Greely Community Association Co-operative Playgroup
The purpose of the Greely Co-operative Playgroup (GCP) is to provide a fun place where parents, guardians and/or childcare providers can bring their children to play and socialize while the adults stay near by and supervise their own children. The playgroup meets on Tuesdays from 9:30 to 11:30. Please Contact Leeann Bogart at firstname.lastname@example.org
MEMBERSHIP FEES DUE: A friendly reminder that membership fees for the calendar year are due and can be paid to our secretary at a GCA meeting. This nominal $10 fee funds the operations of the GCA and allows us to continue serving the Greely community. GCA memberships allow Greely residents to become voting members at GCA meetings and entitles them to meeting agendas in advance, GCA e-mail announcements and notices, and input on various GCA issues such as development proposals and community planning (details of which are distributed though e-mail). Get involved in your community, get a GCA membership now!
Do you have ideas on how to promote the GCA and continue growing our visibility in the community? Do you know of businesses or non-profit organizations that would benefit from publicity through us?? Our community sponsors are an important source of revenue for the GCA and benefit from great advertising through our web site. We just need people to bring us all together! If you have any interest in helping out, please e-mail email@example.com.
Show us the money! Do you have an idea for a community event that can help raise funds for the GCA? Our Funding Committee needs people to come up with fundraising ideas to help support GCA operations and increase our ability to help our community. These events often don't take a lot of work to set up, can be great community builders and a lot of fun. We also need people willing to do a little research as to what government grants are available to community associations like ours. Municipal, provincial and even federal grants can provide valuable funding to non-profit organizations like the GCA if we have people who understand the application and qualification processes. So if you think you can help us make an extra buck or two, we'd love your help. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
