We’re in an Election Year and 2019 is shaping up to be filled with political party announcements, debates by the leaders and candidates, lots of information sharing that we’ll need to decipher and a great opportunity for each of us to determine how best to get involved in our democratic process. I believe we’re blessed to live in Canada and as such we should all be looking for ways to contribute with our time, talents and funds as best we can. Your Burlington Conservative Association is planning a number of local events for our members during the coming months leading up to the election and beyond.
In 2019 we’ve held our Annual General Meeting, open to all BCA members and have held a couple of board meetings to get ready for the year ahead. Currently, we have a number of activities planned:
- The BCA 2019 Clean Up Green Up – a great opportunity for us to help clean up our community and demonstrate one of the many ways each of us can care for our environment. Volunteers are needed and friends are always welcomed at this annual event.
- Our Slots & Trots fundraiser – this is a multi-riding event with at least 6 current MPs, as well as 2019 area candidates attending. Meeting with fellow Conservatives, enjoying an All-You-Can-Eat Italian Buffet, watching the races and you can even place a wager on the races if you wish. This has been a fun event for all in the past.
- Our BCA Veteran’s Appreciation Dinner & Outreach – each year we take the opportunity to show our appreciation to our local veterans and meet at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 60 and share our time during a meal, talk about their experiences and sacrifice that has made Canada one of the best places on earth to live and hear from a guest speaker. This is open to members, past members or those considering joining our great association. Please join us!
- We also hold Canada Day and Remembrance Day activities as well as our annual Christmas Party.
We look forward to hearing from you with ideas that will help communicate our Conservative vision and bring a positive message to Burlington. Our candidate Jane Michael would appreciate your help in the coming months and she can be reached at email@example.com if you’d like to volunteer your time.
Please consider joining our association.
