Hi neighbours,

Only a few days are left to vote for a fun community event, the 23rd Avenue Artwalk & Street Celebration!

This won’t take place until September 22nd, but we’re applying for a Calgary 2012 Grassroots Initiative Grant which has a fast-approaching deadline.

Grants will be awarded to the top 12 projects with the most votes, and we’re in 10th place right now. So please help to keep us in that spot – vote for us at, or follow the links & instructions from our own website:

If you feel really inspired, you can vote once every day until the end of July.

Thanks for your support! Details about the 23rd Avenue Artwalk & Street Celebration can be found on our website and in the upcoming (September) issue of the Ramsay newsletter.

All the best from

Sam Hester.

Century Homes Heritage Walking Tour Today

July 29th, 2012

It’s a beautiful day for a walking tour of Ramsay’s heritage homes.

Come out and explore these heritage homes, (we will not be going inside any of the homes,) mingle with fellow community residents, learn and share Ramsay’s unique heritage.

Because it is a walking tour, participants will be given a map of the Century Homes locations, to be able to break from the tour and continue it later, or on their own time, if preferred.

The tour will start in front of the Ramsay Community Association, 1136 8 St SE. Sunday, July 29th, at 2:00 pm. The tour is scheduled to go until 4:30pm
