Community-Based Budgeting

From: Keren Tang <> Date: Fri, May 5, 2023 at 4:58 PM Subject: You're Invited: Community-Based Budgeting 2023! Hello everyone,

Our Ward Karhiio Community-Based Budgeting project has launched for 2023, and we are once again looking for community members to help us decide how to spend part of our Ward budget, and share their ideas for resident-led projects that improve our communities (Check out this recent feature in the Globe and Mail on last year's experience). Our first introductory workshop this year is happening next Saturday May 13th and we invite you to join us and help us spread the word! We have content below that we would appreciate you sharing/forwarding, and we have also attached a poster. This is a great opportunity to bring to life small ideas that you have always had in a collaborative process. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out, and thank you for your support.


The Community-Based Budgeting project is back again for its 2nd year in Ward Karhiio with Councillor Keren Tang in partnership with Edmonton Public Library and Beta City YEG! Do you have an idea for a small action or project that might spark conversation or positive change in your neighbourhood? Join us in-person on May 13th for Community-Based Budgeting Workshop #1 - Brainstorm!

We have $20,000 in total funding available for 10-15 projects this year! We invite you to share your ideas that help make our public spaces more enjoyable, welcoming, or comfortable, and build pride in the places where we live, work, and play. Projects must be located in Ward Karhiio to strengthen the connection between people and these places. Check out our website for some project examples!

This process will be interactive and iterative, and in the end YOU will help us decide how to spend part of our office budget.

The Ward Karhiio team is holding the first of two Community-Based Budgeting Workshops on Saturday May 13th from 3:30-5:00PM at the Edmonton Public Library Mill Woods Branch. Through this workshop series, you will have a chance to brainstorm and develop projects, and connect with other do-ers and champions in your neighbourhood.

Join us at our upcoming workshops - click below to RSVP and learn more!

Workshop #1 Brainstorm: May 13, 2023 from 3:30 PM-5:00 PM at the Mill Woods Library Branch (2610 Hewes Way NW)

Workshop #2 Develop & Design: June 3, 2023 from 3:30 PM-5:00 PM at the Mill Woods Library Branch (2610 Hewes Way NW)

From: Alberta Team Handball Federation <> Sent: February 15, 2023 2:53 PM To: undisclosed-recipients: Subject: Team Handball Sr League Finals

The Alberta Team Handball Federation would like to invite you and those in your community to come out and watch our Sr. League Finals on March 5th for free.

If you have never seen a game before, this is an opportunity to watch former pro players, current and past national team members for both men and women play for the ATHF championship. If it is anything like it was last year, you're in for some high intensity and physically demanding games.

You can use (this link) to view the time and teams for each game (which will be updated when the final games are completed this weekend).

There is a concession on site, and it is easiest to access the facility heading eastbound on the Yellowhead. This way you avoid construction issues. If the parking lot is full, you can park in the lot just to the west.

I have also attached a poster for you to share on your social media accounts to help spread the word.

We look forward to seeing you there.
