After a long winter it is exciting to be able to welcome the return of Spring. For the Victoria Hills Neighbourhood Association (V.H.N.A.), Spring is a time to roll out some new programs and to find ways to connect with and give back to the community. We’re a non-profit organization mandated to provide recreational and educational opportunities to the Victoria Hills community, and we seek to connect with all members of our diverse and growing community. Here is some of some upcoming activities and events planned for the coming season.
Make sure to check out the Spring programming that we’re offering at the Victoria Hills Community Centre. You can find out about the different programs we offer through our paper flyer, or on the Active Kitchener website. We have programs for all ages and demographics, and we also offer various Youth Drop-In opportunities for active young people. You can always ask at the front desk of the VHCC if you have any questions.
We will be doing our annual Gzowski Park Clean-up activity on Saturday May 13th, from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon, meeting up in the parking lot of the Victoria Hills Community Centre. Working in small groups and families, we’re aiming to help get the park (and the surrounding area) clean and ready for a busy Spring season. Bags and gloves will be provided, and it’s been a great opportunity to lend a helping hand while getting to know some of your neighbours. FYI High school students can use the time towards their mandated volunteer hours.
We are working towards hosting several special events in and around the Victoria Hills Commmunity Centre during the Spring season. To keep updated, feel free to visit our group’s website at , or you can find us on our Facebook page. Details will be posted as they become available, and you can contact us as well - we’d love to hear from you!
We will be hosting our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday June 7th, from 7:00 - 8:00. All members of the community are invited and welcome to attend. If you have any available time and would like to get involved in your community with some friendly and like-minded neighbours then we might be a group you’d like to be involved with. We’re always looking for new members, and no experience is necessary. Our regular Board meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month from 6:30-8:00.
If you’d like to know more about our group and what we do, please feel to contact us through vhna.ca. I wish you a happy and healthy Spring season, and I hope that we have a chance to connect as neighbours during the coming months.
