How You Can Help

 

We appreciate how our community has supported us for the past five years as we have fought this challenging and frustrating battle. Your e-mails, letters, tweets and calls to Park Board Commissioners have worked. You’ve come out to community meetings. You are a vital part of our getting this far in the process.

Please call 3-1-1 and tell the Park Board that you want them to speak to us about the changes we need to see in the document before we can sign the agreement.

Please see below for sample tweets and e-mail copy to send to the Park Board.

Park Board Commissioners are elected officials. In the simplest terms, they work for the residents of Vancouver. While we always encourage you to be respectful and considerate, it is also important to clearly communicate that you, as a community member, are unhappy with the proposed Joint Operating Agreement presented to the Kerrisdale Community Centre Society.

It is important that we tell them – in a manner that is loud and clear – what we want in this contract, and demand that they listen to us.

Tell them that the Kerrisdale community doesn’t want a bunch of Park Board bureaucrats running our community centre. We want to keep the community in our community centre.

It might not seem like it, but we have made great progress. However, we need to do more – we need to do it right now and we need your help!

E-mail & Tweet Template Content

E-mail Option 1

Subject Line: Keep Community in Our Community Centre!

Dear Park Board Commissioners,

I am a member of Kerrisdale Community Centre. The Joint Operating Agreement you want us to sign isn’t in our best interest. There are important changes that must be made.

We’ve done a great job for more than 70 years. I want you to let the Kerrisdale Community Centre Society continue on doing a great job.

Keep community in Kerrisdale Community Centre!

E-mail Option 2

Subject Line: I Support Kerrisdale Community Centre!

Dear Park Board Commissioners,

Kerrisdale is an engaged, active community – and I don’t think the agreement you want the Kerrisdale Community Centre Society to sign is good for our community centre.

I am asking you to make the changes that are being requested so that we can have an agreement works for our community centre as well as the Park Board.

I support Kerrisdale Community Centre!

E-mail Option 3

Subject Line: I Stand Behind Kerrisdale Community Centre!

Dear Park Board Commissioners,

The Joint Operating Agreement that you want our community centre to sign isn’t good for our community! It needs to be revised.

I am asking you to make the changes that are being requested so that we can have an agreement works for our community centre as well as the Park Board.
