President's Summer Message
It is hard to believe that I have been
President of the Sunset Community
Association for three full years, but that
is indeed the case. We had our AGM
last month, and that means that we will
be electing a new Executive Committee
at our May meeting, which includes a
new President. It has been a pleasure serving in this capacity
(and I will miss it), but it is now time for someone else to take
over this position.
Let me take this opportunity to thank our good staff and group
of volunteers for all of their hard work and support over the past
years. I am proud to say that, despite current distractions,
our group continues to work well together to produce quality,
affordable programs, workshops and activities for all ages and
interest groups. Great work, everyone!
I would also like to welcome two new staff – Lori Wager is the
new Programmer at Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre, and
Marina Ribatto is the new, 2nd Programmer at the Centre. I am
confident that they will settle in quickly and that the transition
for both will be seamless.
Sunset Community Association has not been part of the group
of Associations negotiating with the Park Board regarding a
new Joint Operating Agreement, for various reasons. While we
are willing to discuss a new, updated agreement, we feel that
the process that is being undertaken by the Park Board and
the negotiating Associations is not in the best interest of our
membership or our community. We will continue to hold firm in
our resolve to do whatever is necessary to maintain the system
that enables us to follow our mandate, and provide the best
possible system of recreation delivery to you – our members.
Summer always seems to be the shortest season of all, but
do yourself a favour and look through this brochure – you will
certainly find something that interests you, a family member
or friend at the Sunset Community Centre Complex, made
up of the Sunset Community Centre, Sunset Ice Rink, and Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre.
Visit one or all three of our
facilities – we will put a smile on your face.
