COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

This is your invitation to participate in a wide variety of activities in and around your own community. Whether you are trying something new, or sharing your skills with others, these programs are a fun way to get active while getting to know individuals in your local community. While some programs may require a community league membership and/or a participation or registration fee, others only require your enthusiastic participation.

In addition to the list below, you may find this Resources for Community Recreation Network - SW2 - Public, prepared by our Neighbourhood Resource Coordinator to be helpful.

As well, the City of Edmonton prepares several Program Guides. These guides list the recreation, community, and school programs offered by the City of Edmonton. Included on the Program Guide webpage are: Accessible and Low Cost or Free Recreation Guides - that are prepared seasonally.

If you have an idea for a Lendrum Community League - Community Program, or if you are interested in the position of Program Coordinator, please contact: LCL President:   Gary Goulden at 780.450.0927 or president@lendrum.org

Please contact the person in charge of the specific program to confirm current meeting locations, times and costs.
