CA Volunteers hard at work in 2018!


THIS IS WHAT YOUR WARD 10 COMMUNITY ASSOCIATIONS HAVE BEEN UP TO THIS YEAR.

In 2018, the tremendous collective accomplishments of CA volunteers in Erindale/Arbor Creek, Evergreen, Sutherland/Forest Grove, Silverspring and Willowgrove. It’s incredible what you pulled off.  You enriched your neighbourhoods by:

  • building 2 new rinks & rink shacks in Willowgrove & Evergreen- a VERY BIG JOB;
  • maintaining 5 outdoor rinks- Sutherland Forest Grove CA looks after 3 of these;
  • offering 200+ indoor programs- including hiring & managing dozens of instructors, booking space, and attending extra meetings to organize shared programs with nearby CAs;
  • recruiting, supporting and training dozens & dozens of volunteer coaches so that thousandsof kids could play soccer, basketball and softball;
  • informing neighbours about local events & issues through beautiful websites, newsletters & FB pages;
  • organizing & inviting neighbours to free outdoor events, including 600+ at a BBQ at the Forestry Farm;
  • responsibly managing tens of thousands of dollars, and ensuring its done right with financial reviews;
  • managing thousands of transactions on spiffy new online registration sites;
  • working with provincial & municipal bureaucrats to access funding & keep incorporation status active;
  • addressing neighbourhood concerns about traffic, park & road maintenance, recycling & more…
  • attending extra civic meetings to share your expertise about busing, traffic flow & new road design; and
  • taking time out of your life to attend monthly meetings, sharing your ideas & passion for community!

These volunteers not only care about community, but actively work to make it a better place for everyone. Thanks again!!!
