LCL meeting Nov 6 at 7PM at the Community Hall

Everyone is Welcome!
To have items on the Agenda contact the Secretary at secretary@lendrum.org

The Lendrum Community League would like to thank Luke Falkenstein for the great job he has done over the many years of informing Lendrum of events through his messages on the Lendrum Sign. We wish him well with his new endeavors! Keep eating your veggies Luke!

We welcome long time Lendrum resident Betty Chan to the position and thank her for coming forward to volunteer!

We had a beautiful fall morning for the annual Lendrum Turkey Trot and a wonderful turnout of enthusiastic families. The turkey must have been moving very quickly because no one caught him on the 3 km or 5 km (5.6 km) routes and so we had to give away a frozen one! The good news is we will be able to chase him again next year!

We have special appreciation to Safeway for the generous gift card donation and to Tim Hortons for the muffins and donuts, you are a great part of our community!

And thank you to Xanthe for being the Event Host for the Turkey Trot!

Starting September 5, 2017, Route 55 will continue to serve the neighbourhoods of Malmo and Lendrum. ETS will also introduce two new routes, Route 318 and 319, which will operate every 60 minutes during weekday midday and Saturdays.

Advocating to keep the Lendrum Bus Route was very much a multi-generational team effort! Great job Lendrumers and Lendrumites!

These project pitches could be for a community event, a new program you want to offer, or even to help build new connections with neighbours or groups. These projects must be completed in 2017.
