Flower Pot Volunteer – High Country Lodge

High Country Lodge is in need of Volunteers to help our residents in the watering & maintenance of our flower pots! Volunteers must fill out a short application and have a criminal record check. Ideally we’d like to see our residents have assistance 3-4 times per week. This could be shared between more than one volunteer. If you have a green thumb or just enjoy gardening, we’d love to hear from you!


Diamond Valley Block Parent Program

We are seeking to have at least 50 qualified homes in BOTH Black Diamond and Turner Valley. Priority will be near the schools, parks and on busy pedestrian arteries to the schools.

The Diamond Valley Block Parent Program is the only nationwide RCMP-endorsed community safety program in Canada. Block Parent community networks are visible safe places for children, seniors or anyone else to go if they are in distress from bullying, injury or being followed.

Requirements: everyone 12 years of age and up must undergo a criminal record check which is done by the Turner Valley RCMP. Once passed, each home will receive a Block Parent window sign to display when the adults are home and available to assist. The sign is removed when the adults are not home. Each home is rechecked and requalified every 2 years. There is no cost to become a Block Parent.

For more information or to register, please contact:
