President’s Message – September 2021
June 12, 2021
I know I am not alone when I say that the summer months are flying by! I cannot believe that it is September already. I hope that everyone has been enjoying the warm weather, even with all the smoke we had. Hopefully, the smoke didn’t impede too many of your plans, and you
were still able to enjoy the outdoors. My family and I were able to do some fun things before/after the smoke, such as a trip to Kelowna, bike rides, swimming, summer camps, and Heritage Park; anything to keep our kids occupied! In terms of the CKE communities, lots has been happening! The sound wall along 14th Street is moving along and should be completed soon. It’s being built three meters west of the original location, due to utility line complications. The Roads Department is building the wall higher to account for the lower grade of the new location. We had another successful bottle drive, and we were able to bring in $2,085!! This is an amazing contribution and will help CKE greatly. Thank you so much to our volunteers and everyone that contributed. Coming up on September 26, we have the CKE Fall BBQ! Don’t miss out on this amazing event, our volunteers work so hard to organize this and it will be so much fun. We will have some games, food, and drinks! I hope to see you all there. We are looking for volunteers for this event as well, so if anyone can help, please send us an email at
firstname.lastname@example.org; we would really appreciate anyone that can help! Also, a reminder that our CKE Community Hall is a fabulous
place to host events! It can accommodate corporate events, birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries, social events, and more! It is available for rent on an hourly or daily rate, so please get in touch with Jen at email@example.com if this interests you. If anyone wants to chat at any time, please feel free to reach out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
