Aspen Gardens - Annual General Meeting

Board members over the past number of years have been working towards modernizing the Aspen Gardens Bylaws to me more consistent with other community organizations. The EFCL provided the league with a template set of bylaws, which are available to all community leagues upon request.  The template was reviewed by the board and subsequent clerical changes were made to personalize the bylaws to our league.  No significant  changes have been made to the content of the bylaws in relation to the template provided by the EFCL.

9 Reasons to Come to the Aspen Gardens Annual General Meeting
March 5 at Westbrook School

By Sara Flanders-Brown 

Previously the Aspen Gardens Annual General Meeting (AGM) has occurred later in the spring when more of us are looking to escape the house and socialize a little with our neighbours. When we voted last year to change the AGCL fiscal year end December 31, our Annual General Meeting date was moved up to reflect this. So in case you need them, here are 9 reasons to attend our Aspen Gardens Annual General Meeting March 5th at Westbrook School.

    1. It starts at 6 pm with dinner. You won't have your pajamas on yet, but it's late enough that it's an evening out.
    2. Free child minding and supper for the weans. When you arrive with your family, send your children ages 2-12 to the Westbrook gym where volunteers will supervise pizza supper and games until the meeting adjourns.
    3. You will also get supper! Stroll with the other adults into the library for your own dinner. Sit down at a table and enjoy the conversation that doesn't include bathroom talk or why cows can't walk down stairs.
    4. Enjoy learning about your neighbourhood. The AGM begins at 6:30, chaired by the AGCL President Joel Ruff. He's a pretty awesome guy, likes big hugs.
    5. You'll learn something about your neighbourhood. Maybe it'll be about the interesting things happening around you all the time and that you can be a part of.
    6. You will have an opportunity to bring concerns that you might have for our neighbourhood forward. And we'll listen. Not just because Joel will make us but also because that's what good neighbours do.
    7. You will see something you want to be a part of. 
    8. We even thought of door prizes. There will be draws for three $100 door prizes throughout the evening donated by local businesses.
    9. After claiming your little ones in the gym to head home, take one last look through the school Lost and Found bins for your children's missing right gloves. Only the rights... 

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Aspen Gardens Community League Annual General Meeting.

Any questions regarding the AGM can be directed to communications@aspengardens.ca. It's helpful if you are bringing your family to RSVP programs@aspengardens.ca with numbers. Thanks!
