Ritchie School still stands at 9735 75 Ave., but not for long. Stantec, which is building the replacement school next door, invites you to a farewell BBQ June 22, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring any photos or Ritchie School and memorabilia you would like to showcase. You’ll also be able to request materials like bricks be set aside for you when the time comes to bring the venerable structures down.
Borrowing privileges are free with your Ritchie Community League membership
Ritchie Community League members are now members of the Edmonton Tool Library and can borrow from among its 1,150 items FREE. At its June 6 meeting, the league joined 42 others in sponsoring the Library, which is housed at the Bellevue Community Hall (7308 112 Ave.). It’s open twice a week for pick ups and drop offs, but its collection is searchable online, anytime.
Mother’s Day is May 12, but SCONA Seniors invites you and your moms to a dinner, dance and 1950’s fashion show a week earlier on May 5 at Ritchie Community League.
Doors open at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $25.
