Dear Residents of the Village of Edgerton,

May 29, 2020

With the restrictions being somewhat eased in Phase 1 of Alberta’s Relaunch, people’s spirits lifted a bit. Some people were even fortunate to get in for a much needed haircut. The MD Campgrounds are all open with capacity capped at 50%. Many stores were able to open their doors to the public, but most have reduced hours of operation because of the intense cleaning and sanitization. Dentists, optometrists, dine-in restaurants, some day surgeries and Physiology Therapy were allowed to resume as well.

The Golf Course is busy and everyone is being very cognizant about the rules that are in place. Three of us booked a tee time, drove out in separate vehicles and we didn’t double up on a cart. Not the way we’d normally do it but it’s the “new way of normal” and we had loads of fun. The Golf Course is looking great too! Kudos to Chad Thirsk and his crew!

The caution tape will be removed from the playgrounds as they open up on Monday morning. Just as a reminder: with the opening of the playgrounds, this is not a risk-free activity as they are high touch areas. Clean hands, wiping surfaces, reminding people about social distancing and washing/sanitizing your hands before you play, after you play and when you get home, are all good health practices. Thank you to ALL children and parents for following the public health guidelines and being so respectful and understanding of the playground closures. There will be some very happy children and parents come Monday! Enjoy but play safe!

There are a lot of children enjoying their bikes and are out and about on the streets. It’s awesome to see the little “bike gangs” out having so much “clean fun.” We just ask that everyone slow down and keep an eye out for these little ones while driving.

Speaking of bikes: it’s very generous of the Tondu family to share their Motocross Track with all the young local riders! They have so much fun out there! Edgerton is fortunate to have so many kind and generous people in our community!

Premier Kenney has said that so far we are on track to move to Stage 2 of Alberta’s Relaunch which is tentatively scheduled for June 19th.

Thanks for being and staying safe!

Wendy Belik, Mayor
Village of Edgerton
