On behalf of the sports performance students and the staff of Our Lady of Peace, I would like to express my gratitude for the use of the rinks over the 4 week period this Winter. Any opportunity we have to enhance our physical education curriculum is a blessing. The students that were learning to skate were given the opportunity to improve their skills, and the hockey players were ever so thankful for the opportunity to "play at school."

The quality of the ice was excellent and the snow removal very timely.

Thanks again for the use the facilities and for the smiles that were on all faces. Please pass on our thanks to the maintenance staff for their hard work. We look forward to working with you in the years to follow.

The Alberta government has commissioned a functional planning study to address the long term transportation needs for the south section of the Calgary Ring Road - Highway 22X from Deerfoot Trail to west of 85th Street SW.

Stakeholder communication is an important component of this study. Over the coming months, stakeholders, community associations and members of the public will have opportunities to view the alternatives being considered and provide input and comments. This information will be considered by the project team as they develop the recommended corridor plan.

The first open house will provide information about the study area and some of the options being considered. It is scheduled to take place:

  • Wednesday June 11, 2008
  • 4-8 pm
  • Southview Alliance Church,
  • 1436 James McKevitt Road SW

South Calgary Ring Road Study

May 17th, the Millrise Community Association held a clean up. The city of Calgary, e-cycle and Navajo Metals, set up at the rink site to collect our garbage, old computers, TV’s and patio furniture. Approximately 60 vehicle loads of unwanted “junk” were brought in to be disposed of. We had beautiful weather, amazing volunteers and quite possible the friendliest workers in the city sent to help us out. The gentlemen from the city and the recycling company worked so hard, that our volunteers took it upon themselves to clean the rink and surrounding area of garbage. Our site looks fabulous. We set up a BBQ to feed all who attended, and not only did we accomplish our objective, but we had a great time doing it. Scott, thank you for all the work you did organizing our clean up!

I want to thank all the volunteers for sacrificing a day of their long weekend, to come out and support this effort. I was truly amazed at the number of responses we received once the call for help went out. This is a vibrant, caring community and we should all be proud to live here.

Keep checking the website for upcoming events. If there are things that are of interest to your family, please contact the community association through the website (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and let us know.

Do you love cold weather and clearing snow?  Better yet, have you always wanted to drive a Zamboni? 

We're the Millrise ice crew and we maintain the ice through the winter. The good news is that we have machines to do the heavy work and the work is extremely rewarding when we see kids active and skating. We're always looking for new volunteers. In October each year we begin our fall tune-up and we generally begin making ice in late November; please plan on coming down early in the year and get acquainted with the work.
