Winter President’s Message

Please take the time to browse through our Winter brochure. You can register on line or in person for the programs and activities offered at Renfrew Community Centre.

I invite you to attend our Renfrew Park Community Association’s (RPCA) 2017 Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM will be held on Saturday, November 18 at 12 noon. The meeting will take place at Renfrew Community Centre. The agenda items will include voting on changes to our bylaws, election of new board members, providing year-end financial statements and drawing for prizes. Lunch will also be provided at the conclusion of the meeting.

Our RPCA Board of Directors has been very busy negotiating a new Joint Operating Agreement (JOA) with the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation. Concurrently, the directors have had to revise our bylaws to meet the requirements of the New Societies Act of British Columbia. I am very optimistic that we will have a new JOA agreement before year end.

If you would like to volunteer for the RPCA board of directors, be a part of our Program Committee or just volunteer at Renfrew Community Centre, please talk to one of our fantastic staff at the centre for more information. Have a great Winter season!

Sincerely,

Henry Lee, President RPCA

Fall 2017 President’s 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 2017 programs for our Renfrew Community. I invite you to look through the 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 18, 2017 (12:00pm- 2:00pm). This will the first time we will be holding our meeting on a weekend. The RPCA will be addressing some changes to our bylaws, brought on by the new Societies Act. We will also be providing audit information for the 2016 fiscal year, electing new board members and addressing the new Joint Operating Agreement (JOA) between the Parks and Recreation board and all Community Associations. The JOA is very close to becoming signed by many Associations. We anticipate a final outcome by September 2017.

Did you notice a new item in the pool? The RPCA donated a new chair lift to provide assistance to any person requiring help into the pool. Pool staff have been trained to assist.

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.

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 a RPCA board member, please contact the centre for more information. See you at the Annual General Meeting in November.

Sincerely,

Henry Lee, President RPCA
