CARD Night

Thank-you Volunteers!
Thank-you to all the Volunteers who volunteers at the center for
cards, Halloween, Christmas, grass cutting, snow blowing etc. Your time and effort is
appreciated! If you are interested in volunteering for an event or getting involved with the
board please contact one of the board members to discuss.

In an effort to keep our community safe the center will follow the provincial COVID guidelines. Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies are available.

In recent years we have offered a drive-up trick-or-treating event at the community center. Children may participate outside the decorated community center between 5-6pm on Halloween evening. Please feel free to offer Trick or Treating at your home if you wish!

Register in advance so we can ensure we make enough treat bags for everyone! Text or call Sara at 902-916-3476 by 2pm, Sunday, October 29th. (texting preferred!)

Everyone can lend a hand & help make this a magical, spooky evening for the children!

  • Community members can drop off treats Saturday & Sunday (Oct 28 & 29th) by 1pm at the center and volunteers will create treat bags.
  • It would be lovely if pumpkins(carved or uncarved) were dropped off to be displayed!

AED at the Center
The Community Center has installed an automated external defibrillator (AED). It’s an easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock(defibrillation) to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. The device is on the wall in the entrance of the Center and can be accessed by persons with a door entry or through a call to 911 (the AED is registered with 911 and EMS. They can provide a door code for emergency access if the AED is needed).

The AGM is held each year in December and is open to everyone. The treasurer’s report, plans for the coming year and election of executive and board members occur. This year’s meeting will be Monday, December 5th at 7pm. New and interested members are encouraged and welcome!

Current executive and board consist of Don Maynard(president), Kellie Saarloos(rental and gym access coordinator), Clayton Smith(treasurer), Sara Courtney(secretary) and board members Rochelle Sullivan, Trudy MacLeod, Jessica McKenna, Dale Amundson, Dan Amundson, and Sandra Graham. If you have any questions please contact Don Maynard 886-2071 or Sara Courtney 916-3476
