Community Association Website

I spent most of the weekend working on a brand new website for Hudson Bay Park | Mayfair | Kelsey Woodlawn Community Association after the last one kind of disappeared.  I used WordPress.com and then bought a domain name for it.  The idea is that WordPress.com is really easy to use and eventually someone else will be taking care of it.

Take a look, let me know what you think.  There is still some work to be done on it but I am always open to suggestions.

AGM for the Mayfair, Hudson Bay Park, and Kelsey-Woodlawn Community Association

Our annual AGM is on Thursday Sept 27, 5:30 at Henry Kelsey rinkAll residents in Mayfair, Hudson Bay Park and Kelsey-Woodlawn are invited.

Come enjoy food, refreshments, bouncers for the kids all at the Henry Kelsey rink!

Food starts at 5:30

AGM starts at 6:30 – Community programs, events, services, safety, chance to meet others in our neighbourhoods. Have a voice in your community.

I love reading it because the phrase “bouncers for the kids” brings up a great mental image.

For those of you who do live in these neighbourhoods, you need to come out.  Mayfair and Kelsey-Woodlawn have their challenges and a vibrant and active community association is part of the solution.

Mayfair – Hudson Bay Park – Kelsey Woodlawn Facebook Group

There is an active Facebook group for Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair, and the Kelsey Woodlawn community association.  If you are a resident of one of these three neighbourhoods, you may want to join.

There are a variety of good discussions online.  As the group intro says.

Hello and welcome. This community page represents the neighbourhoods of Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair and Kelsey/Woodlawn in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Our group is for everyone who lives in our neighbourhoods, as well as those who might want to join for information on a variety of community topics. Discussions might be about upcoming events in our neighbourhoods, concerns in the community, or other community-related topics.

Have some plants to give away? Need daycare? Great new shop recently opened up nearby? Concerned about something going on? Want to volunteer for your Community Association and help make our neighbourhoods a better place for everyone?

We like to keep discussions as civil as possible, while still allowing for differences of opinion to be discussed. We’re not always going to like what others have to say, but if we can remain respectful while expressing ourselves, we can all have our say and likely learn a thing or two from one another.

Take care of yourselves, your neighbours, and your neighbourhood.

Encouraging news for the west side

According to a Saskatoon Police news release.

The two girls, ages nine and 12, reported being followed by a man driving a white extended-cab truck as they walked in the area of 33rd Street and Avenue P around 11:39 p.m., police said in a news release.

“At one point the suspicious male got out of the truck but when the girls confronted him he drove off. They sought assistance at a nearby residence and called police,” the release said.

The girls described the man as in his 30s and wearing a baseball cap. No further description was available.

Police recommend people walk in pairs or groups, stay in well-populated and well-lit areas, be aware of suspicious activity, avoid approaching strange vehicles if someone stops and attempts to talk, and report suspicious activity to parents or police.

In other words according to the release, “it isn’t safe for people to out at night on the west side”.   Wonderful.
