Happy New Years Greenfield!
What an amazing New Years Eve we had. Thanks to everyone who made the time and joined us for the unveiling of our 50th anniversary mural – I hope you were all as awed and inspired as I am. We hope to be mounting our mural in the spring on the wall facing the playground so that all our community artists can enjoy their contribution to our community for many years to come. I have to give a huge thank you to Matt, Ashley and the whole No Frills family who sponsored our New Years Eve party and all their support in planning and making it happy. We are so lucky to have you in our community!
Despite the end of the holiday season, there are still lots of fun things happening around our community this winter including Shinny Hockey on Saturday mornings at 10am at the Greenfield rink. Come on out and skate with us and remember that all players under 18 require a helmet and a waiver. Outdoor soccer registration runs from January 15 – February 28th, more information can be found on the Community webpage. And stay tuned and join us for a glass at our Saint Patrick’s Day Event in March.
As many of you are aware, Greenfield has recently experienced a spike in random thefts and suspicious activities. In response to these events, the Community League Board has added a Neighbourhood Watch position who will be leading our community’s engagement on keeping our neighbourhood safe and welcoming. We are thrilled to have Kenny Wurtak on board and to encourage everyone who has questions or concerns to join us as at our January 31st AGM at the Community Hall. Our community becomes safer when we come together, when we get to know our neighbours and continue to take pride in and to participate in our community. So, despite the cold weather, despite the end of the holidays, I encourage you all to get out, come skating, walk to Petrolia, meet your neighbours and continue to share the warmth of community.
As always, don’t forget to purchase your Community League Membership for 2018/19. Your membership gives you a vote at our AGM and other great benefits. Memberships are $30 for individuals, $15 for seniors, $25 for senior couples and $50 for families. Memberships can be purchased online or at our AGM on the 31st.
I can be reached at email@example.com and look forward to seeing everyone at the AGM!
After serving as Vice president, Amanda was nominated to be president in 2018.
