It is September of 2020 and children will be returning to school in a changed environment due to COVID-19.

The pandemic has also affected our ability to sponsor the majority of our annual events this summer. Our last event of the year is “Meet the Police” night, scheduled for September 15th. We are hoping to present this event, pending the Alberta Health Services protocols. If we are able to host this event, flyers will be delivered in the Canora neighbourhood confirming the time and location.

Canora Park Watch would like to send a huge “Thank You” to the Edmonton Arts Council for their “Festival in a Box” Parade on July 4th that made its way through the streets and avenues in our neighbourhood. It was such a joy to see the great energy of this group. The response from the community was extremely positive, for both young and old, bringing smiles to all. It was a very bright spot in this summer of COVID-19 fatigue.

We are already planning our events for 2021 with the focus on creating a strong and diverse community through people, programs, and parks.

Deckla is the Canora Park Watch Coordinator.
