A proposal was submitted at the AGM to amend the Constitution for Meetings.

The fiscal year was set as the period from Jan 1 to Dec 31 (as opposed to the original definition of May 1 to April 20th) at the AGM on June 15, 2005.  At that time a motion was also approved to require that the AGM be held within sixty (60) days of the fiscal year (as opposed to the original definition of 30 days). For various reasons (completion of the Financial Statements, the Corporate Return and receipt of the Acceptance Notice, the membership campaign, timing of the release of the Winter Newsletter, the weather conditions, March Break absences, etc.), since 2009 the Board has scheduled the Annual meeting in the month of April. The Board would therefore wishes to amend the Constitution to require that the Annual member meeting be held within 120 days of the fiscal year end (Dec 31).

 The motion is to amend the second paragraph of Article VII – MEETINGS:

Current  Statement:
The Annual meeting of the members shall be held at such time and place as the Board of Directors determine, but must be within thirty (60) days of the fiscal year-end.  Members shall be notified at least seven days prior to the meeting.

Proposed Statement:
The Annual meeting of the members shall be held at such time and place as the Board of Directors determine, but must be within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the fiscal year-end.  Members shall be notified at least seven days prior to the meeting.

SAHRA Neighbours’ Night Out on June 13th 2017!

We held the  13th Neighbours’ Night Out in 2017.    It originally started out being held in June, in conjunction with a City-wide Neighbours’ Night out but it was changed after a couple of years to be held on the first day back to school in September.  It was suggested that the June timeframe might work better for families so this year the event was held on Tuesday, June 13 6:30-8:00 p.m. outside 2 Haddington (at Greer). 

We extend our thanks to the following sponsors:

Miller Tavern for providing the Raffle prize…$150 dinner for two
York Mills Eyecare for supplying glasses as Raffle prizes
Party Rock for donating/supplying the balloons
Baskin-Robbins for supplying the ice cream at cost
National Bank for a cash donation to fund balloon and ice cream costs
City Fire Department for visiting us in their fantastic red truck!

Some pictures follow of the event.
