WCS Board of Directors
Thank you to everyone who attended the public information meeting for the Whaletown Commons. Big thanks to Russ and Beth from the Strathcona Regional District (SRD) who attended as staff to make a presentation and answer our questions and to Noba and Kel, who facilitated and guided the meeting so well. It was a great example of good meeting process, with prompt start and finish times, people listening well to each other, everyone having an opportunity to speak, and a quick, community spirited clean up at the end!
The purchase of the Commons will happen with the most ease if we, the Cortes Community, can raise as much of the $209,000 as possible, that the SRD will need to borrow, to make this dream of a Whaletown Commons Regional Park a reality. If you are able, please consider donating.
The Whaletown Commons Society (WCS) is accepting donations. The SRD can provide tax deductible receipts on all donations over $20. If you’d like a tax receipt, cheques should be made payable to the SRD with Whaletown Commons in the memo. WCS will be happy to receive your donations and pass them onto the SRD, no donation is too small (or large)! They can be mailed to WCS, Box 272, Whaletown, BC, V0P 1Z0 or, of course, directly to the SRD.
You can call Hubert at 250 935 6947, Lovena at 250 935 0323 or email the whaletowncommonsparkgmail.com or talk to any or our Board members with questions.
We hope to celebrate with you in the Commons!
