At the Annual General Meeting on May 30 at 7pm a Special Resolution to update the organization’s bylaws will be put forward to the membership of Winston Heights-Mountview Community Association.
The last update to our bylaws was made in May 2010 and over the past seven years Directors have, from time to time, recommended changes which this Special Resolution aims to address. These recommended edits are proposed in order to:
- Update Membership sections to reflect the current practice of Memberships being by household rather than by individual.
- Expand Associate Membership to include businesses and not just individuals who live outside the community.
- Allow a limited number of Associate Members to serve as Directors.
- Expand Conflict of Interest to include more than “tender or contract to be submitted to the Association.”
- Improve consistency of language throughout the document.
The Winston Heights-Mountview Refugee Response (WHMRR) invites you and your family to a fundraiser for the Syrian family supported by so many wonderful residents of the Winston Heights-Mountview community. All of the proceeds of the fundraiser will go to the family’s significant upcoming expenses. Please take this opportunity to meet our wonderful newcomer family!
The fundraiser will take place at the WHMCA Hall on May 26 2017 with a buffet style dinner of traditional Syrian food served from 5:30-8:30 pm. Tickets are $20, but children 12 and under can join and eat for free. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the event.
Thank you to the community of Winston Heights-Mountview for your ongoing support for this worthwhile cause. We look forward to seeing you at the dinner!

Sweeper Stolen from the Winston Heights-Mountview Community Association Rink
At approximately 5am on Saturday January 14, 2017 a sweeper (Ariens 24” sweeper, model 920014 with an NCE Enterprises Inc. decal) was stolen from the Winston Heights-Mountview Community Association Rink. This is used by community volunteers to help clear the ice at the outdoor rink. The Calgary Police Service has been notified but any information to track down the sweeper would be great!
In the bottom picture you can see a stock photo of the sweeper. Additionally, we have included 2 pictures from our security cameras, of a black truck of interest, driving into and then leaving the storage area:
Above: Truck driving in with decal clearly visible.
Below: Truck driving out, with what appears to be the sweeper in question high lighted in red.
If you have any information you can contact us directly at 403-681-9142 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to the Calgary Police Service: 403-266-1234

Looking for feedback
Currently we have 7 sandwich boards. We are looking at replacing them, but before we do, we would love some feedback regarding location placement!
We are looking for a list of locations that would be suitable or better suited than the current locations. Suggest as many as you would like (current locations may still be the best spots, but we want to know what you think)!
