Mark your calendars for the Griesbach Outgrown It Sale

The Griesbach Community League is excited to partner with the Griesbach Mommy Tribe for the neighbourhood’s first annual Outgrown It Sale in the Major General Griesbach School gym on Saturday, May 5.

The event gives parents the chance to sell their kids’ gently used clothing, toys and other items. Parents who don’t want to pay full price for new children’s items (and who does?) can find great deals to take home.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will allow private table vendors only. This means no businesses, just a giant indoor garage sale full of kid and baby stuff.

Spots are limited and will be given out on a first-come first-serve basis to anyone who books a table through Eventbrite. Tables are limited to one per person until Friday, April 27. After that date, any remaining tables will be opened up to whoever needs more space.

At the end of the event, a charity will accept any donations of unsold goods.

Admission is free for shoppers. Bring cash, as there will not be an ATM or credit-card services on site. Exact change is appreciated!

Book a table here.

Griesbach Easter egg hunt is fun for every bunny

It was a hopping good time, as 200 Griesbach kids and their adults met on Easter morning for the sold-out Easter Egg Hunt 2018.

Though the weather was chilly, with temperatures around -10 degrees Celsius, 85 families donned their snowsuits and descended on Roundel Lake. Each child had to collect one egg of each colour from around the lake path before turning in their eggs for a Kinder Surprise prize basket.

This year’s event saw a venue change, moving to the northwest section of Griesbach. It was a chance for residents, and their guests, to appreciate the new development happening in the area.

Some Edmonton firefighters dropped by to hand out firefighter hats and colouring books. Kids had the chance to climb aboard a firetruck. The Easter Bunny himself also made a special guest appearance.

The Griesbach Community League would like to give a big thanks to Tim Hortons for donating the doughnuts and to all the dedicated volunteers who made this year’s event another great success.
