As I write this message fall season is in full swing, and the RPCA is hard at work preparing for the upcoming AGM. This month marks the end as my term as president, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our community, board, volunteers, partners, and staff here at the centre for making these two years so rewarding.

Congratulations to Carmen Rosen and her awesome team for putting on such a great event! I encourage you visit the Renfrew Park Community Association"s YouTube channel to get a glimpse of the event!
At this point in time, however, it is hard not to reflect back on the past two years and recognize that it has also been bittersweet. As you are likely aware, the RPCA advocated for and entered into negotiations with the Park Board in February 2013, as the City and Park Board undertook an unprecedented move to make one of the largest policy shifts in City history, which .....read the rest
