All Members … Brief Special Meeting Called … Aug 8th at 5pm

We are asking all members to attend a VERY brief meeting on August 8th. Lots of people will be on vacation which is why it is imperative that any one who can come … come.

We passed the new ByLaws at last years’ October AGM and submitted them to the province for adoption. They had 2 small adjustment requests

  • any decision about new bylaws needs 75% of the vote to pass (changed from 2/3rds) in section 11c (page22)
  • it needed to be clearer on how members could request that directors AND executive directors be removed from office so we stated both types of “directors and executive officers” instead of “directors” in section 6.5 (page 10)

The whole set of updated bylaws (July edits requested by the province) are at this link. To compare to the bylaws submitted and passed last fall at the AGM are at this link. They are the same except sections 11c and 6.5.

Easter Thanks Deer Run Teen Leadership Club and Volunteers

Thanks to all the Grade 8 Leadership club and the Jr. Grade 5-6 team for all the planning and fundraising. This year’s teaching point for our club was fundraising. They all didn’t want to do it but by the time 1 hour rolled by, 3 girls raised $1200+ cash from our awesome community donors. “Here – let me do this one” was the last few comments I remember hearing. A total of $1900 in donated gifts and services was raised – PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS (click the pic for bigger view – a local red logo’ed bank was not allowed to post online)

135 kids and just as many parents came for an Egg Hunt, carnival games, crafts and concession. A few key adults Jana, Mike B, Cherise and Sue pulled this together. MANY THANKS. What a great community.

President’s Message March 2017

Looks like our ice on skating rink is done for the year with the nice weather we received. I would like to thank the rink ratz for all their hard work this year and Brian S. and Donovan for coming up with the new Zamboni attachment for our tractor. Any of you that came out to the skate party would have noticed a smoother ice than we have previously had.We are having the Fun Money Casino to March 25. We are still looking for additional items for door prizes and silent auction items, if you or your company can spare items please contact Sue at the centre. Continue reading

President’s Message Feb 2017

Kids Christmas Party, Family Skate Party, Casino, Easter Events … busy times.

By now we would have had the free Family Skate Party… I am assuming we had good weather and were able to have it this year. Last year it was a puddle and a little warm for the ice. Thanks to all the volunteers, the rink rats and our staff for helping out.

Rink Rats – what can I say? The crews have been doing a great job, the ice is looking good. Thank you to Brian Moule for keeping us organized and everyone has been working hard to get the large amounts of snow removed from both rink and parking lot.

More fun… Plans are underway for another Fun Money Casino for Mar 25. This is a great event that many of you have probably enjoyed in the past. I know Karina and I sure have. We will have music, special drinks, lots of prizes, Silent auction items etc. Our Fun Money Casino is a good fund raiser for us – so please invite your friends and neighbors. If you are in a position within a company that could donate, we are looking for donations for prizes and silent auction items, please contact the front desk.

Advance Notice – Community Clean up tentatively ( upon city approval) is set for Sept 9, 2017

Thank you to Richard Gotfried and Peter Demong for donations to kids’ Xmas party.

I see we had some reworks again News Years Eve that lasted about 1⁄2 an hour, thank you for who was responsible for the show. Not saying it wasn’t, but please make sure in future that area is cleaned up after.

We are looking at replacing lights around rink. Wondering if there is someone in area that might be able to donate bucket truck time to help us do this. We are able to o er a Tax deductible receipt for value of the use, and remember we are able to o er that for donations in future if that helps on your taxes.

That’s it for this letter, thanks again for reading and see you at the Free Family Skate Party.

Presidents Message – November 2016

Hope everyone had a great Halloween.

This is just a short message as I have been tardy working long hours and been for most part going 7 days a week. Thank you Peter for the bbq you through and the cheque for memberships that were handed out there on behalf of yourself and sponsors. Original 16 brewing company has teamed up with Filos and have chosen Deer Run to receive $.25 from every original 16 beer sold at Filos. Remember our AGM is Nov 16, we will be redoing our bylaws that e ects us all. Please review them online at our website or copies are available at community centre prior to meeting so meeting can go as smooth as possible. This is a very important meeting so your attendance would be appreciated. Susan Tam has been doing a great job with our fb page and social media, but is getting to much with everything else we have her helping with. We are looking for a volunteer that would like to gel us with our social media presence, fb and Twitter being the top two. Please leave your back at the centre or send an email to Susan if you’re interested. Hope everyone has a good Nov and will have dates for kids xmas party in December’s message.
