Need for more volunteers….

Please consider the following request because more shoulders will make the task lighter and ensure its success. Because our curling rink has received a commitment for a financial contribution to be used for a structural expansion on the entrance side of the Chedabucto CC’s lounge we need your assistance. Our challenge will be to complete this project by planning its road to success and by finding the financial assistance to go with the before-mentioned contribution along with the monetary commitment that has been already made by the Municipality of the District of Guysborough.

The Chedabucto CC’s 2016-2017 renovation/expansion committee has five volunteers who have agreed to assist but we need more helpers from community-minded individuals. As of today the committee is comprised of the following five: Ray Bates, Basil Mattie, Blair Brymer, Neil DeCoff and Maurice Landry — but we need the assistance of more — in whatever capacity and to whatever amount of time that you are able to contribute.

Your contribution could be to brainstorm ideas to plan our road to success, to make some phone calls, to visit businesses and/or individuals to encourage their support, to participate in fund-raising endeavours or whatever else that needs to be done to enable the proposed expansion/renovation to be completed next year.

This goal is ambitious — as was the community’s desire 53 years ago to establish and support the Chedabucto Curling Club — but I truly believe the proposed renovation can be done; in fact, it is my sincere belief is that we can achieve this project in 2017 so our community can start next year to benefit from our efforts.

It is my intention to have our first planning meeting next week. By having more volunteers to assist we can get various components activated to ensure our success. There are many ways in which you can help — all assistance will be sincerely valued and truly appreciated.

With my best regards — and anticipation for more volunteers — I look forward to hearing from you.

With my best regards,

Ray
