Metchosin Community Association to hold its Annual General Meeting on June 22

On Friday, June 22, at 7pm, the Metchosin Community Association (MCA) will hold its Annual General Meeting and will reflect on one of its most successful years.

The purpose of the Community House is to encourage people to come together, enjoy their common interests, share their experiences and their stories, build relationships and build community. The degree to which this has been achieved is perhaps reflected in part by how busy the House is. There is scarcely a morning, afternoon, or evening when the House isn’t humming with some gathering or other. Indeed, it is getting difficult to find an open slot to book a new activity.

The House is looking good and, financially, the MCA has probably never been in better shape. At the same time, it has reduced most rental rates and any program, not just those initiated by the MCA, which is open and free to all the community without a membership requirement enjoys free rental. So, users of the House have had a break too.

All this will be reported on at the AGM, which will also include the election of a new Board, including a new President, recognition of retiring directors, and some possible modest upgrades to the facilities at the Community House.

Only members can fully participate at the AGM. Fortunately, memberships are still at the amazingly low level of ten dollars per year. It is hoped that many community members will want to attend the AGM of their community’s association and, if not already members, will phone 250-478-5155, week days between 9 am and 1 pm, to join the MCA and participate in the AGM on June 22.
