President’s Fall Message

I hope that you enjoyed this very hot summer. It is hard to believe that Fall is here. Our Renfrew Park Community Centre staff has been busy putting together the Fall 2018 programs for our Renfrew Community. I invite you to look through the revamped brochure and register for any of the programs or activities.

The Renfrew Park Community Association (RPCA) extends an invitation to all people in our community to join us for our Annual General Meeting – Saturday, November 17, 2018 – 12 noon to 2 pm. This will be the second time we will be holding our meeting on a weekend. The RPCA will be addressing some of our bylaws, brought on by the new Societies Act. We will also be providing audit information for the 2018 fiscal year, electing new board members and addressing the new Joint Operating Agreement (JOA) between the Parks and Recreation board and all Community Associations. Our kitchen renovation plans have been delayed once again. This is due to the high cost of the project.

The RPCA is looking to formulate a plan to address this issue in the Fall. The RPCA is now in process of formulating a plan to renew/renovate our entire Community Centre. We are in the very early stages of planning and strategizing. If you have any thoughts or ideas, please bring them to our Annual General Meeting. If you want to become an RPCA board member, please contact the centre for more information. See you at the Annual General Meeting in November.

Sincerely, Henry Lee,
Renfrew Park Community Association President

President’s Summer Message

I cannot believe that Summer is here…! This would mean that …

The 2018 Summer Brochure is here! I invite you to look through our Renfrew Park Community Centre (RPCC) Brochure. Do not forget to register on-line or in person, for any of our programs.

Remember that the summer day camps for youth and children are very popular! They will fill up fast … so hurry and register soon! Do not forget to check out all of our other programs for Seniors, Adults, Youth and Children. For volunteering opportunities at our RPCC, please contact our Renfrew office staff for opportunities.

Our Renfrew Park Community Association (RPCA) Board of Directors is still in the process of negotiating a new Joint Operating Agreement (JOA) with the City of Vancouver Parks Board. At this time, we are close to finalizing an agreement. The RPCA is also finalizing the process of incorporating the new Societies Act into our RPCA By-laws.

Have a Fun and Safe Summer!

Sincerely,

Henry Lee
