Please feel free to contact me:

As we embark on a new year, I am honoured to address you as the President of our beloved association. It is with great enthusiasm that I extend my warmest greetings to each
and every one of you, celebrating our vibrant community and the incredible spirit that defines us.

As we transition from the frosty days of winter to the blossoming beauty of spring, it is a time of renewal and growth not only in nature, but also within our community. I am continually inspired by the dedication and resilience of our members who tirelessly work to make West Rouge a place we are all proud to call home.

I want to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to our volunteers and board of directors who dedicate their time, energy, and expertise to the betterment of our community. Their unwavering commitment is the driving force behind the success of our association, and I am truly thankful for their hard work and dedication.

As we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of community development, we recognize the importance of welcoming new voices and fresh perspectives. Therefore, I encourage each of you to consider becoming a volunteer and joining us in our mission to enhance the quality of life in West Rouge. Conversely, there are also opportunities for those who wish to be even more involved by joining our board of directors. Whether you have a passion for community safety, community outreach, or environmental sustainability, there is a place for you in our association, and your contributions will undoubtedly make a difference.

Our Annual General Meeting took place in October 2023 with a large gathering of our membership in attendance. Some of the important highlights include: the introduction and adoption of our new organizational by-law, as required by the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporation Act; the continued expansion of our membership base by an increase of 7 percent over last year; and the installation of three new welcome signs in the West Rouge community, which were installed in early 2024. Councillor Jennifer McKelvie was in attendance, sharing important community updates and answering resident questions on a wide variety of topics regarding city services. We are grateful to everyone who attended and the input they provided to make our community a better place to live.

As we look ahead, I would like to remind all members to renew their memberships for the upcoming year. Your membership dues of $15 not only support the initiatives and programs of our association, but also enable us to continue serving the needs of our community. Your ongoing support is invaluable, and we are immensely grateful for your continued commitment to our shared vision.

In closing, it is our 40th anniversary, I am filled with optimism and excitement for the future of the West Rouge Community Association. Together, we have the power to effect positive
change, foster meaningful connections, and create a lasting impact that transcends generations. Let us embrace the changing seasons with open hearts and minds, united in our passion for community and our dedication to making West Rouge a place where everyone thrives.

Thnk you for your unwavering support, and I look forward to our continued journey together.
