Come on out to the February meeting and find out what’s going on and coming up in your community.
We’ll be taking about the annual spring clean-up coming up in a couple of months, boarded-up homes in the neighbourhood, and more.
HELPERS + TRUCKS NEEDED – CAN YOU HELP?
We need volunteers to help at the annual spring clean-up event (date to be decided soon, the event usually happens in late May or early June) and are specifically looking for a couple of people with trucks that they could drive in alleys to help other volunteers. If you can help in some way, please get in touch with the Community Association through this page or email HBPMKWinfo@gmail.com .
NOTE on future board positions opening up in September 2020:
We’ll soon be advertising for the following positions which will open up in autumn 2020 –
1) 2 Indoor Coordinators (volunteer board members) – 2 people work together to decide which indoor programs for kids and adults will happen, arrange for instructors, book school gyms for the programs using the school board’s online system; attend monthly meetings except for December and summer – more details to come later this month
2) Rink Maintence (not a board member position) – to prepare the rink by flooding it at the start of winter, and maintain the rink throughout winter as needed. An honorarium is provided. Does not require attendance at monthly board meetings. More details to follow later this month.
AT THE MEETING
You can come to the meeting just for information and to see what’s been going on and what’s coming up, or come out to express interest in being on the board of volunteers. Kids are always welcome at meetings if you need to bring them along, and if you decide to join and be a voting board member, childcare can be
provided if you request it ahead of time.
