Boyle Street Community League Update

AGM on April 30

April is the month the Boyle Street Community League enjoys our Annual General Meeting! April 30 is your chance to join the BSCL, elect a new board, join volunteer committees – and have a few snacks! Meet your neighbours when we open the doors at 6:30 p.m. for displays and socializing. The meeting will begin at 7. If you are interested in standing for the board, call our office at (780) 426-9264 and leave your name with Mimi, our co-ordinator. Someone from the nominating committee will get back to you.

In other news: Alf White has stepped down from the board and his role as President. Alf has been a stalwart community advocate and defender for many years and we all thank him for his many contributions to Boyle Street, and wish him all the best.

We’ve renewed our agreement with Commonwealth Rec Centre and your BSCL membership card will again get you free swimming and use of the recreation centre during Community Swim time, Sundays from 1-3 p.m. Hint: once you are in the facility, you can use all the fitness facilities until closing time!

Remember, this year your community league membership is free – yes, you read right, FREE! – which gives you access to many programs at community league rates, not just at BSCL but at any community league. At BSCL we have many free programs, and we often negotiate free spaces in city-wide programs hosted at our community centre, like kids’ basketball or art classes. Call the office for more information.

You may have seen some news about our community centre in the media. Check our BSCL Facebook for details, but don’t worry, this discussion with the City won’t have any effect on programs and bookings any time soon.

Looking forward to seeing you at our AGM!
