President’s Message – June 2021

June 12, 2021

Hello Neighbours!

The summer is just about here, and I couldn’t be more
excited to get outdoors and take advantage of so many
of the things that make CKE a great place to live.
Whether it’s working with neighbours to support our
bottle drives (July 17 is the next one!), rolling up our
sleeves to tend to the community gardens, playing
a game of tennis on our beautiful courts, or simply
enjoying a walk through the neighbourhood, June is
shaping up to be a wonderful start to the summer.
We are planning to hold our AGM on June 15 and will be
respecting all public health guidelines (visit the CKE web
site at www.ckecommunity.com for the latest details).
The CKE Community Association AGM is a wonderful
opportunity for community members to join our
community association, either as board members or by
taking on a role on one of our many volunteer committees.
Serving this community as CKE President and as a board
member over the last few years has allowed me to connect
with so many great neighbours and dedicated volunteers.
I cherish these relationships and what we’ve been able to
accomplish together. As I get ready to pass the torch on
to a new president at our upcoming AGM, I encourage all
our neighbours to consider getting involved. While I am
wrapping up my tenure as CKE President, I am excited to
stay on the board and find new ways to contribute.
Everything we do at the CKE Community Association
is made possible through our community volunteers.
Thanks to the Matthews family for their work on our bottle
drives, Robin Daigle for spearheading our annual flower
fundraiser, Dan Kennelly for his work in getting the lights
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
replaced on the hockey rinks, and so many others that
devote their time and energy to community initiatives.
If you’re interested in joining the Board or volunteering
your time to support our community, please reach out
to me, or email ckecommunity@gmail.com. Whether
you can devote a couple of hours a month or would
like to take on a leadership role as part of our board, we
appreciate your time and talent, and would love your
support.

Stay well, stay safe, and stay in touch!


2020 CKE Community Builder Award

October 19, 2020

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 roles of responsibility in our CA. This year the board selected Chris Doyle as the recipient of the award.

Chris joined the board in 2012 as Traffic director and quickly worked up the ranks to Vice President and on be President from 2014-2016. He is retiring and rounding out is 8 years with the board as the Secretary.

During these 8 years he met the challenges and the growing pains of the old hall while the fundraising began to build the new one.
Always game to participate and support the fundraising ideas he was game to play Marty McFly for the Back to the Future themed Wine and Whiskey, ride a tricycle in one of the videos that went viral in the neighbourhood and even step up to play dunk the president at the yearly fall BBQ in the water dunk tank.

These were more of the fun moments during his reign…some of the more contentious and less than fun moments were the BRT project, the Bantrel threat and the challenging hall build. All of which he met with integrity and with the best interest of the community in mind.

Chris has spent hours and hours volunteering on CKE projects and all to the benefit of the community. He took each role he had on the board seriously and was committed to them. Board members always went to him to get answers, guidance and governance as he is such a strong leader and has the ability to look at a situation from all sides and with great clarity.

Under Chris’ stewardship and in the 8 years of him being on the board, a few success to be mentioned are:
~ Approved and voted in the skate spot
~ Upgraded the rink rat tractor
~ Raised 2 Million dollars to build a new hall
~ Building the new hall and the lifecycle of that project
~ Rebuild the garden
~ Replaced the tennis courts

A big thank you to Chris for his years devoted to CKE and for his dedication to bettering the community.
You leave behind a legacy of work you should be proud of and one that the community is very grateful and appreciate of.

If you see them in the community be sure to congratulate our 2020 CKE Community Builder Award winner!
