Hi <<First Name>>,

We would like to communicate a reminder about an important event happening in your community:

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

The Ellerslie Community League 2016 AGM is taking place at Grace Point Church this Saturday, November 19, 2016.

Everyone who lives in our community is welcome and encouraged to join us.

We’re starting with a free catered meal at 5:30 p.m., followed by the AGM at 6:30 p.m. While the AGM is going on, we’ll be showing a supervised movie for the kids in another room. Once the AGM business has been taken care of, we’re hosting a community forum, where residents can share their ideas on how to make our community an even better place to live.

You don’t need a league membership to attend; however, you do need one to have a vote, and we need at least ten voting members there who aren’t part of the board in order to hold the meeting. If you’d like to purchase a membership ($25 for the whole family for the year), you can contact Christine Lim (, buy one at the meeting, or buy one online at

Please contact Alicia Lemaire (  if you have any questions. This event is a great opportunity to get involved with your community and meet your neighbours, and we hope to see lots of people there!
