Building on the momentum of our leadership convention in May and the election of our new leader, Andrew Scheer, we are planning a number of local events for our members during the coming months. Our next event is our Veterans’ Breakfast on Saturday, September 16th at the Royal Canadian Legion (please click for details).
We typically host two kinds of local events during the year:
· Fundraising events – For example, in the past two years our fundraising events have included Niagara wine tours, an indoor golf tournament and Raptors basketball, with a significant portion of dollars raised helping to fund our re-election efforts in 2019.
· Social events – These are fun events that bring us together to hear great speakers and to enjoy each other’s company. Our Veterans’ Breakfast is a great example of a social event that we have held annually for several years with excellent turnouts and some outstanding speakers.
It is only two years until the next Federal Election. We would appreciate receiving your suggestions for event ideas that will help achieve our goal of bringing Burlington back to its Conservative roots.
Please give some thought to possible events that we can begin to organize. I will announce all event ideas received before September 16th at our Veterans’ Breakfast, and we will discuss these potential events at our next board meeting scheduled for September 21st. You can submit your suggestions directly to me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail us at BCA, PO Box 85053, Burlington ON L7R 4K3.
