President’s Update

Hello everyone, we hope you and your loved ones are well and hopeful as summer has rolled in and we are out and about safely enjoying our beautiful community, our City and the wider areas that we are able to visit.

2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM): “Thank you” to all who joined us for our virtual AGM held June 10th.  Congratulations to Tony J, Bill Mc, Merv B and Bill M who won the draw for Tims cards.  We appreciate the time residents took to participate in our AGM and we hope the meeting was informative.  We welcome the Directors who were voted into office, including Tim Hoy who is a new member of the Board.  Directors’ reports were provided to the registered attendees and are posted on the SACA website at http://scenicacresca.ca/about-saca/agms/  There, you will also find the questions and comments posed to and answered by the Board on items of interest in our community.  We appreciate the time Erin H, Yvonne M, Alex M, Bob A and Ray H took to submit questions and feedback to the Board.  We also appreciate the time our MP, Pat Kelly and our MLA, the Honourable Sonya Savage took to provide an update and field questions from AGM participants.  We welcome your feedback on how we can improve our AGM process or anything else we do, so please reach out with your ideas to https://form.jotform.com/scenicgm/tell-saca

Volunteerism, engagement and community building: It has been noted multiple times in the Review, including above, that community feedback, volunteerism and engagement are pursued, welcome and valued by the SACA Board.  While the oft used adage “many hands make light work” certainly has proven to be true, we also believe that an array of voices and perspectives allows us to better understand what work should be considered.  The SACA Board makes every effort to make decisions in accord with the community’s needs.  Such decisions are best arrived at when we receive input and feedback from the community.  Community interest can be gauged by participation in programs offered by SACA or events (e.g. the upcoming community picnic & outdoor movie).  Also, a sharing of ideas on upcoming work (e.g. a community garden) will help us to properly plan and work on new community assets.  In summary, decisions will best reflect the community’s wishes when the Board has community feedback to consider.  So, whether you wish to actively or passively participate, please reach out to us at https://form.jotform.com/scenicgm/tell-saca
