"Our residents value safety, quality of life, environmental stewardship and preserving the character of our ‘Village in the Park.’"
This is Cloverdale Community League; the members are working to make their community hall reflect what their neighbourhood stands for.
Reg Kontz, Cloverdale Community League’s President, knows the value of putting your money where your mouth is to make this happen. Following this, the community league works to maintain and enhance these aspects in continue to honour the residents and draw more people to the community.
One of these aspects is the need for environmental stewardship. Their annual River Valley Clean Up always draws neighbours together. But recently, Cloverdale has a goal to do more with a focus on their well-used hall. They view energy efficiency as not only being a model of sustainability but also as a method to make their hall cheaper to manage, increase the comfort of the hall, and increasing the lifespan of the building. This then means that volunteer time and community league resources can be reinvested into the other things that the community loves, like sports and programs.
