President’s Message

To the Riley Park Hillcrest Community,

                    After a summer break, I’m writing to keep you all updated on the goings-on here at
                    Hillcrest Centre. We have lots on the go and many good things happening, so I’m happy
                    to reach out to you today to keep you informed!
                   Our Halloween event for the local community was a success, and this follows our Summer
Ken Charko,        Festival being a complete success. With these events being successful as they are, we
President RPHCA   have several Christmas and related holiday events in the planning stages, so stay tuned for
                   a fun-filled holiday season for everyone. My thanks to our Board members who volunteer
                   their time to help the community and plan these wonderful events that we all enjoy.
                    On the business front, we are working towards a new Joint Operating Agreement with
                    the Parks Board. At this time, progress has been made internally and we stand, as always,
Ray Chung,
                    ready to negotiate with the Parks Board at their convenience.
Director RPHCA
            Looking to the future, we have our upcoming Christmas celebration for the staff who run
the programs that the community enjoys. We look forward to seeing all our employees there! Without
their hard work and dedication, the programs would not run, so I thank them for their hard work.
For next year, we have several new program options in the works and we’re incredibly excited to be
moving forward with them. Stay tuned and be sure to keep your eyes open for any that interest you!
Finally, I thank each and every one of you, our friends and neighbours, that keep the community
centre active in our community. It is only with your continued support that the Board can continue to
serve you with the programs and services you ask for.
Have a Merry Christmas, a happy holiday season, and the Board’s door is open for you if you have any
questions or comments.

Sincerely and with thanks,
Ken Charko, President
Riley Park Hillcrest Community Association

      variety of equipment and program supplies, allowing for quality activities in a safe and secure
