Subject: Spread the Word: Drawn 2 Character & Young Writers' Summer Camps!

 

Hello Community Builders,

 

We hope you are well!

 

Here at YouthWrite, we're already looking ahead to the summer.  Our Summer Young Writers' Camps are coming up, and we're hoping you'll help us by getting the word out!

 

But first! A reminder that our fabulous Drawn To Character workshops run this weekend, and there is still time to register!  We would love it if you could spread the word — our awesome instructors can't wait to explore comics, characters and world-building with your community's young creatives. One last time, here are the workshop dates and links:

·  May 4th: Table Top Adventure with instructor Mason Repka at Red Claw Gaming (13552 Fort Rd NW, Edmonton, AB). Ages 10-19. 10am-3pm.

·  May 5th: Comics Creation with instructors Chelsea Wong and Dan Schneider at Rolling Tales Pop Culture (10219 106 St, Edmonton, AB). Ages 10-19. 10am-3pm.

Now for our fantastic YouthWrite Summer... Our instructors this July are beyond incredible and they are so excited to share their talents and knowledge with creative young writers and artists from across the province!

 

The camp dates and links are below, and our posters are attached to this email. We hope you can help us by putting up our posters, sharing our camp information online or in your newsletters, and in any other way you can! Please let your community know that registration for all camps closes on June 23.

Alberta Bike Swap

Subject: Edmonton Bike Swap 2024

 

Would you mind sharing our non-profit bike swap event please?

We’re Alberta Bike Swap and we provide a safe place to buy, sell, and donate bicycles. If you have a bike to sell or want to buy a bike we’ll tech check that bike and run the serial number to verify bike ownership because no one wants a stolen bike.

We work with dozens of groups to rebuild donated bikes too.  If you have an unused or have outgrown a bike we have a partner that would recondition that bike for re-use.  Please consider contacting us if you are putting on a community clean-up, we’ll make sure that bikes are re-cycled to someone that can use them (pun intended).

Municipalities spend millions on cycling infrastructure, but nothing on cycling education.  CAN-BIKE is the only recognized cycling education program in Canada.  Chris, the taller half of the bike swaps, is the only person in Alberta to have CAN-BIKE Master Instructor status and his courses are informative and educational.  Want to learn how to safely and proficiently? .   Alberta Bike Swap CAN-BIKE

If you’re on Facebook here is the 2024  Calgary and the Edmonton events.  We have Facebook pages for Alberta Bike Swap and Calgary Bike Swap.

We added children's bikes to our events now because it helps families.

I’ve attached a poster for Edmonton and CAN-BIKE. We can’t put our events on without wonderful people like you and we thank you for reading this, hopefully putting up our poster, and maybe following us on social media Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

 

Make it a good day,

 

Chris & Laura

Affordable tennis programs for kids near your league


Hello! My name is Tamara Salajic and I am the Marketing Coordinator for the Edmonton Junior Tennis Society. We touched base earlier about an ad we ran with your league in February. Again, thank you so much for doing that, we really appreciated it! Just for a recap: If you are unfamiliar with the organization, EJTS is a tennis non-profit in Edmonton and the surrounding area which offers affordable tennis lessons for kids ages 4-17 and adults! I was wondering if it would be possible to run an ad with your community league again. We are now advertising our affordable spring classes and there is a location near your league. The write-up could be: "Spring Registration for tennis programs at the Edmonton Junior Tennis Society are still open (EJTS)! EJTS is a tennis non-profit which offers affordable tennis programming, and expert coaching to kids ages 4-17 and adults (18+)! Junior and Adult programming has room for more participants. Adult programs run Thursday-Saturday evenings at the Saville and Kinsmen Sports Centres, and junior programs run Tuesday/Wednesday/Saturday/Sunday afternoons and evenings at various locations. The Meadows Rec Centre near you has spots available for kids ages U5-10+! Please feel free to message us should you have any questions. For more information, or to register, please visit www.edmontonjuniortennis.com." I have a poster as well with more information that could be posted alongside the caption. Let me know if you are interested in running another ad with us! If there is more to be talked about, feel free to shoot me an email back and we can discuss further. If you are looking for a different type of media (example: instagram post), I can create that as well for you. Thank you and have a great day!

Highland Dance Bottle Drive on April 6, 2024


From: CarrieAnn t <cariann_@hotmail.com> Sent: Sunday, March 24, 2024 5:54 PM To: Cindy Wiebe <cindy@woodvalefacility.ca> Subject: Bottle drive

 

Hello Cindy. My name is CarrieAnn, and I’m writing on behalf of McKinnon School of Highland Dance. The dance studio is in the Woodvale community. Some of the dancers are attending the ScotDance Canadian Championship Series in Kamloops this summer from July7 to 11, and are hoping to raise some funds for the trip  

 

The dancers are hosting a bottle drive on April 6, from 10:30-12:30 at the Studio, 323 Woodvale Road.  

Would it be appropriate and ok for us to ask if you are able to post the poster below on the Woodvale community league social media pages, to help promote this event that is in the community?

 

I personally do not have any social media outlets, so I do not know the ins and outs about them. If you require someone to ‘post’ something through social media, I can ask another parent to connect with you. 

 

Thank you again in advance for your consideration.

Support Needed for the Walk for Alzheimer's


From: Bryce Doherty <bdoherty@alzheimer.ab.ca> Sent: Monday, March 11, 2024 9:28 AM Subject: Support Needed for the Walk for Alzheimer's – Let’s Make a Difference Together

 Hello,

I hope this message finds you well. My name is Bryce Doherty, and I am reaching out on behalf of the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories. We are preparing for our annual IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's, set to take place on May 26 at Laurier Park. This event is a cornerstone of our efforts to support individuals and families navigating life with alzheimer’s and dementia. Currently 1 in 3 Albertans are affected by an alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis, with projections over the next 20 years forecasting a 300% increase in the number of people living with dementia. These numbers are not just statistics; they represent our family members, friends, and neighbors whose lives are altered by this diagnosis.

As a not-for-profit organization, we provide free services to those impacted by alzheimer's and dementia. The funds raised from the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's go directly into our programs and services, ensuring that we can continue to offer the support and resources needed by so many.

We kindly ask for your help in promoting the Walk. If your community hall has an event board or if you could share our event poster with your community, it would greatly amplify our efforts. Your support would not only help us raise awareness but also bolster community involvement in an event that promises hope and support for countless individuals and families.

Attached, you will find our event poster and further information. We would be deeply grateful for any assistance you can provide in sharing this within your community. Your support plays a vital role in our mission, and together, we can make a significant impact.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or need further information. We appreciate your partnership in making the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's a success.

Warmest regards,

Bryce Doherty Events Coordinator
