Fall 2017 Glabar Park Gazette

Find the Fall 2017 Glabar Park Community Alliance Gazette posted on the website. It contains information on our AGM, to be held Tuesday September 19, as well as Summer Fun Day info and the upcoming rink season.

Please note that we do not currently have volunteers to distribute the Gazette like we did in previous years. If you can volunteer to distribute the Gazette on your street (or more), please contact glabarparkca@gmail.com and we’ll coordinate getting printed versions of the Gazette in your hands. Thank you!

2016 AGM

Thank you to all the community members who came out last night to the AGM! It was a great opportunity to engage with you on your volunteer board’s efforts to promote community well-being and togetherness. Mark Taylor was really helpful and enlightening as he answered all your civic questions and concerns.

I would like to thank again the many volunteers who keep our programs running: Fun Day organizers and operators, Rink supervisors and Gazette delivery teams. Thank you for your continued efforts, everyone really appreciates your time, energy and efforts.

Moving forward, your GPCA Board has some new faces this year: Sean Kirkwood (President), Adam Norman (Vice-President), Ravi Sandhi (Treasurer) and Brian Laffin (Secretary). We also have new and returning Directors to continue building the ties that keep our community the best place to live.
