Earlier this month the directors of the WRA met and approved a motion to ask the voting members of the WRA to allow it to dissolve. Our final meeting is September 16, 2021 at 7pm and if you are a member you have already received notice of this meeting. It is very sad to see this come to an end after almost 10 years. Willoughby has changed a lot, however, and is probably better served by smaller community associations.
We want to thank the many sponsors who have helped us through the years, especially the Shepherd of the Valley Church who so graciously helped us out with meeting space.
To the members of the Fort Langley Community Association, and the now defunct Brookswood Fernridge Community Association, a special thanks for leading the way and taking us into your fold.
To the many residents of Willoughby who helped carry this along, attended council meetings, attended other community meetings and were the eyes and ears of the community, you are fabulous. We hope you continue to be strong and keep a health community.
As the novel coronavirus continues to affect us all globally, the WRA September meeting is also postponed. We will need to have our November Annual General Meeting (AGM) and it is tentatively set for Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 7:00 pm. Whether it is in person or virtual will be announced closer to the date.
In the meantime, we are still here for you. If you have an issue that concerns Willoughby, or something about Willoughby, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our volunteers will respond as soon as possible.
How the world has changed since the last time we met. Like we really need to tell any of you!
Since our February meeting, you may have noticed a few changes in our community, and, like you, the WRA is rolling with the waves.
In the spirit of coming together as a community and working to plank the curve (and hold it flat), we’re going to spend a bit more time apart this spring. Specifically, we’re cancelling the May meeting of the WRA.
Behind the scenes, we’ll continue to watch goings-on in our community, work to engage with more community members in a variety of ways, and look to reconvening in September. Please join us on September 15, November 17 2020 for our regularly scheduled AGM quarter meeting.
Please continue to be in touch, to share your local news and events, and to letting us know how we can continue to develop and sustain the WRA and the Willoughby community at large.
Until we meet again.
On behalf of the Willoughby Residents Association,
