Reminder!

Church Ranches Homeowners Association AGM is on

February 10, 2022

Caution!

This is a reminder that ice thickness can vary  as temperatures rise and fall. The Church Ranches Homeowners Association does NOT monitor ice thickness for winter sport safety

Please exercise caution and common sense when using the lakes. Thank you!


Ode to Church Ranches in Winter 

The mercury is dipping low:

Air is frosty; clouds threaten snow.

 

The lakes are frozen across breadth.

And fish are resting down full depth.

 

Tracks running ‘cross the path display

A deer or two have passed this way.

 

Bare branches reach up to the sky

 Beneath the snow their old leaves lie.

 

Chickadees flit and fly about

Bobbing black caps and white breasts stout.

 

Skaters have marked the ice with blades

Shooting pucks as the daylight fades.

 

The sun dips low and darkness falls

So early now as supper calls.

 

A distant coyote yips its howl

Hunting prey wanted in its jowl.

 

Gently the first few flakes appear

Silence is now all that you hear.

 

The wind blows cold and brings a chill

And drifts the snow down over hill.


Windows from houses glow with light,

Promising warmth that pierces night.


This, a special place to enter:

Our Church Ranches, cloaked in winter.

Enjoy the less frigid temperatures! 

THANK YOU!

Thank you to Church Ranches homeowners who recently have taken the initiative to retrofit their spiked fences and gates to remove the hazard of the spikes.

Spikes pose a well-documented danger to wildlife. Deer and moose have been impaled in Church Ranches and other areas of Bearspaw. The animals usually do not survive and it can be a traumatic, disturbing scene.

Modifications to remove, replace or cover spikes in gates and fences are greatly appreciated.

Members can make submissions to the Bulletin Board at info@churchranches.ca including advertisements, art work and creative writing. We'd love to have your submissions of photographs and information about the birds, plants, insects and wildlife on the common lands.
