We’re very happy to say that many volunteers stepped forward at our recent September AGM (annual general meeting) and helped us fill the open positions for the coming 2016-2107 year. It’s going to be a great year with a nice balance of former and new volunteers making up the community association board. That being said, we always need and will welcome more volunteers (especially Members At Large), so please join us if you can!
The new board for the coming year consists of the following people:
President (Chair) – Diane Bentley
Past President (Past Chair) – Anna Cole
Secretary – Raelene Purdy
Treasurer – Jessica Mackey
Indoor Coordinators – Margaret Johnson, Shelley Marshall
Newsletter – Jessica Mackey, Eric Wilkinson

Members At Large (helping out where needed and/or initiating new activities/events) – Diane Hamilton, Tyler Holowaty (+ rink), Michael Mackey (+ rink), Suzanne Nakagawa, Dave Newton, Yi Zhang, Brad Ziprick (+ rink)

Thank you to everyone who helps to make our community a better place to live, work and play!
Everyone is welcome! Come on out to the first community association meeting of the year:
Wednesday, September 28th from 7 – 8:30 pm
Location: Ecole Henry Kelsey, 16 Valens Drive
This is our monthly Community Association meeting. Come meet our new executive and help us get started on some new fundraising efforts, events, and fun times.
New members welcome and always appreciated – come on out and find out how you can help make your community an even better place!
There has been some interest in creating a community garden in our neighbourhood. Proposals are due December 1st for gardens for next year – that’s pretty short notice, but if there are people out there very interested in getting things moving, the forms are not too complicated. A location (possibly Henry Kelsey Park) and a layout are the basic requirements.
Want to see this happen? Contact us! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put you in touch with our Member-at-Large Diane that wants to get things moving.
Repairs at Outdoor Community Rink in Henry Kelsey Park on Valens Drive
You’ll notice a lot of new boards at the outdoor rink this winter. Volunteers in the community are getting together on a number of weekends this fall to remove and replace rink boards. If you’d like to help or are interested in helping with shoveling during the winter, please send us a message on this page or the community facebook page.
The rink is open to anyone in the community during the winter. It is maintained by community members, and extra hands are always needed and appreciated!
Thank you so much to everyone who is helping get the rink ready for us all to use!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our community BBQ and Annual General Meeting (AGM) a fun day for all!
It was so nice to see new faces along with familiar ones at the BBQ/AGM today. We could not have asked for better weather! Thank you so much to the fantastic youth group for setting up the soccer cage, and to Deanna and Jasmine with the giant Jenga game and other fun stuff from Mayfair Library. Also thanks to Evan for taking care of the bouncy castle, and Elden for all your help at the BBQ with Bob.
We also want to give a warm welcome to newcomers Tara, Eric, Rachelle, Raelene, and Diane. They have volunteered to help with the community newsletter, soccer, the secretary position, and in a member-at-large capacity. Along with new additions to the community association, member Anna Cole has moved up to President, Janet Jackson is Rink Coordinator, and Robert Rudachyk and Dave Newton have moved to a Member at Large position. We’re happy that our other members are staying with us for another year, and you can read the list of volunteers here: https://hudsonbayparkmayfairkelsey.org/executive/
We still need a volunteer for Website Coordinator (simply keep this community website updated with current community-related news), so please contact us if you can help: https://hudsonbayparkmayfairkelsey.org/executive/descriptions/
We’re looking forward to a new year, with the first community association meeting being held on Wednesday, September 24th at 7pm, Ecole Henry Kelsey (in the staff room) at 16 Valens Drive. Open to any residents in the Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair and Kelsey-Woodlawn neighbourhoods.
Please join us at one of our monthly meetings, and contact us any time if you’d like more information on community programs and events, as well as community volunteer opportunities in your neighbourhood.
A big thank you to everyone who joined the Community Clean Up today in A.H. Browne Park! We had a fantastic turnout and were able to clean up the park and surrounding streets and alleys. The clean up was followed by lunch in the park while the kids had fun blowing bubbles and playing in the playground.
It was great to see familiar faces and meet new ones, and we hope to see you all out again next year!
