2021 Builder’s Award: Dawn Messer & Dan Kennelly

September 1, 2021

Dawn Messer has been a board member for the CKE Community association for nearly 10 years, and in that time she has been the driving force behind so much of what makes our community outstanding. Not only was she instrumental in getting our hall built, but she has also been a trailblazer in clearing the path and showing the way for all of us on projects like our major social events of the year, our playground space, and our most significant fundraisers. Most recently, she has been the VP on our board and the power behind getting all of the last projects in our hall completed – from sound baffling and donor walls to basketball hoops and emergency repairs on the bold sign, we have Dawn to thank for everything. Dawn has served as a leader in our community, a mentor to our board members and a guiding light to all of our CKE neighbours as we strive towards creating a vibrant, connected and active community. Congratulations Dawn!

Dan Kennelly has also served as a board member for many years, in a variety of director roles. After stepping down from the board last year, Dan has continued to work daily on supporting the infrastructure of our community space in ways both large and small. I think it is safe to say, though I know he would never say it himself, that without Dan we would not have the rinks, the hall facility, the upgrades post construction, the rinks, or any of the smooth operating procedures that we’re able to enjoy today. Dan is always available to serve his community with his incredible insight and ability to solve even the most complex problems (from collapsing retaining walls to busted mailboxes), and we’ve been so lucky to have him as a leader supporting the CKE board and the CKE community association through the years.

President’s Message – September 2021

June 12, 2021

Happy September!
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
socialcke@gmail.com; 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 ckehallrentals@gmail.com if this interests you. If anyone wants to chat at any time, please feel free to reach out via email at daniel@dkboutiquerealestate.com.
