Phone service has been restored at the Crowfoot YMCA – all incoming calls and outgoing calls are now working. Thank you for your patience.
Premier Alison Redford and Minister of Health Fred Horne toured the SFC Evacuation Site this morning. Premier Redford, Minister Horne, and YMCA COO Kelly Smith spoke with seniors, visited with nurses, and thanked people for their patience and their incredible demonstrations of resiliency during these times of crisis.
The phones are still out of service at the Crowfoot YMCA and no incoming or outgoing calls. Staff remain able to communicate as required via cell phones and the branch is fully operational this morning.
Unfortunately, no incoming or outgoing phone service currently at the Crowfoot YMCA. We will advise as soon as the phones are operational again. In the meantime, staff on site are able to maintain communication via cell phones. Sorry for this inconvenience.
ALL Saddletowne YMCA swim lessons are canceled for Saturday. The branch will be open, but there are not enough aquatics staff to safely offer swim lessons. We thank you for your understanding.
The Eau Claire YMCA will remain closed until the end of the day Saturday due to continued flooding in the area and a mandatory evacuation.
Due to the numerous closures and evacuations, the Aboriginal
Awareness Week Family Day event has been cancelled. Therefore, the annual
Aboriginal Youth Hoops tournament set to run at Millennium Park on Saturday has
also been cancelled.
Due to the continuing evacuation notices, YMAP Grad will be canceled this evening. We will miss celebrating with the students – stay safe everyone!
Thank you to all the golfers who were still able to make out and support our Strong Kids golf tournament. Despite no golf, everyone still enjoyed YMCA fellowship, the silent auction, and a great dinner. Many children and youth in our community will benefit from everyone’s wonderful support.
Thank you again for making a difference in our community!
A very generous legacy gift of $117,000,000 was made to The Calgary Foundation today by Mr. Daryl “Doc” Seaman.
This is an amazing, almost incomprehensible gift, that truly will create a legacy for generations to come in our great city.
I attended the celebration luncheon to recognize, celebrate, and announce this gift. What amazed me even more was how little people talked about the money. Speaker after speaker spoke about Doc’s character, his legendary handshake, his Saskatchewan roots, his care for others, his desire to “leave everything as good as you found it, if not better.”
Legacy is a powerful word—and today, I saw and heard first-hand—just how much of a legacy Doc has already created and just how much more will be created because of his character.
While we may not all have $117 million dollars, we all have character.
And character, does indeed, determine each of our legacies.
Thank you, Doc–for inspiring us all to think about how we will leave everything better than we found it.
