The Spirit of Burnewood Sponsorship Program

Burnewood Community’s motto is “Life is Good in Burnewood” and it’s hard for the majority of us to disagree with this statement.  We have great schools, plenty of green space for recreation and a strong community spirit that provides a safe environment for our children to thrive in.  There are still some opportunities, however, that are beyond the reach of some of our families.  We believe that every child should have the opportunity to have a healthy and active life!  To help achieve this goal, the League has established a Program Sponsorship Initiative called the “Spirit of Burnewood”. This initiative will allow children from families who have limited financial resources to participate in sports and recreational activities.

The scope of this program will initially be limited to programs run by the League.  These programs include Art, Basketball, Computer, Karate Do, Dance, and Sportball. If there is another program with which you may need help, don't hesitate to discuss the matter with our president, Rocky Hanson.

This initiative will provide free registrations in the children's programs highlighted above.  To qualify children must be 18 years of age or under, and a resident of Burnewood.  Asking for help is sometimes hard so our aim is to make the registration process as unintrusive as possible. 
If you would like to take advantage of this program please contact Rocky Hanson at pres@burnewood.ca or by mail at 4118 – 41 Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T6L 5Y6.

History

When it was founded, in December 1981, the Burnewood Community League was fairly isolated from the City of Edmonton with no adjacent league to rely upon. The early objectives of the community were the establishment of postal and bus services to connect it with the rest of Edmonton.

Because of its isolation, the community had low visibility on the City’s agenda. But soon, thanks to determined effort by the community, the League soon amazed City officials with its residents’ ability to organize. In time, postal and bus services were established, as was a cooperative car pool for the League residents.

Our first communities were Burnewood Junction and Kiniski Gardens, and we now include Creeks Crossing, Kulawy Gardens and Jackson Heights. We are located in South East Edmonton; our boundaries are: Whitemud Drive to the North, 34th Street to the East, Mill Creek Ravine to the South and 50th Street to the West.

From the start, Burnewood’s residents were a generous lot. They have contributed generously to the establishment of the Mill Woods Cultural and Recreational Facility Association (MCARFA), the establishment of the Mill Woods Recreation Center, and many other projects. Our community continues to grow and mature. We offer a number of social and recreational programs for both children and adults.  We can also provide advice to our seniors on programs or services that they may need.
