May is membership month.  Membership chairs Tony Sibley and Betty Karsh have been busy organizing this year’s campaign.  This is our only fund raising event for the year so when the volunteer canvasser calls, please support your community association and purchase your annual membership.


Your membership fees allow us to continue to support community events such as Winterfest, Earth Day, Heritage Day and the Summer Concert Series.  Without this financial support some of these events would not be possible.  If you miss the canvasser or we were not able to have someone canvass your street, you can always purchase your membership on-line through our web site at www.ccranews.com or www.ccranews.ca. Alternately you can fill out the form that will be in the newsletter next month and drop it off with your payment at our drop box in the Port Union Recreation Centre.


We still need canvassers for a number of streets.  The list is elsewhere in this newsletter.  Please give either Tony or Betty a call if you are able to volunteer to canvass and help support your community association.


On April 2nd I attended our quarterly meeting of the Port Union Trail Working Committee.  The work on Phase 2 is slightly ahead of schedule but this phase of the trail is still expected to be completed as originally scheduled in 2011.  Also discussed were some of the amenities and features we would like on this part of the trail.  The items were more of a “wish list”.  The Conservation Authority representatives will now work on this according to budget, and compatibility with the trail and the environment.


Earth Day was celebrated on Saturday April 25th.  Thanks to Conservation Chair Chris Welch and Events Chair Heather Lemieux for helping in the organizing of this event and thanks to all the volunteers who came out to participate in cleaning up our community after what was a long and severe winter. 


One of the events at this year’s Earth Day apart for the cleanup was to plant 300 trees on the waterfront trail as part of the Port Union Stewardship program.


Looking ahead to next month, Highland Creek Heritage Day will be held Saturday June 20th.  This is a day-long community event for the whole family so mark the date on your calendars now.  More details will be in our June newsletter.
