Community News and Events

2019 Planned Events

  • Saturday September 8 10 AM to Noon – “SECA Plays” at Evergreen Drive Park

We’re bringing more active outdoor play to our neighbourhood! For more information on our “loose parts play pop up event”, email play@shawneeevergreen.ca to receive our SECA PLAYS e-newsletter and be sure to join the @SECAplays Facebook Group.

  • Saturday September 14 9 AM to 2 PM – Community Cleanup at South Gate Alliance Church

Used construction material, garden waste, metal and electronic recyclables, etc. will all be accepted. Bikes in ridable condition will be welcomed as well as reusable items for donation to the Salvation Army. Unfortunately, paper shredding will not be available this year due to the introduction of an excessive fee for this service. Volunteers are needed to help direct traffic, assist in unloading, etc. Please contact Liala at (403) 532-2981. Your help will be appreciated!

Mark your calendar for these events now!

  • Saturday September 21 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM – “Fun Day – Soccer and More” at 1150 Everridge Dr SW fields next to Marshall Springs School

A fun day of family activities and food including:

  • pick up soccer matches
  • soccer skills challenges
  • physical literacy obstacle course
  • Adventure Play Pop Up
  • food trucks and more

This event is co-hosted by Calgary Minor Soccer Association along with SECA, Evergreen and Shawnessy Community Associations. More information is available at myceca.ca/funday.

Community Led Initiatives

SECA is keen to be responsive to your needs. Bringing an idea to life just takes a community member or two to come forward to assist us. We’ll provide lots of support.

Some of the ideas that emerged at the March Neighbour Night included:

  • Meet Ups for runners, walkers, dog walkers
  • Gardeners meet up, workshop or a speaker series
  • Yoga in the park
  • Biking workshop – Get riding your bike comfortably and confidently!
    • for kids
    • for women
  • SECA Summer Festival or community BBQ
  • Loose parts play program or a play group – because it’s more fun when there are more kids at the park

Please email vp@shawneeevergreen.ca to express your interest in seeing any of these ideas implemented or to suggest your own ideas.

SECA Board Meetings

SECA Board meetings are the second Tuesday each month (except in summer months of July and August) in Room 211 at South Gate Alliance Church. SECA members are welcome to come to any of our Board Meetings. Your input is valued! Board Meeting cancellations will be posted at the SECA web site so please check web site for notifications.

Shawnee-Evergreen Community Association (SECA) and Residents Associations: What’s the difference?

Shawnee-Evergreen Community Association (SECA) and Residents Associations: What’s the difference?
1. The Shawnee-Evergreen Community Association (SECA) is a volunteer organization originally formed by the residents of the Shawnee Slopes and Evergreen Estates communities. It includes residents in Beacon Hill condominiums, Highbury Place, Shawnee Park, Fish Creek Exchange and The Manor Village at Fish Creek Park. SECA’s focus is “Working Together for Our Community’s Future” to:

  • manage and direct its social and recreational activities
  • act as an intervener in civic matters (planning and development)

NOTE: Membership in SECA is voluntary

2. The Evergreen Residents Association (ERA) is an organization created by the land developer (Genstar) for the “newly” developed area in Evergreen Estates (i.e. south of the old 146th Avenue) as well as for most of the rest of Evergreen. On September 1, 2011, Genstar officially handed over control of the ERA to the residents of Evergreen and Evergreen Estates. The ERA now owns and maintains the 17 community entrance features and feature park sites, originally constructed by Genstar in the development of Evergreen and the new portion Evergreen Estates.

All questions or concerns (i.e. garbage pickup, snow removal, burned out lamps, green space damage, etc.) should be directed to admin@evergreenresidents.ca. Further information can be found on the ERA website at www.evergreenresidents.ca.

3. The Shawnee Park Residents Association (SPRA) will be an organization similar to the ERA when the community has been fully built out and all residences occupied. Until that time Cardel Homes is collecting an encumbrance fee from residents commencing in in 2019.

NOTE: Membership in Resident’s Associations is compulsory and the requirement to pay an annual fee is collected by the Residents Association through an encumbrance on title.
