RCA Annual Meeting Location Changed to Morpeth Community Hall

It is time again for our RCA Annual General Meeting on Sunday, July 1 – Canada Day! However, please note we are moving the location of the AGM this year.  It will be held at the Morpeth Community Centre.

So why are we moving?

  • The hall is air conditioned and mosquito-free with lots of comfortable chairs and easily-accessible washrooms.
  • It holds almost twice as many people as the church.
  • We will be sharing an exceptional amount of new information and it will run at least three hours.
  • We will need a darkened room.  We have several special guests attending who want to present PowerPoint slideshows and the church is just too bright to see the projection screen.
  • There are lots of tables for registration, coffee, and refreshments.

The Morpeth Community Hall is located at “the four corners” in Morpeth at the intersection of Talbot Trail & Hill Road.  To get there from Rondeau just continue along the lake past Kent Bridge Road, along the cliffs, past Wildwood Trailer Park, around the S-bend, and proceed straight up into Morpeth.  The hall is at the northeast corner of the intersection.  There is lots of parking behind the hall if the front parking lot is full.  (Please consider leaving the front parking lot available for our elderly members so they can be closer to the entrance.)

St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church has served us well for decades however we’ve got an unprecedented amount of information to share with you this year — so we hope to fill this larger facility.  This has been the busiest year yet for your Executive.  In fact, the largest project ever undertaken by the RCA has just been completed and will be revealed to the membership for the first time.  We hope you’re there to see it first-hand.

Honourary RCA Member Bill Stephen will have his 1,146 page Rondeau Forever “megabook” on display and will be taking orders.  No other park in the world (maybe no other community in the world) has anything like this.  It really is incredible how Rondeau inspires those who love it.

We are now at the inevitable point in this email where I remind everyone that if you pay your membership dues in advance you’ll be whisked-in past the long line of people waiting to pay.  It’s like having an early-entry pass at Disney World (only cheaper!)  To pay in advance visit the RCA Website <http://www.rondeaucottagers.ca>  or call Mary Margaret McDonald in our Business Office at 519-674-1500 x63592 and pay over the phone.  (Note:  Website registration and a password are NOT REQUIRED to pay online!  You DO NOT need a special PayPal account, all you need is a credit card.)  Membership dues are $175 this year and if you haven’t already paid the $200 Special Levy please remit ASAP.  Your support is an investment in Rondeau’s future.

Please consider showing your RCA support by wearing something from our online web store to the AGM.

Oh and one last thing — if you have any Rondeau neighbours who don’t have an email address please make sure you tell them about this change in location.  And if you receive multiple copies of this email we are just trying to sneak it past the “spam filters” and ensure all our members receive it.

I hope to see you on  Sunday July 1st at 10am at the Morpeth Community Hall.
