On Saturday, January 4, McLeod will host its 4th annual Newcomer Skate from 1-3pm. This event gives those who have never previously tried skating an opportunity to try. We have plenty of skates for loan and skating is free. Hot chocolate is provided. This is always a fun event. If you’ve never tried skating, or you know somebody who hasn’t, please join us! No membership is required. As with any outdoor skating event, this event is weather-dependent. 

  

On Saturday, January 25, McLeod will host its 3rd annual Golinoski 3v3 adult hockey tournament. Entry fee is $100 per team and we guarantee at least 3 games. This event is always lots of fun with hockey played at a level appropriate to casual players. If you’re interested in playing, or have a team to enter, please email Jason at secretary@mcleodcl.ca.

Homeless Camps have been spotted in our community. If you spot a homeless camp on City of Edmonton parks or property please call 311 and report the exact location. City staff will attend and try to assist the people living at the camp. If you're not sure if someone is homeless or is acting suspicious call EPS at 780-423-4567. 


Home Safety 

Do not make yourself an easy target. Do not leave bags of cans or bottles, bikes or anything else in your yard in plain view. Store in sheds, put a lock on your gates, install motion lights and or invest in a home security system. Before you go to bed ensure your car doors and house doors and windows are locked. Do not leave change, valuables or garage door openers in your vehicle. 


Personal Safety

Now that its getter darker earlier make sure your wearing some reflective clothing when walking or jogging at night. Stay on sidewalks or lighted paths. Try to find a friend or group to walk with. Bring your cell phone with you. Be aware of your surroundings.

Safety Tips

image17

Did you know that a vehicle can only be left unmoved for 72 hours on a highway which includes roadways? Now that the snow has fallen it is easy to spot the vehicles not moving on a regular basis due to snow on the vehicle and the dry pavement underneath.


If the vehicle is not moved every 72 hours it is then considered abandoned and can come with a fine of $310.00 plus the cost of towing. If you are not driving the vehicle every 72 hours I suggest putting the vehicle on a driveway or garage. If you spot an abandoned vehicle you can report it by calling 311.
