    Limited community activity is now permitted

    Yoga and other programming will operate

    As you've probably seen, new Guidelines for opening were announced on Friday September 11. This means limited use of the community hall is permitted under the current restrictions around distancing and cleaning as well as designated group sizes for indoor activity. Argyll Hall will continue to NOT allow for outside rentals. As the seasons change these guidelines are expected to be revised.

    Both ACL and EJCA have been working together to ensure proper procedures are explained and followed.

    Argyll's collective response to the situation will continue. Our Response Team still operates for anyone needing some help with things. I continue to encourage everyone to reach out to your neighbours and stay in contact with them so we don't find anyone feeling alone, or who may need assistance. Sometimes just knowing there are people around us willing to help is enough of a comfort to people.

    Fortunately Argyll Community League has not experienced income difficulties which many other leagues have reported. We've been fortunate to keep costs down and already have held our Casino in early 2020, so the finances are still good for the coming year. We will, of course, experience a drop in revenue from outside rentals.

I recommend having a bookmark of this site on your favourite browser and consult it daily for their evolving response. AHS

    Argyll YOGA

    Classes have resumed

    Yoga for Strength, Alignment and Flexibility

    Wednesdays 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM in the Main Hall for distancing.

    This programme is instructed by Renee Giammarioli, a Physiotherapist and YAA Certified Hatha yoga instructor. Renee blends both easy and challenging poses, flow sequences and mindfulness meditation practice into each class. The class is geared towards increasing your body awareness, stretching out chronically tight muscles, for improving postural alignment and increasing awareness of the breath. Core strength and overall body strengthening will also be challenged. Renee is skilled at adapting the yoga practice for people with an injury or limitation, using props and adaptations as required. Feel free to contact Renee at 780.903.1911 to be registered.

    Argyll Community is pleased to be able to present this Hatha Yoga Programme to both residents and the general public. Classes are held during winter and spring (in the main hall) each Wednesday evening from 7:30 — 9:00 PM.

    We limit the class to 12 students. Contact Renee if you are planning to register. Also be sure to let her know if you have a recent injury or some physical limitations.

    Sundays with Neighbours – in the Playground

    A casual gathering of neighbours have been continuing their Sundays in the Park, 3:00 – 5:00 PM every Sunday. This is an informal time to drop by, knowing there will be other families hanging out there as well.

    There is no agenda or organized play. Just parents and kids getting familiar with each other.

    The Jammers

    Jammer Group playing in the hall together

    Each week a group of musicians spend a little time together playing songs and keeping time. 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.

    If you want to sit-in on what they get up to each week, then 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.
