Falaise Park work party, Thursday, January 31, 2019

Our first work party for 2019 is slated for Thursday,  January 31 from 10 am to noon.

As mentioned in the last newsletter our native trees and shrubs order has arrived and a Saanich Parks crew will be planting them during the Work Party.

If you can spare a little time that morning to lend a hand with your spade it will be appreciated!

If time permits, we also plan to remove scattered English ivy ,  small Daphne  and  blackberry under the trees by the roadside. This is light work – please bring your hand tools and gloves. Hope to see you there.  ( weather permitting ! )

Family Day social event, Monday February 18, 2019

We’re kicking off the year with a Family Day Social Event! This is a great opportunity for young families to come out and meet each other and for everyone in the community to connect.
It is a free event at the Women’s Institute Hall (4516 W Saanich Rd) from 2 to 4 pm on Family Day February 18th. We will have snacks and drinks and activities for both kids and adults. There will also be a play area for smaller kids. To help protect the floors please bring indoor shoes to wear. There is parking available for several cars, and we can arrange to drive those who may not be able to get to the hall. If you have any suggestions, or would like to help out, please contact us at info@falaise.ca.

Agenda for the 2018 AGM

The AGM will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 7 to 9 pm, in the Fireside Room at the Gateway Baptist Church. The church is located at 898 Royal Oak Ave and anyone needing a ride to the meeting can contact the FCA President at president@falaise.ca. One of the objectives of the meeting is to elect the directors who will serve for 2019. Ideally, six directors will be elected, although the constitution allows for a minimum of three. At their first meeting, the directors will elect from among themselves a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Registrar.

In addition to the normal business, the AGM will feature a guest speaker. Mike Meagher of the Garry Oak Preservation Society has agreed to speak about their efforts to preserve the Garry Oak ecosystems in Canada. He is also prepared to answer questions from the audience.
