The building was first opened on December 31, 1991 for the first New Years Gala. Now many people and groups use the centre on a daily basis. From weddings and birthday and Christmas parties to business seminars, meetings and luncheons.
The Riverbend Community Association is a volunteer organization of individuals elected annually at the Annual General Meeting in June. The Board and Executive committee, consists exclusively of residents that meet once each month at the Community Centre.
The Board deals with the day to day operations involved with running the facility, (i.e.,. maintenance of building, rink and property), as well as organizing many events.
The Community Association produces a monthly newsletter called the "Riverbend Review". It features regular articles and provides residents with up-to-date information about our programs, activities and upcoming events in the community and The City.
The City of Calgary invites our Community Association to make comments regarding any Planning applications and Development permit applications in our neighbourhood. The Board of Directors welcomes input from our residents on such matters.
Our Community Liaison Officer (CLO) from the City of Calgary Police Department is a regular visitor to our monthly board meetings, updating us on crime statistics and other important matters relating to our community.We are always looking for volunteers to help out with various sub-committees and special events, so if you want to make new friends and have fun at the same time, please contact us.
RCA also has some of the best programs going! We have long standing tenants that have successful businesses running from within our centre.
We also support our sponsored groups, such as our Seniors group, Scouts and Guides, Adult Sports, Youth Justice Committee and Euchre by providing them with free space on a weekly basis. To find out more about these groups -- go to the Community Programs page.
