MVCA Annual General Meeting May 28, 2015
Celebrating our 5th Year as the
Manotick Village & Community Association
The Manotick Village and Community Association currently has almost 500 members. All members and Manotick-area residents who would like to become members ($10/person or $15/family) are cordially invited to our Annual General Meeting on May 28 at 7 p.m. at the Manotick Legion.
Come out and help us celebrate our 5th Anniversary, hear from our directors and share your thoughts about Manotick and the work of the MVCA.
Come and tell us what you would like the MVCA to start doing, continue doing or do more of. Discover how you can volunteer at our community events, including Shiverfest, the Soapbox Derby and Picnic-in-the Park. Learn about and sign up for our "Keep it to 40km/h" road safety program. We also have volunteer opportunities in our advocacy program for members who are passionate about helping shape Manotick's future.
The more volunteers we have, the more the MVCA can do for our community.
The AGM is also an opportunity for you to meet and engage the board of directors and to nominate and elect new directors.
The keynote address will be given by Councillor Scott Moffatt.

Truckin' through Manotick, not so much across the Vimy Memorial Bridge
The MVCA is committed to urge the city to lighten the load on the Manotick bridges and provide improved truck access to the new Vimy Memorial Bridge. We need your support to make this happen. Rural residents and businesses who have not already done so are asked to make their views known by sending a brief note to their ward councilor at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and to me at president@manotickVCA.org .
