Our first meeting will take place on Tuesday October 20 at Faraday School (405 Parr Street); 7-8:45PM, in the Staff Room (Room 1). Please use the St. John’s Avenue receiving doors entrance – signs will be up guiding you to the staff room.
On the agenda:
- June Picnic
- FRA Financials
- Board Vacancies
- Family Fun Nights & community workshops
- Community News/Report
- Arlington Bridge Study news
- FRA Five Year Plan
We hope that you are able to attend the meeting. Please come with some ideas on how to make our community more vibrant and how the residents association can better serve you.
Once again the residents association will be helping the Faraday School Parent Council with their Peak of the Market “Farm to School” Fundraiser. Money raised will help the Parent Council pay for field trips, books, hot lunches, and much more. This is a great initiative and you’ll get the veggies just in time for Thanksgiving!
The bundles consist of:
Bundle A ($10): 2lbs carrots, 2lbs yellow onions, and 5lbs red potatoes.
Bundle B ($20): 3lbs carrots, 3lbs yellow onions, 1lb parsnips, 10lbs red potatoes, and 1 head of green cabbage
Order deadline is Wednesday September 30. Orders will be ready just before Thanksgiving, and I will deliver orders once they are ready for pickup. If you are interested, please visit the Contact page, fill out the form and in the comments section lets us know which bundle you would like. Monies will be collected before the deadline.
We have submitted a request for our 2015-2016 meetings to be held at Faraday School. The dates are as follows (once approved) and we have moved the meeting date back to Tuesdays:
Tues. October 20, 2015
Tues. January 19, 2016
Tues. March 15, 2016
Tues. June 14, 2016
*Please note that there will NOT be a picnic in 2016 and there will not be a meeting in December due to the holidays.
We’re hoping that the move back to Tuesdays and moving the dates up one week than usual, will bring more residents out to the meetings. Please remember that the meetings can be cancelled last minute; like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter, where we will update in the event of a cancellation.
The residents association is also looking for a Treasurer and a Secretary. Please attend out meeting on October 20 (not an AGM year), to learn more about the positions. All positions with the RA are volunteer based only, it is not a paid position.
All dates have been posted to our Google Calendar and can be found under the heading “Events Calendar”. Agenda items can be submitted one week prior to the meeting; deadline the Friday before the meeting date.
