Saturday, November 19
After a two-year hiatus, Fisher Heights & Area Community Association is excited to bring back the 4 th ever Family Movie Night! We will be screening the Disney classic, Mary Poppins. The movie runs for 139 minutes, and some say it is, ‘practically perfect in every way’.
The young, and the young at heart are all welcome. Feel free to bring blankets, sleeping bags or other items for your children to sit on in front of chairs. And what is a movie night without snacks? Popcorn and candy (Welch’s Fruit Gummies) will be provided, along with refreshments (juice and water), and for the adults, decaf coffee and hot chocolate. And as is now tradition, there will be a draw at the end of the show for a gift card.
Entrance is free for everyone
Sign up right now so we can count the number of people and check on allergies etc: Here is a link to an RSVP page
Saturday, November 19th, starting at 6 pm (doors open at 5:30pm),
On Saturday October 15, we are going to battle the Buckthorn in Gilbey Park
Time: 9:00 – Noon
The Common Buckthorn bush/tree is an invasive species that doesn’t belong in Canada. You can recognise it from the prickly spikes it has on its shoots and the black little berries it produces. To avoid it taking over Gilbey Park, we are organising a morning to remove the Buckthorn. The Common Buckthorn is listed as a noxious weed under Ontario’s Weed Control Act.
We will meet in the upper park near the benches (just off the curved paved path from Beaver Ridge). Bring your garden tools loppers, small saws, clippers, rakes, gloves, tarps, etc.
This is a great way to give kids some extra exposure to the natural areas in our neighbourhood and to encourage them taking ownership of our direct surroundings.
We especially encourage residents in the Gilbey Park area to come out and help, even it is only for an hour.
Adults & children are welcome (the children can help gather twigs). This community effort is organized and sponsored by Fisher Heights & Area Community Association. Many hands make light work.
The Fisher Heights and Area Community Association takes places on Tuesday, September 20 at 7:30 pm, at our community building on 31 Sutton Place.
It wil be an in person meeting again, but we will ask you to wear a mask to prevent spreading and protect our seniors. Covid is not gone.
More information will follow in the next few weeks as we are preparing the documentation.
In order to vote, you will need to be a member in good standing and you need to have paid your dues. Members who paid since July 1 are automatically members until August 31, 2023, which is the date our book year ends.
Looking for several board members
We will be looking for several board members. Being a board member requires a commitment of attending approximately ten 90 minute board meetings a year as well as half an hour per week (at the most) to catch up on email and some participation in in our events obviously. Participating in a Community Association board is usually a great way to learn how community groups work. If you are interested to talk to us in advance, connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us in 1920’s New Orleans, where magic and music come alive in the bayou. Our re-imagining of The Tempest features curious crocodiles, tricksy spirits, handmade instruments, and a jazz inspired musical score.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT FHACA IS NOT MONITORING SOCIAL MEDIA, WE ONLY USE IT TO GET THE WORD OUT. IF YOU LIKE TO HELP US OUT (WE ARE ALL BUSY AFTER ALL INCLUDING YOUR FHACA BOARD) PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING THE BOARD IN SEPTEMBER. We are looking for more people to follow developments, for people to run a park committee, for people to run a Halloween event (ideas welcome) and board members at large.
Kids Movie night
Our Kids movie night returns this year. Please follow our newsletter (fhaca.ca) for updates.
