Riverbend Community Association would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of Riverbend as well as all the people who attended this year's 2016 Annual Stampede Breakfast for making it such a HUGE SUCCESS !

Although it was hard to give an exact number as people were continuously coming and going - we estimated 3000+ attended this year's festivities - an all time record!

Let us start by thanking each of our special guests:

  • Member of Federal Parliament of Canada for Calgary Shepard - Tom Kmiec
  • Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for Calgary Acadia, and Associate Health Minister - Brandy Payne
  • Mayor of the City if Calgary - Naheed Nenshi
  • City of Calgary Councilor, Ward 12 - Shane Keating
We would like to thank all the sponsors who gave in various ways.  Without these GREAT PARTNERS in the community, it would not have been the success it was for all !

In particular, we wanted to identify each of them at this time:
    • A&W
    • Calgary Airport Authority
    • Calgary Food Bank
    • City of Calgary
    • City of Calgary Fire Department
    • City of Calgary Police Department and Simon the Safety Bear
    • ECCO Recycling
    • Jugo Juice in Quarry Park
    • McDonald’s Riverbend
    • Mission Hill Church
    • Remington Development 
    • Remington YMCA in Quarry Park 
    • Royal Bank Riverbend
    • Sobey’s Riverbend 
    • The Station in Riverbend 
    Each of these groups is OUTSTANDING, and it goes without saying that one easy way for you to say thank you is help support them.  
    You can do this by visiting them at any time and showing them your patronage !  And while you are there - remember to say thank you to them !

    Please feel free to contact Riverbend Community Association at any time how to contact these great organizations !  Over the next little while, we will also be adding additional information on these great organizations and companies to our website.  So, stay tuned for more !

    Riverbend Community Association would also like to thank the three young ladies for gracing us with their dancing on the stage.  It is often hard for grown-ups to have enough courage to do something in front of so many people, but, each of these young ladies was at most - 6 years old.  So, a special thank you to:
    • Ava
    • Lilly
    • Quinn

    And finally,  the following should also be noted for putting in so much time and energy to make this year such a success !
    • Holly
    • Shelby
    • Cassandra
    • Elias
    • Brian

    Thank you again !!!

    And remember to mark your calendars for next year !
