The Lakeview Community Association is a strong and robust organization, but things haven’t always been that way. Throughout the past decade, the LCA has struggled to retain volunteers and frequently had executive positions vacant. Many people in the neighbourhood did not know that we even existed. Thanks to our past chairperson Mark Dyck, who created this website and also our facebook page ,we have been able to reach out to our community in other ways besides our Hill Avenue sign and seasonal newsletters.We currently have a great group on our executive with a round table full of people at every meeting (at our September meeting, we almost ran out of chairs). With a full executive we are able to deliever top notch community programming to the community and plan amazing events such as this past family fun day.
However, we still need your help to bring the Lakeview Community to its full potential. There are plenty of opportunities to help out, and you are more then welcome to attend our monthly meetings. If you can’t make the meetings, you can help us out in a simpler ways: Tell your friends and neighbours about this website. Casually mention to them that they should like our facebook page and sign up for email updates about what the LCA is doing. The more people we are able to connect, the stronger our community will become.
Check out the dates for our monthly meetings and see if you are able to attend. We promise there will be chairs.
Every October, the LCA holds its famous Annual General Meeting. This year, the meeting will take place on Monday, October 17 , 7:00 PM at Lakeview School. This is a great opportunity to come and find out about all of the things we have been up to over the past year, and also meet the people who run the programs in your community. If you are thinking “Oh, great a long and boring meeting full of snobby executive board members” you could not be more wrong. Our meetings are informal and are full of fun and friendly community-minded people. We also probably hold a world record for “fastest annual general meeting.” Bring your friends, bring your neighbours, bring anyone who has an idea they would like to share! Also, For only $5 you can purchase a membership and are eligible to vote for stuff. Will refreshments be provided? Come and find out!
