Notice of Emergency Meeting of the Whaletown Community Club
Gorge Hall 7pm - Tuesday July 5 - 2011

This is a special information/discussion meeting to clarify the legal and financial requirements, responsibilities and liabilities taken on by the board and any person who holds an event on WCC property (the Gorge Hall and The Old School House). Topics will include amendments made to the rental agreement, to better address these issues and the consequences of non compliance.

There have been serious violations of our rules and regulations and B.C. liquor laws. The police shut down a recent dance due to alcohol infractions, there has been vandalism and theft of hall property, trash and liquor containers inside and outside the hall, complaints about partying outside after hours and more.

These events have caused the board to reevaluate the rental of the Hall until new conditions are in place. All current bookings are not guaranteed.

We have a busy summer season of gallery events, dances, concerts and private parties ahead of us. Please come to this special meeting and participate in the discussion so that we can have the best possible outcome for all.

Board of directors, Whaletown Community Club
