Membership Drive goes Online
Official Launch May 1
The Champlain Park Community Association suspended our annual membership drive in 2020 due to the pandemic, but we continued to deliver community initiatives where possible. These included: operating the outdoor rink, supporting the SJAM winter trail, improving green spaces, running non-contact social activities like the Halloween and Christmas house decorating contests, the Holiday Charity Auction, online contests and engaging in development issues. Ongoing operating costs also included insurance and administrative costs. We will continue to provide socially-distanced activities while we ride out this storm. Once the pandemic resolves, we will return to supporting our usual social events, like the Christmas Sleigh Ride, Shakespeare in the Park, and the Halloween Fun Run.
This year, instead of our traditional door-to-door membership drive, we’re going electronic! Please consider paying the CPCA membership fee of $15 per household via e-transfer to FinancesCPCA@gmail.com. Please add your surname and address in the “message” field. If e-transfer is not a good option, you can mail or drop off payment at 197 Carleton Ave. (cash or cheque to Champlain Park Community Association). We recognize the pandemic has had negative financial impacts on some members of our community. If you’re unable to pay this year, please know you remain absolutely welcome to participate in CPCA activities. However, if you’re in a position to make an additional contribution on behalf of the less fortunate, it would be gratefully accepted!
