Thanks to everyone that came out to the AGM on May 15th. We welcomed 2 new Board members. Erin Anderson was added as the Social Director and Louise Clayholt is the new Membership Director taking over from Robin Diagle who moved into a general role.
We also want to thank two past members who decided to retire from the board after an amazing run supporting our community. Allison Brown has been on the Board for 22 years. He spent the last portion of his time focusing on the tennis program. Jackie Pontin was our longest standing member at 34 years. Jackie did an amazing job running the community centre. On behalf of the Board and entire community, we thank you both for all your time and efforts that helped make the CKE one of the best communities in the vity, and we wish you both a happy “retirement”!
As I’m sure you have heard, we’ve had some significant budget challenges with the new facility. Some cost overruns due to extra infrastructure scopes, cold weather, subsurface issues among other things. The board with help from other community members were able to create an information package to keep everyone up to date including information on donation opportunities. In the first 2 weeks of fundraising activities we reached 35% of our target, including a matching program from an Angel Donor who graciously offered to match all donations up to $100,000; what an amazing community we live in. If you would like to contribute, you can make a tax-deductible donation through the Parks Foundation. We do still need more funds to build the facility we all envision.
Thanks to everyone who was able to come for a tour of the construction site on May 4th. We had some great feedback and the excitement was infectious. Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming grand opening party this fall.
