Members: attend April 27 AGM and distribute cash awards
Letter to the Editor
Calling all EK Community Credit Union members. As a Community Credit Union member myself I want to remind those who are members of EKC that there is an Annual General Meeting on Friday, April 27 at the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort in Cranbrook.
This is an opportunity to meet the Board of EKC; those individuals who make sure this financial institution is the best it can be and that it provides to us the members, the best services possible.
The credit union is an important part of our community through the many community events it supports. My knowledge of one of the events was when the male staff and board supporters participated in the ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ to raise funds for the Cranbrook Women’s Resource Centre. They were successful for two years as being the group that raised the most funds for the walk. The most recent event; the ‘Community Cash Award’ is helping six organizations in the community reach their goals on projects they are working on.
Our organization was selected, along with five others, to participate in the Community Cash Awards. Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club is seeking funding for their youth programming. Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary is seeking funding for their We-Bike program. Cranbrook Garden Club is seeking funding for the various programs they offer to the community. Cranbrook Community Forest Society is seeking funding for program they are working on to better educate users of the Forest. Symphony of the Kootenays is seeking funding for a program they are implementing through this next Symphony season. Rockies Rowing Club is seeking funding for our ‘On Water Safety Program.’
The way you, as a member, or any supporters of these groups, can support these organizations is to attend the EKC AGM on April 27 and vote for your favourite group or project through the Community Cash Award event.
Arrive at 6 p.m. to register and get Community Cash. Distribute the ‘Cash’ to the organization of your choice (perhaps pick two or more groups and spread the wealth around as all the projects will benefit our community).
At 7 p.m. the AGM will take place and after the AGM there will be a reception. If you plan to attend please RSVP at 250-426-8223 ext. 3361 or [email protected].
