Congratulations to all the Evergreen Graduates!

While school kids everywhere have had their lives and routines upended by COVID-19, for the Graduating Seniors it’s years of anticipation cut short, and it’s hard. Instead of coming together in their final weeks of school to celebrate prom, senior week, and, most of all, a big graduation ceremony, they’ve become sudden homeschoolers, and are forced to FaceTime with friends instead of going out, knowing things aren’t about to change so fast.

So the Edmonton Evergreen Community Association would like to “honour” our Seniors by doing a window display with their photos at the Community Hall. If you have a photo of your graduate please email secretary@eeca.ca or call 780-473-6962 to arrange photo drop off!

Welcome

Evergreen is a mobile home park nestled in a beautiful, naturally wooded ravine in north east Edmonton. Today, the park is a thriving community with approximately 1,500 people and 640 homes. Established around 1970, most of the growth in the park occurred between 1970 and 1979. Evergreen offers many leisure and recreational activities for everyone.

Edmonton Evergreen Community Association (EECA) was established in 1982 and has been active ever since with hundreds of volunteers over the years planning a number of community wide family events each year. EECA also provides and maintains amenities such as a community hall, an outdoor rink, a skate shack and a playground A community league is a volunteer, not-for-profit organization formed to meet the needs and interests of residents within a defined geographic area. Any resident within the boundaries of the community may become a member. EECA exists for its members and strives to ensure that all activities are conducted with courtesy and respect and without discrimination.

 

Our Vision of Evergreen:

Evergreen instills a small town experience where a sense of belonging and community pride is promoted by its residents.  Evergreen is a safe and respectful community where neighbours help neighbours.  

Our Mission as the Evergreen Community Association:

EECA instills a sense of home by enhancing the quality of life for its residents through its facilities, programs, and events which seek to include all cultures, ages, and abilities.

We provide a voice of advocacy on issues that impact our neighbourhood by both developing a positive relationship with governing bodies and building partnerships with other organizations.
