  • Argyll Community Skate Party

    This has been moved to February 26

    Skating, friends & fun. Sounds like a wonderful afternoon doesn't it? Come by the Argyll snowbank rink (on the back side of the playground) to play, visit & have a cup of hot chocolate. Please bring a mug!

    SUNDAY, February 26, 2023 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM

    The rink is ready for skating right now, and will continue to be worked on throughout the winter. Thank you so much to Dave & team for providing ice for the neighbourhood every year.

    Hillside Safety while tobogganing

    Emergency Medical Services (EMS) would like to remind parents and children of some basic toboggan/sledding safety tips. Everyone can be safe and still have fun on the toboggan hill by following these simple reminders.

    Use the right Equipment

    Be prepared

    The rink is currently unavailable for casual skating due to melting.

    Again, a special thank you to the small group of volunteers who help maintain the ice. Their work is very much appreciated. This teamwork is a great example of residents stepping up to help out.

    Argyll Babysitting Registry

    Argyll has a babysitting registry. Qualified local teens are ready to babysit kids within the neighbourhood. We are pleased to offer this service as a way for families & teens to connect. (We are not responsible for matchmaking or interviewing)

    A list of qualified sitters can be provided to you by sending an e-mail to: with your home and e-mail address.

    If you know of any other sitters seeking work, please e-mail their contact information so they might be added to the list.

    Ukulele Ladies & Gentlemen

    This program is run by an Argyll resident, Pat Murray

    Ukuladies and Gentlemen is a ukulele group who has adopted Argyll Community League as their 'home away from home'. The group started at Wellspring, a facility that offers support to cancer patients, their caregivers, and those grieving someone who has passed away from cancer. So we are all connected through one of those channels. When the pandemic hit in March 2020, Wellspring closed and before long we were looking for somewhere safe that we could still gather. I live in Argyll, so I suggested the parking lot near the BMX track, and in May 2020 we started meeting there. Brr! It was chilly! We were well spaced out, but still we had Peace Officers coming around telling us to move our chairs farther apart!

    Eventually we moved from the parking lot into Argyll Park, and continued meeting throughout the summer. As the fall came along that first winter, we went on hiatus. We started meeting up again in the spring, weather permitting. And so we carried on this way, meeting and going on hiatus as the various waves moved through. When the second fall came around, we wondered if it would be possible to meet up in Argyll Hall. I wrote to Dave Trautman, and Lo and Behold, we could, with the restrictions that AHS had in place at that time. We have been gathering in Argyll ever since.

    We get together every week either in Argyll Park, or in the Hall. We play, sing, and laugh a lot. For many of us, this band has been the thing that has helped us cope in these trying times - through cancer and also through Covid 19. We are very grateful to ACL and EJCA for making the Hall available to us!

    The Jammers

    Jammer Group playing in the hall together

    All musicians (at any level of skill) are invited to spend a little time together playing songs and keeping time each week. They meet on Thursdays from Noon until 3:00 PM in the main hall of the Argyll Community Centre. They welcome any instrument you are willing to jam with. Electric and Acoustic instruments are both welcome. Singing on key is optional :-)

    If you want to sit-in on what they get up to each week, contact Ken by phone and get the details for their next jam. You can come and sing, play along or just relax and enjoy the music. Call Ken 780.466.8127 for more information. There is a $2.00 fee for use of the hall.
