THANK YOU - ICE RINK CREW


March 2018 - As the ice rink season comes to a close, we want to say a big thank you to our ice rink crew. These guys put in a lot of time making and maintaining the rinks as well as clearing walks.
Thanks for a great season Ben, Gary, Ira, Adam, Bryn, Jared, John & Darcy.


LENDRUM PARK NOTES


September 2017 - Wasn't Lendrum Park a busy place this summer? The fields, the playground, the courts, the hall, the paths and the berry bushes. Thanks to the many volunteers inspired by the example of Harvey Guhl and his crew, our park is a glowing green gem at the heart of our neighbourhood.

A big thank you to the following Lendrum residents who volunteered a total of 75 hours improving Lendrum Park in evening workbees from June to September 1st:
Art Bohnet, Joe Eustace, Greg Falkenstein, Peggy Folinsbee, John Folinsbee, Bonnie Herring-Cooper, 'Monty' Montgomery, Pam Smith and Vera Watson.


Another big thank you to the 36 U of A students who volunteered a total of 72 hours labour on their 'day of service', September 1st. Hosting so many volunteers was possible only because of the Lendrum residents who supervised them:
Art Bohnet, Coleen and Alfred Falk, Harvey Guhl, Bonnie Herring-Cooper, Gerard Masse, Gord Okamura, Jennifer Purves.


The tasks completed complemented the work done in weekly workbees: edging, weeding and mulching ornamental beds; cleaning nest boxes and weeding the natural area; sweeping the gutters of the parking lot; cleaning the paths and decorative pots by the hall.
We had more U of A students than ever and throughout the summer, more volunteers donated their time and skills to keep our park looking great. Please tell them "thanks" when you see them.

LENDRUM NATURALIZED AREA


September 2017 - Maybe I'm wearing rose-coloured glasses, but it seemed to me that there may have been slightly fewer thistles than in past years?? Let us hope.
There were lots of birds interested in and occupying the nest boxes again this year. And the really big exciting news is many of the holes in our bee hotels were occupied! Also the little patch of nettles provided essential habitat for red admiral butterfly larvae. There was lots of colour in among the grasses as our native plants seem to be thriving.
Once again we had a bumper crop of saskatoon berries and lots of Lendrum folks were out picking and enjoying them.
