2013 AGM Reminder


Dear WCNA Members and Friends …


The trout are in the Creek … so spring is coming!! And so is the Annual General Meeting of the WCNA.


Thursday, April 25th, 7:00 PM, Grantham Lion’s Club


A time to review what has been happening, what is planned and to have your say in what the WCNA can and should be doing. 2012 was a busy and successful year and we anticipate building on that success in 2013, and having your ideas as to what that may contain is most desirable.


We are combining this meeting with a “Town Hall Meeting” with our Grantham Ward Councillors, Bill Phillips and Dawn Dodge. This is an opportunity to hear what the City is thinking, what they are planning for our areas and also to hear the latest on the proposed new Zoning Bylaw which will change some directions when adopted by City Council.


Your attendance is sincerely appreciated as is your continued support. Renewing your WCNA Membership will be possible at the meeting, as will your questions and suggestions be appreciated.


Looking forward to seeing you all!!




The Directors of the Friends of Walkers Creek (Neighbourhood Association)
