Recent News and Upcoming Events
Hello Greenfield -
With the declaration of an emergency under the Public Health Act by the Government of Alberta today, and with direction of the City of Edmonton and Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues, all community facilities are now closed. This includes our hall, the skate shack and the ice, as well as the playground.
In these rapidly changing times, I would remind us all to look to reliable sources of information when making decisions, remembering that we are making choices not only for ourselves as individuals, but for our families, our neighbours and our community. One great source of reliable, up to date is the government of Alberta’s website.
Please also remember that these stressful times will find highs and lows for us all - the confusion and change make it easy for people and risk to be missed. Please check on your neighbours - make a phone call, slip a note in a mailbox, or video chat!
There are lots of great groups starting online to offer support and connection, please reach out. Make a friend, help a neighbour, and maybe we’ll all make it through these challenges with resilience and wisdom.

Hello Greenfield -
The news recently has been very focused on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The research and data on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, very rapidly. It can be hard to stay up to date and there are a lot of sources of information - I would remind everyone to look at alberta.ca as a trusted source for up-to-date information.
At the Community League, we are watching the news carefully and working closely with both the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues as well as with our City of Edmonton partners to ensure Greenfield Community League is in-line with best health practices to minimize our risk and impacts.
It is okay to uncertain, and I would encourage everyone in Greenfield to take all precautions to keep themselves and their families safe.
Our very wise Secretary posted the following, and it resonates very closely for me:
"We can't control the future or the actions of others. But we can control how we act and react. We can choose to be careful and safe, as well as kind and compassionate.
We can choose to be good neighbours.
We can choose to love and support one another."
So Greenfield, as we move through these trying times, stay safe. Stay connected - even if it's from a distance, or through a elbow-five, or a text message. If you have a neighbour who is isolated, reach out safety to help them get through two long weeks. If you are the one staying at home, please feel free to reach out to your neighbours, or to us here at the Board, and we will help.
The below information on health recommendations comes directly from Alberta Health:
