Inverhuron District Ratepayers Association Summer 2011 Newsletter
Happy 65th Anniversary to the IDRA
The spring has a been long anticipated season after a long winter with
lots of snow and cold temperatures. Finally along with a warm up,
spring rains and watching the grass get greener along with the leaves
starting to come out, here comes another summer season to have fun.
Inverhuron has more to offer the residents than just a great beach, parks for
the kids and an expansive provincial park to explore.
It has a ratepayers association with dedicated volunteers who want to ensure that every
resident gets something wonderful during their stay, short term or long
term and create memories into the next generation.
But the board needs the residents to show their support and become a member.
For only $20 you can keep in touch with your summer community and goings on
throughout the year.
Your $20 goes toward getting a new updated directory every 2 years, keeping equipment on hand that is in good
conditon to use at our events such as gazebos and coolers. It keeps the
website up and running and helps to pay for the food in events such as
Games Day and the Corn Roast.
It also helps to cover costs like advertising that keeps you informed of the goings on in our community.
Your membership is an easy and beneficial way of showing your support of your
Take the time to get to know the members of the board if possible, we are here to
make Inverhuron a wonderful place and would appreciate your feedback.
Take the time to come to our newest event WELCOME BACK PARTY FOR THE RESIDENTS! To be held May 22nd at Gord Barrs place on the corner of John and Wood St from 3pm to 5pm. Please
bring a plate of Hors d'eourves for everyone to share at this event!
This year marks the 65th anniversary of the IDRA.
The board of the IDRA is the biggest that it
has been in a long time.
There is a wide range of ages on the board and so the diversity of ideas for upcoming events is exciting! But lets not stop there.
The board needs your help as members to assist with the running of the events, offer input and ideas to make our events better and of course attend the events , because there would be no need for them
without the community participation.
We enjoy hosting these fun events throughout the summer for the residents of Inverhuron, but we can't do it alone.
We need help from people who are able to give a bit of their time to help us run these events.
We are not asking you to do more than you are willing or able to, only a couple of hours at one event
could make the difference of an event running sucessfully or not being able torun at all.
Please contact a board member if you have any questions or would like to donate a couple hours of your time.
