Members are the key to any community.
Successful communities are those with lively, active members, volunteers and board members. The community association exists for the benefit of the residents and develops programs and services to meet their unique needs and interests.
Your community association can be your voice with respect to decisions that affect your neighbourhood. It can be a place for your children to make new friends, learn important skills through recreation or simply having a good time.
A family membership is $10.00 and it is valid for one year from the date of purchase.
Your community association is what you make of it.
