Presidentís Message

As summer approaches we have two community events, one in June and the other in July.  On June 14th the annual Highland Creek Heritage Day Festival will be held once again this year in the Village on Old Kingston Road.  There will be a parade starting at the Legion and proceeding over the Lawson Road bridge and into the Village.  The parade gets underway at 11:00 a.m.  This yearsí festival will feature many activities for children and adults. The Heritage Day Festival is co-sponsored by CCRA.  Plan to attend and support this wonderful community event.  Festival details can be found on their website at www.fleurcom.on.ca/Heritage

The other community event is our annual summer concert series being held on July 6th, 13th and 20th at the Port Union Community Centre starting at 7:00 p.m.  This year we have managed to book some outstanding musical groups for all 3 Sunday evenings including the Scarborough Concert Band on July 6th, Thoze Guyz on July 13nd and Climax Jazz Band on July 20th.  This is a wonderful way to spend a relaxing summer evening listening to some great musical entertainment at no charge.  These concerts are co-sponsored by CCRA.

On May 10th past CCRA president Ben Stanton passed away.  Ben was a long time resident of the Centennial community and was very active in the early days of the association. Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the Stanton family.

Our annual membership campaign continues.

The membership campaign is our only major fund raising event of the year.  A family membership is only $15, a real bargain to ensure your community remains strong and vibrant.  Please donít forget to purchase your membership now!  Thank you to those of you who have bought your 2014 membership.

We are planning to hold an all candidates meeting for the municipal election to be held Oct 27th.  Details of the meeting will be on our website and in the September newsletter.

I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing and enjoyable summer.
