Grandview Maintenance Work


During the last week of August, 2019 RC Edmonton West Daytimers volunteered at Grandview to work on some maintenance projects including significant work on the fence.

Special thanks to Brian, Vic, Fred, Al, John, JP, and Duane.  They put around 64 hours in at Grandview


Roots for Trees













Members of the RC Edmonton West joined the Riverview RC and the Centennial Interact Club (Ross Sheppard High School) with a Root For Trees event.  17 people planted 231 trees. Riverview RC also treated the crew to pizza. Special Roman Bayrock of Riverview RC helped organize this event.

Riverview RC and the RC of Edmonton West co-sponsor the Centennial Interact Club and we’re looking forward to more opportunities to work with both clubs.

Special thanks to our Youth Director Aly Khan Merali for getting out club involved.
