Hi <<First Name>>,

Hello Ellerslie Community League!

In November we had our Annual General Meeting, and we are very happy to announce our new Board Members that have joined our team! Josh Powell has volunteered for the Civics Director position, Kim Doucet is our new Neighbourhood Watch Director, and Scott MacKinnon will be taking over the Communications Director role!  We are very excited to have them all with us.  We want to thank past Civics Director Jerry Pasternak,  past Neighbourhood Watch Director Irfan Chaudhry, and past Communications Director Barry Obondo, for their contributions to our community! We will miss you!

Though we are thrilled with the outcome of the elections, we are disappointed with the low turn out for community members at our AGM.  We want to make our AGM as well attended and engaging as we possibly can, so please send us your feedback on what YOU would like to see at future meetings that would encourage you to attend.  Remember that this Board serves our community, but without your support we cannot function.  If you want to get involved, we still have a couple of positions left on the board to fill: Sports Director and Programs Director.  Contact Alicia at if you want to volunteer!

The Board takes a well deserved break over the holiday season to reflect and relax, and prepare for the year ahead.  We wish you all the best of the season, and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!

Alicia Lemaire
President, Ellerslie Community League
