I hope you and your families are all staying warm, safe, and doing very well. It's time for a quick winter 22/23 update on the Coral Springs Residents Association (C.S.R.A).
The C.S.R.A AGM will be held November 17th, 2022 at 7pm at the South Beach House. Please join us if you are able. If you are unable to attend, make sure your voice is heard by returning your signed proxy to the beach house before 7pm, November 16th, 2022. If you do not have anyone attending you can nominate to support you, leave the nominee blank, and on behalf of the current board I would be honored to represent you. Please make sure to note on your proxy if you have any specific items. If you are able to attend the meeting, please consider volunteering as a board member. When I ask for volunteers, please raise your hand and let me know at the meeting that you are interested.
The lake has frozen over as of November 3rd, 2022 and the ice is very thin. Please follow the expert guidance of our staff at the beach house and keep off the ice until testing indicates we are able to enjoy skating, ice fishing and more on the lake. The tennis court rinks will be opened earlier. You can find the current lake status and our hours on our website at https://www.coralspringsresidents.com.
Our staff, the board and myself have received a significant amount of positive feedback this year on how exceptionally clean and well kept the lake and parks are. Please join me in providing a special thanks to our staff for doing an exceptional job whenever you see them!
Please do not feed the Geese and Gulls in the community now, or at any time of the year. This can help limit the number of birds on the lake at this, and any time of the year. As these birds gather to migrate, they like to use the lake as a safe gathering place. Not feeding these birds will help to keep our lake and Coral Springs clean!
Fiscally the C.S.R.A is doing exceptionally well. I am a strong believer in leveraging government grants where we are able, and along with staff help, we have applied for and received a number of grants wherever possible for the past 4 years. This year, one large grant provided us 50% of funding and helped us install new playground exercise equipment and much more, plus another grant has helped us pay for summer student wages, leaving us very healthy financially.
We live in a magical community. Make sure you dress appropriately and get outside to enjoy everything Coral Springs, Calgary and the surrounding communities have to offer. Stay safe and warm. Until next time!
