Dear Community Members,
What an amazing year it has been for our community and West Point Grey Community Centre. We’ve accomplished a lot, and are looking forward to even more exciting programs, special events and workshops in 2019!
One of the highlights from 2018 is the launch of West Point Grey Community Centre’s electronic newsletter. If you haven’t seen it yet, please visit our homepage where you will find a sign-up link. All of our current Association members also receive the e-newsletter on a monthly basis. It’s one of the many approaches we are using to keep in touch with you and spread the word about our Community Centre.
This past September, West Point Grey Community Association’s Board of Directors organized a Strategic Planning Session to shape the future direction of the Association and Community Centre. The highly productive session produced new mission and value statements that will guide our activities and strategic directions.
We are also approaching the time when a new Board of Directors will be elected to represent the Association. Interested parties are encouraged to apply by submitting a paper or electronic application form. The new Board will be announced at our Annual General Meeting in February 2019. For more information and to apply, please visit westpointgrey.org/about-wpgcc and click on “Board Members” and then “Board of Directors Nomination Form.”
In 2019, we are continuing to spread the word about the City of Vancouver’s Leisure Access Program in an effort to make our programs more affordable to everyone. Based on financial need, the Leisure Access Program offers patrons of the West Point Grey Community Centre, and other participating community centres, a 50% discount on one program per person per season, i.e., Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer, in our case. To learn more about this program, please search online for “Leisure Access Program Vancouver” or contact us at: 604.257.8140 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall 2018 brought with it new special events, including the highly popular All the Trees Walk in September with our Artist in Residence, Holly Schmidt, and the Point Grey and Aberthau Mansion walking tour in October with the Vancouver Heritage Foundation. This year promises even more events and excitement. We will be launching a new Fieldhouse Residency and welcome the artists who will be operating out of the Aberthau Artist Studios, located on the third floor of Aberthau Mansion.
Thank you for your patronage and support. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at our Centre.
West Point Grey Community Association
