Marmora & Area Curling Club - Membership Update – Nov 2020
Hello fellow curlers,
As you know, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel this curling season. But, we are still working behind the scenes to prepare for next season and to keep the club running between now and then.
As you may recall from our previous communications, we held our annual general meeting in October and elected board members for this cycle. There are, however, some vacant positions that we still need to fill to round out the board of directors.
Our new Treasurer, Neil McQueen, has been working on updates to the financial management processes and in order to implement them, we need to amend our current bylaws. To that end, we will be holding a special members meeting on Sunday December 13th at 2pm at the curling club to approve these changes.
We are still looking for financial assistance to help us keep the club running until next season. If you haven’t yet contributed your $50 membership dues, please consider it. In conjunction with the special members meeting on December 13th, we will also be holding an open house to showcase the recently completed basement renovations. At the open house, we will have board members available to collect membership fees. Alternatively, we will also accept cheques via the mail (PO Box 364, Mamora) and even e-transfer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Your membership dues will go a long way to help cover the costs of keeping the club running during this year; many thanks for your support!
