Registered in 1956, the Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association celebrated its 57th Anniversary in September 2013.
Over the years,the membership has worked hard to build one of the largest Community centers of its kind in the City of Calgary.
Today, the center is primarly used by the members for recreational, cultural and social activities.The membership is pleased to extend an invitation to the general public to use their facilities, when available.
Many Albertans are currently facing extremely challenging times. It’s important that in these moments we support each other and know that we will come out of these moments stronger and more resilient than ever before.
The unprecedented disaster caused by wildfires in northern Alberta is at the centre of our thoughts and we would like to offer our sincere condolences to the residents of Fort McMurray, as they deal with this ongoing emergency situation. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the residents and with the brave first responders.

I know I speak for the residents of Calgary Nose Hill in offering our support to the people whose lives are currently being affected by this fire. All over the province, Albertans are stepping forward with offers of help, providing shelter, clothing and other essentials as well as urgently needed financial contributions.
You can also you can call the regional municipality at 780-762-3636 or the Red Cross at 1-888-350-6070.
If you are worried about someone who might have been affected, Facebook has launched a safety check so residents can let their friends and family know that they're OK.
If you must travel in the region, up-to-date highway conditions are available on Twitter, or on the website511 Alberta .These are difficult times for many in our province, and my thoughts also continue to be with the individuals and families that are facing challenges due to unemployment here at home in Calgary. We know that Albertans are strong, resourceful, generous and resilient and we will get through these tough times together. I would like to remind you all that if you, or someone you know, is struggling with crisis, be it the loss of employment or the emergency situation in Fort McMurray, resources like the Calgary Distress Centre Crisis Line (402-266-4357) and 211 Alberta are available for use.
On May 25th, at 7:00 PM at the Harvest Hills Alliance Church I am holding a Town Hall meeting. At this meeting we will be collecting donations for the Alberta Red Cross in support of the residents in Fort McMurray and we will also be collecting non-perishable food donations for the Calgary Food Bank, in support of our friends and neighbors who are turning to organizations like the food bank in larger numbers due to unemployment in our city. The Calgary Food Bank is also collecting bottled water, pop-top/easy to-open cans of soup, tuna, chili or fruit, diapers and toiletries for the Wood Buffalo Food Bank Association in response to the Fort McMurray fires. You may also bring those items for collection on May 25th.While current emergencies and crisis can at times make it difficult to be positive I remain proud to call Alberta my home and I know that our best days as a province have yet to come.
