Welcome home to Copperfield & Mahogany! Here’s what is happening in our communities!
The Copperfield & Mahogany Community Association (formerly known as the Copperfield/Mahogany Community Association) is dedicated to bringing community spirit to the SE Communities of Copperfield and Mahogany.
Our March newsletter has been published. Click here to find out more.
Community Association Casino
Our Community Association casino will take place Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14th, 2018 at Cowboys Casino (#421, 12 Avenue SE Calgary). We are granted only one casino every 24 months and these funds help offset the maintenance costs for the building, putting on our favorite community events such as the annual Stampede Event (Picnic in the Park) and Movie in the Park as well as the ability to purchase equipment to ensure our rinks are in fine form during the winter months.
This is a very important couple of days for the Community Association. We typically raise between $60,000 and $80,000 during a casino event however without volunteer help we could not support this casino and therefore would not be able to raise this kind of money.
We are looking for approximately 40-45 volunteers over the course of the two days/nights. If you love to volunteer or want a fun day/night out from the family or even date with the spouse, this is the event for you to volunteer at! Please see below a breakout of volunteer shifts that we are looking to fill.
As a thank you for volunteering, dinner, non-alcoholic drinks and snacks will be provided for all volunteers during their shift! Day shifts are from (11:00am-7:30pm). Volunteer options for these shifts are:
- General Manager
- Cashier x 2
- Chiprunner x 2
- Spare on call
Evening shifts are from (7:00pm-4:00am). Volunteer options for
these shifts are:

Thank you from the Copperfield & Mahogany Community Association!
Clothing and Textiles Bin
The clothing & textiles recyling bin has a new home at the Copperfield Hall Community parking lot under the flagpole (6 Copperstone Way S.E.). We encourage you to divert textiles from the landfill and bring them here. Thanks to those who have already made donations to the bin!
Items please need to be clean, dry & bagged for protection, including old or stained clothes, slightly worn clothing, socks (holes or no), footwear (1 or a pair), hats, backpacks, curtains, towels, linens, pillows, comforters, and even stuffed animals! Please note, No hard plastic toys as these are not a recyclable textile!
All usable items will be donated locally first, used internationally, and any unusable items will be shredded and recycled into new products! A portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the Community Association and Copperfield School.
- Did you know that over 10,000 tons of textiles was dumped into the City of Calgary landfill in 2014? That pile of clothes would be as tall as the Calgary Tower.
- 2019 marks the estimated timeline to bylaw textile waste being permitted into the city landfill.
- Who would have thought, blue jeans make far superior insulation for homes than any insulation currently being sold!
- Textiles can take of to 1000 years to decompose and through the process release chemicals and carbon dioxide into our environment.
- “My Grandma’s the original recycler! She thought of new uses for everyday items”
