President’s Message – July 2022

With the advent of summer and vacations, the activity at our hall switches towards weddings, celebrations and summer camps. This year we will be supporting kids with disabilities camp put on by Between Friends. This will run from July 4 through August 26. This camp will utilize the hall facilities over the summer while the Edelweiss Preparatory School goes on summer recess. Our Fitness and Yoga programs will be suspended over the two summer months and start back up in September. Watch our website for details.

We hosted our Southern France Wine Tasting Event on May 28 and had a good turnout to enjoy wines and their detailed vintage descriptions by Highlander Wine and Spirits supported by excellent charcuterie boards provided by Springbank Cheese. Dave Thomas and his crew of Barb, Wendy and Lori are to be congratulated on this great event. This marked a return of activities to the community hall after nearly two years of COVID shutdown.

On July 16 the car show, Die Volksmesse 2022, will be held at the community centre and is being sponsored by Bugs, Bunnies and Buses ( Reference the poster in this issue and their website for more details.

Our Annual General Meeting was held on June 28 to vote in the Board of Directors for the 2022-23 term. Hopefully, you were in attendance to witness the excellent financial position of the Community and our plans for 2022 and 2023. We encourage your participation in Board and community activities as we attempt to provide a central source of both development and social activities for our residents.

We are planning to start the fall program with an afternoon family music and food event on Saturday, September 17. Once again the Gunn Blues Band will be performing an outdoor music concert free to all. Just bring your lawn chairs or picnic blankets and relax on the lawn behind the hall. We plan to have additional activities for the family as well as food and non-alcoholic beverages being available. Mark this date on your calendar.
Later in the fall, we plan to hold our annual Halloween Party and in the early new year our Polar Skating event. Consult our website ( for details in the coming months

We have also initiated a project to paint a mural on the Community Hall wall facing our parking lot. We will be selecting a design and publishing a preview in our August Newsletter, our website and through our social media outlets. Please consider registering your email address on our website to gain early access to upcoming events and issues of importance to the community.

We have all noticed an increase in development activity in Cambrian Heights. With the resignation of three of our Board members this year anyone interested in a role in the development of our community should consider joining our Planning Committee or perhaps the Board of Directors. It is a great way to help shape the nature of Cambrian Heights in the future. We are also looking for someone interested in helping coordinate our social programs. To discuss either please contact us at

Enjoy your summer!

Daryl Connolly, President CHCA
