We’re filming a short Public Service Announcement (PSA) about needless idling.  No acting or professional hockey skills required as all you have to do is have fun on the ice rink. We’re looking for a diversity of community to come out, so if you are able to come out for 11 am (awesome) or 1 pm (great too) then come out with your skates and sticks.

See you there.

Notice of Community Association Bylaw Change

At our June 9th AGM (7pm at the hall), we will propose and vote on a bylaw change:
Change of 4.2.1 from “The Board of Directors shall convene an Annual General Meeting of the Membership on or before June 15 of each year.” to “… on or before September 30 of each year.”
This is to give the bookkeeping and account auditing process more time, as it’s quite tight to get it completed prior to June 15th, as well as to move the election of new board members to the fall when our meetings are more regular.
