TWIN BROOKS Community League
Fellow residents of Twin Brooks,
The holiday season is fast approaching, and as many of you are getting ready to host family and friends over the coming weeks, I want to update you on several important topics in our community.
The Twin Brooks Community Centre is thriving with facility rentals, community based programs, and outdoor activities.
Recently, many children and families enjoyed our 1st "Breakfast with Santa" at the TBCL Community Centre. It was a full house, and many residents encouraged us to host this event again next year. Hats off to our newest board member, Ann Johnson for originating and organizing this amazing event!
We are fortunate as a community to have a NHL-size outdoor rink for children, families, and recreational sport teams to enjoy.
Without the donation of time from all of our fabulous volunteers and board members, our community would not be able to enjoy these amenities and events. "Thank you" for your commitment to our league!
New TBCL Board of Director Members: Welcome!
In October, we held our Annual General Meeting at the Twin Brooks Community Centre.
The meeting was well attended, and new board members joined our team.
I want to welcome the following community members elected to our board:
Ann Johnson - Social Director
Alice Ou - Program Director
Thank you ladies for stepping forward to donate your time to our fabulous community!
The Holiday Season & A New Year:
Our Twin Brooks Community League Board of Directors will continue to work hard as we turn our calendars over to 2019.
The Playground Development Committee, Seniors Initiative Fund Program, and our Community League Soccer Program will make major strides in the New Year.
On behalf of our board, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas, or if you are celebrating another holiday, may you experience love, peace, and prosperity, sharing time with friends and family this season.
All the very Best in 2019!
Our vibrant and diverse community of Twin Brooks is located at the confluence of the Whitemud Creek and the Blackmud Creek, hence the origin of the name Twin Brooks.
Bordering the MacTaggart Nature Sanctuary, land was annexed by the City of Edmonton in the 1980's for the Twin Brooks sub-division, with the majority of the residential construction occurring in the 1990's - 2000's.
The culturally diverse and rich fabric of Twin Brooks is home to an estimated population of 6,600 residents, many of whom have contributed to our community to enhance a family- focused, safe, and active neighborhood.
We are fortunate to have George P. Nicholson Elementary School, Alberta Health Services public health centre, YMCA childcare, and the amazing NEW Twin Brooks Community League Centre within our boundaries.
Opening the doors in April, 2016, the Twin Brooks Community League Centre is the hub of diverse activities and programs developed to meet the needs and interests of our community members.
The volunteer members of the Twin Brooks Community League Board of Director's are continuously working hard to improve the quality of life for families and individuals whom call Twin Brooks "home".
Minor league soccer, the Seniors Initiative Fund (SIF), yoga, zumba, arts & crafts, fitness classes, and Nature Stewardship, are just some of the programs the league has developed to offer as community-based activities.
We look forward to meeting you and invite you to join us at the TBCL Centre throughout the year
