Community Hall Construction & Fundraising Update – June 2019

A tremendous amount of progress and decisions have been made in the last few weeks. Thanks to the generous help and support of the community, we were able to pursue the original construction plans and we’re hopeful we will meet the September launch date.

2019 CKE Community Builder Award

| News

Each year, at our AGM, the community association recognizes an individual or group who consistently participates in making our community a great place to live.

We are lucky to live in a community with so many volunteers willing to take take roles of responsibility in our CA. It’s a lot of work and a typical tenure rarely lasts longer than 6 or 7 years. There are a couple of exceptions to that and this year we have our longest committed board members were stepping down this year. The duration and magnitude of their commitment to our CA and our community is truly remarkable and we felt it appropriate to recognize them as this years Community Builder Award Winners.

Jackie Pontin and Alison Brown

This was our 57th AGM, believe it or not, Jackie was first elected to our board at our 23rd AGM. She has served on the board for an incredible 34 years. Jackie has served most recently as our Facilities Director handling the day to day management of the hall.

Jackie and her husband Tim have lived in Chinook Park for 35 years where they raised their 3 children. After threatening to move for several years now, they have decided it’s time to downsize as they want to have more time to spend with their grandchildren and their families. We will miss them in the community and hope they will stop by the new hall regularly!

Allison Brown lives with his wife Jennifer in Kelvin grove where they also raised three children. Allison has served as Tennis Director for 22 years. During the majority of that time, the tennis program at CKE has been consistently popular and is an important part of our association. While he is stepping down from the board, Allison is not going anywhere and will continue to support our recreation director with the tennis program.

Both Jackie and Allison have of course been on the board for the duration of the new community centre project and we thought it would be fitting to recognize them in a permanent way with 2 bricks in our legacy wall commemorating their long tenure on the board.

If you see them in the community be sure to congratulate our 2019 CKE Community Builder Award winners!


Casino Fundraiser

|

Come on down to the Casino and join in on the fun!

This fundraising event is critical to the CKE Community Association and will raise roughly $70,000! These funds are allocated according to the AGLC requirements and are an integral part of the operating budget. CKE is eligible to host this event every 18 months, and CKE is proud to be hosting this year for the 4th time!

Volunteer! It’s Worth $2,500!

Without eager community volunteers, this event would not be possible. 40 volunteers are required to pull this event off and we’re still in need of bodies. Every shift is worth around $2,500 – talk about getting bang for your buck with volunteer hours! 

If interested, please contact [email protected] Your help is greatly appreciated!
