Famoso Fundraiser - July 14 & Aug 18
For the love of community ... Join us at the Magrath Famoso on July 14 and August 18! All day long, come help us support our community. All profits for the day will be directed to the construction of the new South Terwillegar Park Skating Rink. See you there!
Nellie Carlson Playground
Hi there neighbour, my name is Cory and I am the fundraising coordinator for the Nellie Carlson Playground, which will be located right next to the brand new Nellie Carlson School at 4110 MacTaggart Drive.
I have some exciting news to share; we have raised over $500k for this project, and are now within $40,000 to get this playground built. Even more exciting, if we are able to get this final $40,000 by the end of June we will be able to have the construction started in July for the playground to be built for September, right in time for the kids to enjoy it when they start their year at Nellie Carlson School.
I fully acknowledge that timing is not great. We all know what is going on in the economy, and many of us are hurting. That being said, this is the 4th park that Terwillegar has taken on over the last few years, and we are so close to the finish line... I know we can come together as a community if everybody pitches in.
If you would like to donate, please download the donation form and make your cheque out to "City of Edmonton" and reference: "Terwillegar Community League Parkland Development Donation".
You can mail it to us at:

In addition, we have recognition options available for donations of $1,000 and above. It is the perfect way to pay tribute to a loved one or otherwise leave your family's mark on the park. If you are interested, please give me a call personally at the number below.
For more details about the school visit the Nellie Carlson page on the EPSB website.
Let's get this last playground built, and thanks very much for your consideration.

Host a BBQ, TCL Will Buy The Food
The Terwillegar Community League strives to promote a friendly community through a variety of programs. With summer slowly creeping up on us, the TCL and the Magrath Save On Foods are partnering once again to get you the free food you need for a great neighbourhood barbeque.
TCL members can sign up to host a neighbourhood barbeque. The signup requires that you have your date picked out, the address of where the barbeque will be hosted, your contact and membership information. There is a limited number of free BBQ packages, and this year we will be awarding them on a first come – first serve basis.
Organizers who are selected to host the free barbeques will need to complete the registration form, including signing up at least seven other households to take part in the event. Remember that if you are using a public space, you will need a permit from the City.
Then, all you have to do is pick up your food package at the Magrath Save On Foods and you’re ready to go! Be active in your community, get to know your neighbours, and have fun.
Visit our Neighbourhood BBQ page for all the details and information on how you can participate.
