Donate your empties to help revitalize our greenspaces
Donating your bottles and cans this new year can go a long way in helping to revitalize greenspaces in your community.
Oh MY Oakridge, a committee of the Oakridge Community Association that is focused on this initiative, has created an account with Skip The Depot. This app will not only pick up your empties from your front step, but you can also choose to donate your refund to Oh MY Oakridge.
Oh My Oakridge – Revitalizing our community greenspaces
After a group of local residents spent the last six months developing the concept of Oh MY Oakridge, it has become an official committee of the Oakridge Community Association, as of Nov. 16, 2021.
Oh MY Oakridge has a goal to revitalize and connect all greenspaces in Oakridge to create a more desirable and livable neighbourhood. The committee aims to provide a range of local opportunities for residents to recreate and interact.
The committee is presently focused on raising funds to develop a series of community engagement sessions throughout 2022, in an effort to create a 10-year master plan for the community’s greenspaces. For more information, email email@example.com.
Christmas Light Tour
As we head into December and the New Year, why not put on your walking boots and check out the many Christmas light displays on homes in Oakridge this year.
The community has certainly “lit up” as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. We were hard-pressed to choose between the many awesome light displays on our streets this year, but these five stood out as the “best.” Try out our walk and see if you agree.
Local Library Tour
The onset of November means colder days and longer nights, and it also signifies the unofficial start to winter in Calgary. And that means it’s time to find a good book or two to curl up beside a fire with. Fortunately, Oakridge has a variety of local libraries around the community to provide you with a variety of selections to choose from. So before the snow flies and the temperature drops, we encourage you to get out and do the “Local Library Loop” – a 2.5-kilometre tour of your community that will take you past five local libraries and ensure that you can find something to read this winter.
