Come Serve with the McCauley Community League

Hello McCauley! Are you interested in showing some leadership in our community? Or, are you looking for ways to volunteer locally? Consider serving with McCauley’s Community League. Our League works to build and strengthen our community through social events and recreational activities. It hosts conversations on important matters, and works to represent our community’s voice in safety, zoning concerns, or in larger political conversations affecting our neighbourhood. And, as in any community league around the city, our lifeblood is the time and gifts of neighbours just like you.

Our Community League’s Annual General Meeting is coming up mid-April, and we have a few positions on the board opening up. We are looking for someone with some bookkeeping ability to serve as our Treasurer. We need people who are interested to learn how to chair meetings, take minutes, or serve on committees. And, we need people passionate about community life to help plan events and activities that can bring us all together.

If you are interested to get involved, or simply to learn more, please email:
Mike Van Boom at mvanboom@hotmail.com
and Rosalie Gelderman at rlynngelderman@gmail.com
We would be happy to meet you for coffee to explore how you might get involved.
