be part of the Vital Signs Advisory Team.

The annual report focuses on specific topics related to community needs and is a valuable resource for ourselves and community groups. This year’s report focuses on Making Ends Meet, providing insight into the neighbourhoods we support and the impacts on citizens.

Here are just some of the facts the report uncovers:
  • Prior to the pandemic, 12.9% of Edmontonians lived in poverty. Single parents and single adults made up the majority. Working age single adults are especially financially insecure.
  • 81.2% of Edmontonians making minimum wage are 20 years of age or older.
  • A single person working full time at minimum wage is living below the low-income threshold.
  • Women, Indigenous People, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ2S + individuals, and visible minorities are among the most likely to work in low-paying, precarious jobs.
  • 63% of Senior women in Canada are living in poverty.
You can access the full report here.

New LCL Program Initiative

Learning from One Other: Lendrum Community Information & Activity Sessions

Lendrum has an abundance of talented and knowledge residents. The LCL would like to hold regular community information/activity sessions on a variety of topics. Our goal is that each presenter will be someone from our very own community. If you have special knowledge on or a passion for a specific topic/activity (finances, health and wellness topics, hobbies, recreational activities etc.) and would like to share this with our community in an information session, contact our Abundant Community Lendrum and Age-Friendly Lendrum Coordinator, Lisa Vaughn, at 780-918-6678 or email seniors@lendrum.org to indicate your interest.
