It seems that we are still status COVID qou. As I write this on May 6, we are again in a new level of restrictions with no firm end in sight. I can tell you how discouraged, frustrated, angry, and sad I am, but it’s a broken record on repeat and I know people are feeling the same. I can only hope that the end is near and we can finally begin to move forward.
Speaking of moving forward, we have come to our association’s year-end. Of course COVID and the restrictions dominated this past year and hindered any normal operation by all stretches of the imagination. But I must be grateful that we made it through the year.
This past year was one of maintenance. Maintaining the operation of the HCA and board as best we could. Maintaining our pre-school. Maintaining any programs as allowed. Maintaining the access to the community centre for our renters as best we could. The list goes on. As we plan our year end, I can say that without Diane at the community centre, our preschool teachers, parents, and committee, our community centre users, the work of our board, and especially those in the community we would be in a very different place. Our budgeted shortfall this year was minimized because of this hard work and those dedicated people who helped, and used our community centre during this crazy time. The association remains in a good standing to carry over to next year.
A second thing to reflect on is community. There were some bright lights in our community that helped us smile during the times we needed it this past year. By bright lights, I mean the people of Haysboro. We had so many volunteers step up: from the ice rink crew, those that organized various events (the Haysboro scavenger hunt, Halloween, COVID companions, and so many more), and those who donated to our rink fund and tennis courts (by the way the tennis court donation is ongoing. Please visit haysboro.org to learn more). These are people who, by their own initiative, took it upon themselves to donate, organize, and host these successful events and programs. While the HCA Board provides oversight and guidance to general operations, it is our volunteers and community members who truly create the community we know. Thank you!
With the end of this HCA year, we move to next year. Our AGM will be at the end June, so please watch for the date and time. And please engage by attending to get a sense of the HCA operations, or engage with us to see how you can help. We are encouraged by our community and know that next year will be better.
If you are interested in helping move our community forward, we would love to meet you!. Please contact Diane at the office firstname.lastname@example.org and she can put you in touch with us.
The 2021 AGM will be held on June 28, 2021. We'll post details here soon with how to join us.

My family and I were in Canmore this past weekend to enjoy a change of scenery from our
basement TV room. It was warm and sunny, contrasting with the snow-capped peaks visible
from town. In a way, that scenery speaks to the change of events we are witnessing right now. It
is still winter, but spring is looking at us from around the corner. The snow is melting, the sun is
getting a little warmer, and vaccines are rolling out. Maybe, please and thank-you, perhaps our
pandemic weary souls are seeing some hope?
As I write this, the Government of Alberta just announced a full transition into Phase 2 of the
new reopening plan. That means our community centre is able to open up to more activities
again. This is great news! Something we have been waiting a long time to hear. We certainly
look forward to adding more activities and programs as we can with this re-opening.
Even if there is still some uncertainty to what the next few months will look like, one thing for
certain, is that our community engagement is still strong. We put out a soft call for donations on
our website to help fund our ice rinks for the season, and wow the community sure stepped up!
Our goal was a lofty $1,000 to help with maintenance of the rink and some needed repairs to
our equipment. That goal was achieved and then some with the community generously donating
$1,125 towards our rink maintenance. Our community cannot be thanked enough for their
selflessness in helping us reach our goal. This will certainly pay off next season.
As I look back to the first few months of the year, there was a lot of uncertainty in what the future
would look like. Hopefully with this transition into spring, the vaccines, and hopefully, a more
stable reopening, we will have more stable steps forward.
I sure hope that the next few months bring some continued positive news. And that we can start
to come together as a community and give each other the human support that we have all been
missing, and craving lately.
Thank You SO much #Haysboro for stepping up and contributing to the HCA for the winter ice maintenance. We were able to maintain our equipment and continue to offer the residents of Haysboro a great ice experience throughout the winter months. We hope you all enjoyed the time out on the ice with your family. With your generous contributions we were able to exceed our original goal of $1,000. You guys are truly are AWESOME!
This has been a challenging year for us, as current health restrictions have limited our traditional revenue sources (Hall Rentals, Programs, etc). We truly appreciate all of you for what you have given us and YOUR community. THANK you a million times over
