The community association's Annual General Meeting will be held Tuesday, November 26th at 7:00pm in the Hugh Cairns School. Councillor Loewen will be in attendance, as well as many members of the board, as elections will be held for various positions whose terms are ending (see the Events page for more details).
Community involvement in the AGM is very important. You are able to review the proposed budget for the year, elect your new board members (or volunteer for a position), and hear how the finances were managed over the previous year.
We encourage you to attend and look forward to seeing you there!
NOTE – the board positions up for re-election that were listed on the Events page previously were incorrect. The correct positions have been updated.
Just a reminder that, effective November 1st, the City will be switching its garbage collection of the roll-out carts to a bi-weekly schedule. Only during the Christmas season from December 16th to December 31st does the schedule return to a weekly pickup. Please recycle what you can in your blue roll-out carts and take your bottles and cans to your nearest SARCAN depot to keep unnecessary items out of the landfill. We can all do our part!
If you want an alternative to just throwing away your pumpkins and orange bags of leaves after Halloween, take them to either of the City's compost depots located at McOrmond Drive (just north of 8th Street) and on the corner of Highway 7 and 11th Street. The depots are open from 9:00am to 6:00pm until November 8, 2013. The orange bags can't be composted, so please remember to take those home with you and reuse or throw in the garbage.
Do you know an individual or group who would enjoy earning up to a $1,000 honorarium for maintaining the St. Philip's rink for the upcoming winter? The APCCA has a rink coordinator position open and is in need of an individual or group who would be willing to volunteer to help us out.
The job duties include flooding the ice, shovelling, and light maintenance. As the coordinator, you will also hold an executive position on our community association and should attend our monthly meetings to discuss any issues with the rink.
Your time will help provide the rink for our neighbourhood to enjoy during the winter. The time commitment varies and is dependent on the weather. Do you remember how much snow we received last year?! We need individuals who can commit to clearing the ice after each snowfall, whether we get snow every day or once a week!
We are looking for an individual or group who is interested and passionate about sports and community involvement. Without you, running the St. Philip's rink will be difficult this year.
For more information, please email email@example.com to learn more.
