President’s Winter Message
Hello Renfrew Community,
This will be my last presentation to the brochure. My term as the Renfrew Park Community Association President is coming to an end on November 17, 2018. I invite the people from the Renfrew Community to be a part of our Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM event will be held at the Renfrew Community Centre on Saturday, November 17, 2018, from 12 noon to 2:00 pm. A light lunch will be provided and door prizes will be drawn at random times.
During my two year term, I have seen many changes happening in and around our Community Centre. Some of the changes include the hiring of our New Recreation Supervisor, Marian Gardner, the almost completed revitalization of our Renfrew Ravine, the increase of property development which is increasing our population density, the signing of the Joint Operating Agreement between the Board of Parks and Recreation and our Renfrew Park Community Association(RPCA), the introduction of a new British Columbia Societies Act which governs how our Association and Directors can operate within the Community, and on October 20, 2018, Civic elections took place in Vancouver. We now have a New Mayor, City Councillors, Parks Board Commissioners and Vancouver School Board Trustees. All these changes can have an effect on how our community centre operates.
One of the RPCA goals is to make Renfrew Park Community Centre a better place for all to enjoy and participate in Recreational activities. Presently, the Board of Directors is in the process of inquiring about revitalizing our old kitchen. We are looking into putting new glass basketball backboards in the gymnasium. Inquiring to refit Room 110 with new windows and a good ventilation system to control the temperature as needed.
Our Renfrew Community Centre is forever changing. I invite you to be a Renfrew Park Association Director or be a member of our Program Committee. You can and will make a difference for your Renfrew Community! Please talk to one of our current Directors’ or ask our fabulous centre Staff for more information.
In closing, I would like to thank… all the Staff, our Adult and Youth volunteers, and especially our Board of Directors for making Renfrew Community Centre a fabulous and safe place for all to enjoy their Recreation activities. Please continue to register for any of the programs, activities, and events that the Renfrew centre has to offer. Have a safe and fun 2019 Winter Season!
