Playgroup!

Are you a mom, dad, grandparent or caregiver in the neighbourhood and would like to have a place to go to meet other people and have your children socialize and play with others? Then come and join us at the Winston Heights-Mountview Playgroup held at the Winston Heights-Mountview Community Centre. We have great toys for the kids to play with and this is a great way to get out and meet others. Playgroup is held each Monday morning starting at 10:00 a.m. and lasts to 11:30 a.m (starting up again September 14, 2015).

This is an informal, non-registered playgroup, so no need to sign up, just come out and join us on Monday mornings – we love to meet new families in the neighbourhood!  If you have any questions, or would like more information, please contact Sarah Wiedmer Jarabak at playgroup@winstonheights.ca.

Also, if you’d be interested in having a ‘story time’ during playgroup, please contact me via e-mail. If we have enough interest, I will organize a Calgary Public Library public outreach coordinator to schedule us in for regular story times. They bring books on a specific theme and read a few to the children while guardians quietly visit. The books are even available to be checked out if you bring your library card with you.


POTLUCK!

The third Friday of every month at 6pm, the WHMCA hosts a family-friendly pot luck dinner. All community residents are welcome to attend.  Bring a dish to share and anything special you might like to drink (coffee, tea, juice and water are provided) and come on out to meet your neighbours for some great food and ever better company and conversation.

There are toys and activities for children and it’s a great opportunity to meet new neighbours and friends.

If you’ve not yet made it out to the potluck but would like to attend, please come by.  If you want more information, please contact Christine at president@winstonheights.ca.  To sign up for the Potluck notices that include details of this month’s event(s), please use the eNewsletter sign up at the side of the page and select ‘Potluck’.
