We hope everyone has enjoyed a fun, safe and relaxing summer and that you are all eager to get back into the swing of things for another fun, informative and exciting season of hockey.
We had a pretty good turn out at our first two amalgamation information meetings held at the beginning of the summer and with the positive feedback that the amalgamation committees received from both meetings, it was decided to proceed with amalgamation talks between Manvers and Millbrook. The committees have met several times through the summer and have started to make positive strides towards completing a plan for amalgamation.
A timeline has been developed that we hope to stick to, to ensure that we can have a complete package to present to our membership and then hand over to the OMHA once a successful vote has been held.
Exact dates will follow, but this is our current timeline:
- 1st information meeting - Nov. 4-8
- 2nd information meeting - Nov. 11-15
- 3rd information meeting - Nov. 25-29
- 4th information meeting - Dec. 2-6
- Final Vote - Dec. 9, 2013
In order to stay on track with this timeline, we are requesting your assistance.
One very important item to be determined is the name and logo for the new organization. This is where we need your help!
We are holding a logo contest to name the new organization and develop a logo.
Submissions can be made to any member of the amalgamation committee or by emailing your submissions to:
- Lois Medd - firstname.lastname@example.org
- Greg Booth - email@example.com
prior to October 15, 2013. Multiple submissions will be accepted.
Please consider that the new name and logo will be voted on by the combined membership at the general information meetings. Submissions should be representative of the community in which we live, and something our kids can wear with pride for years to come.
We thank you in advance for your help in this extremely important step in the Amalgamation process...
Your Amalgamation Committee
