Reporting Back to the Community Event Hosted in Treherne

by Patti Hacault, Staff Reporter 

 

Absolutely paramount is identifying what your community is, what you intend it to function as, and what the overall goals are. It is important to make a careful note of the expectations for the community as a whole as well as those of individual participants.

 

The community of Treherne has, for the past 15 years, held a combined evening where organizations have presented their annual reports and updates on their happenings throughout the past year.

 

This year, there were a record number of organizations conveying information to community individuals during the Reporting Back to the Community meeting, held on Tuesday, February 13th  at TaLLboys Grill and Pub.

 

The Norfolk-Treherne Community Development Corporation, Tiger Hills Community Foundation, Treherne Chamber of Commerce, Treherne Aquatic Centre, the Treherne Age Friendly Committee, Tiger Hills Community Resource Centre, Treherne and Rathwell Fire Departments, Treherne Minor Athletic, Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs of Treherne, Rathwell Skating Rink, Donors Choice, Treherne Marathon and Municipality of Norfolk Treherne presented reports, and responded to queried questions.

 

The South Norfolk-Treherne Community Development Corporation highlights from the past year were presented by Chris Marginet, President, who was also the MC for the meeting.

The CDC mandate is to promote tourism in Norfolk Treherne, as well as oversee the Farmers’ Market. Also under their umbrella are the Glass Bottle Buildings which have been a nice addition to tourism for the community.

 

“One of the major projects the CDC was involved in this year was the medical clinic. It helped in the fundraising of the building and organizing meeting for the clinic so we are very happy how it all turned out,” stated Marginet.

 

The other continuing project that the CDC has been involved in for the past 15 years has been the Boyne Water Initiative.
