FALL INTO (free) FUDGE with your Community Association

Win yourself some fudge by telling us about a good neighbour or something you like about your neighbourhood.  For residents of Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair and Kelsey-Woodlawn.

************
FALL INTO FUDGE Random Draw RULES: In order to have your name entered into the random draw for homemade fudge, all you have to do is:

A) on this page, tell us about something nice/helpful a neighbour or someone in your neighbourhood has done for you (write it in a funny poem or just tell us straight up, be as creative as you like) OR
B) tell us about something you like or enjoy in your neighbourhood (person, place or thing – it’s up to you).

* Have fun and let the rest of us know about some of the good happening around you in your neighbourhood!
*************

WHO?
All entrants must of course live in Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair or KelseyWoodlawn. The volunteer’s fudge taxi only delivers to these 3 neighbourhoods.

WHEN?
FALL INTO FUDGE starts now and entries will be accepted until Wednesday, September 26th at 3 pm. All names will be put into a random draw, with the winner’s name being chosen at the Community Association general meeting on Wednesday at 6:30 pm at Ecole Henry Kelsey. The winner’s fudge will not be at the meeting, but if you attend the meeting, you can share our other meeting snacks.

HOW?
Winner’s name will be posted on this page next Wednesday evening, and you can then send a private message with your address or a phone number we can reach you at, to have the fudge delivered to your home the next day.

WHAT IS IN THE FUDGE?
There are no nuts added to the fudge, but it is NOT made in a nut-free kitchen. There is also milk in the fudge, and flour. Fudge should be kept in the fridge in the unlikely event it is not eaten up right away, and can also be kept in the freezer for sneaky midnight snacks for up to 6 months.

Looking for a SECRETARY for volunteer board

sayings694

Can you help?

The volunteer Community Association that represents your 3 neighbourhoods needs a new Secretary asap! Could this be you? We’d really like to complete our member board so we can carry on doing what we need to do for neighbourhood programming, events, and future projects.

Can you help your community this year as a volunteer Secretary with your Community Association? Email us at hbpmkwinfo@gmail.com for more information. Better yet, if you can, attend the Wednesday, September 26th general meeting at 6:30 at Ecole Henry Kelsey to find out more or put your name forward for the position.

WHY?  Volunteering with your neighbourhood Community Association not only helps your community directly, but can help you build your resume for work, gain new experiences, and meet new people. And did we mention there is always something tasty to eat at monthly meetings? It’s true!

WHAT?  The Secretary position involves attending once-a-month meetings on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm at Ecole Henry Kelsey (16 Valens Drive) and typing up the minutes of our meetings (what is discussed and decided on, votes, motions, etc). We do not meet during the summer months.
