December 16, 2015, admin

This winter (2015/2016) Hastings Lake Community Assoc. has partnered with Strathcona County Parks and Recreation to provide a free skating rink on our ball diamond for use by the local community. The county will maintain the rink and the Community Assoc. will provide lighting. The rink is open now for use but there are some rough spots so please be careful and wear your safety equipment. The lighting is in progress and should be ready in the next week or so.

2015 Honorary Life Member

June 24, 2015, admin

Ruth Ball was presented an HLCA Honorary Life Membership at the Annual General Meeting on June 17, 2015.


Billy Teefy, HLCA President and Ruth Ball, Past Treasurer

Ruth and her husband, Ron, moved to the Hastings Lake area in 2002 and quickly became involved in the Hall by helping out at various events and with Hall maintenance.  In 2004, Ruth became Vice President of HLCA and moved to the position of President the next year.  In 2006, she became Treasurer – a post which she held until June 2015.

Ruth has been a coordinator for many Hall events over the years including the Harvest Hoedown, Turkey Dinner, Winter Solstice, Volunteers’ Appreciation Barbecue, Community Yard Sale and Travel Nights. In addition to being Treasurer, she also took on the tasks of communications for Hall events and membership. She helped develop the Hall’s pelican logo and Hall website and with the updating of the HLCA By-Laws which were 60 years old.  During her term Ruth assisted with 2 major Community Facilities Enhancement Program (CFEP) grants and numerous Strathcona County grants for Hall events.

Ruth has been a leader with Girl Guides of Canada for 38 years and was recently awarded an Honorary Life Membership in that organization.  She also received a “High Five Award” from Strathcona County’s Family & Community Service, honouring the adults who have made a difference in the lives of the children and youth of Strathcona County.  Ruth currently leads a Ranger Unit (girls 15-17 years). She & Ron enjoy sharing their “bush & beaver pond” property by hosting camps for all age groups.  Ruth feels nothing is more rewarding than hearing a young girl say “Wow, there is a whole lot of nature here!”
