Community Club at Risk

Dear Oak Bluff Friends and Neighbors,


Our recreation club is currently at risk. The best way to understand the risks we face is by presenting some common myths along with the realities, so our community understands the needs we have as a community organization.


Did you know…Myths vs. Facts


Myth: The Rec club is owned and operated by the RM of Macdonald.


Fact: The Rec Club is owned by the residents of Oak Bluff (you). There is only one paid full-time contract employee who operates the facility and the rest of the work is done by board members and volunteers. Because of this, our investment in this building and the services we provide are heavily dependent on our board and volunteers. Without them recreation in Oak Bluff is not sustainable.


We are asking you to join the board allowing all of Oak Bluff to enjoy fully what the recreation club has to offer.


The following positions need to be filled ASAP;


Treasurer


Myth: Treasurer duties sound like they take a great deal of time and energy.


Fact: The Treasurer is a key and valued member of the Oak Bluff Rec Club. Duties typically take only 7 -10 hours/month.


Ball

Myth: Baseball and softball happens every year because I sign my kid(s) up to play.


Fact: Without a rep for Oak Bluff, we will not have baseball/softball for Oak Bluff. The diamonds at the school require seasonal maintenance for the MacDonald ball teams and rental contracts.


Fundraising


Myth: Fundraising is a complex, stressful cold call position.


Fact: Fundraising is key to the community center in collecting additional funding for the center. Requires an organized person who can renew contracts for signage, work with Tim Hortons for the cookie campaign and other fundraising as organized by the position.


If you have any interest in or questions about the above positions please contact Ken Robb @ vicepresident@obrc.ca or 204-797-7182
