2012 Annual General Meeting

Important Notice


We were forced to cancel the November, 2012 Annual General Meeting (AGM) because of a lack of attendance by the Association’s membership. The AGM has been rescheduled for Sunday, February 24th at 2:00pm. If you have an active Association membership expiring on June 30, 2013, it is very important that you attend this meeting – if this meeting must also be cancelled due to lack of attendance, the Community Association and the after-school care program may have to be closed.

Please consider taking an hour out of your busy schedule and come to the main hall at 821 Abbeydale Drive NE to help us decide the future of the Association. The main topic will be changes to our by-laws to keep this unusual situation from happening in the future. If we can get approval to put these changes in place, we can keep the Association and after school care and other programs open in your community.

Again, we hope to see you at the AGM. Thank you in advance for attending.
