What’s happening?

Kitchen Renovations: We are very pleased to inform you that our Hall has a new look!  January was devoted to renovating the Kitchen which now offers a fresh new look, convenient accessibility, and is more comfortable to warm and prepare meals in.  We wish to extend a sincere thank-you to everyone who volunteered their time to ensure this project was a success.  Please be sure to attend our upcoming events and check it out.

Rink: Thank you to everyone who took advantage of a great skating season at our Outdoor Rink.  There were many new faces, lots of laughs, and hours of fun shared this year at the Rink.  The G.C.A upgraded the rink surface last fall and the results sure paid off this winter.  The quality of the ice was excellent thanks to Gerry Sayer for maintaining the ice and snow removal. Thank you Mark Dallas for monitoring and scheduling volunteers to monitor.  Safety comes first, so thank you to everyone who volunteered.

Looking Ahead

Galetta Community Association General Meeting: April 27, 2009 at 7 p.m, the G.C.A will be hosting a General Meeting and invites each of you to attend.  We are always looking for new ideas, suggestions, and volunteers.  Please mark your calendar and support your community!
