KILLARNEY COMMUNITY CENTRE SOCIETY

A Message from the President of Killarney Community Centre Society

Killarney Community Centre Society (KCCS) serves to enhance the Killarney Community Mission Statement: The Killarney Community Centre Society fosters community spirit and better quality of life by supporting social, educational and physical activities for the whole community, with accessibility and fairness for all.

KCCS Governance: The Killarney Board of Directors consists of a group of people elected at the Annual General Meeting of the Society. It establishes policy and governs the organization in the most effective and efficient manner possible. The KCCS Board of Directors makes and reviews policy, delegates action to committees and to staff. The Board has general charge and control of the Community Centre programs, memberships, funds, equipment and assets. It is accountable to the membership of the Society. Membership in the Society is open to the public. From time to time, KCCS lobbies the various levels of government for improvements that enhance the safety and/or the availability of facilities or programs for the community. The grants that we receive help us subsidize programs to help keep registration costs down. The relationship that the KCCS Board has with the Vancouver Park Board is set out in a Joint Operating Agreement. This agreement divides responsibility for the activities in the Centre, the Rink, and the Pool.

Revenues and Expenditures: The revenues raised by KCCS either through programs, government grants, Bingo grants, or private donations are reinvested into the Killarney community in a number of ways such as: purchases of equipment, supplies, and in some cases capital expenditures. For more information on the Society or how to participate with the KCCS, please contact Frieda Trip at (604) 718-8210. I remain yours sincerely, Terry Kirstiuk President KCCS

Don’t be disappointed… Great courses with excellent instructors sometimes “pass away” to cancellation because people wait until the last minute to register. Courses are based on a minimum number of registrants so the course can recover costs. If you wait and we don’t make the minimum you may never see that course again. Please Register Early!! We give Full Refunds for all cancelled classes.

Described as "One of the Best Performers of her generation" by the Vancouver International Children’s Festival, Marnie performs funky, educational and interactive tunes that puts ants in your pants! Each song tells a story and has an action, keeping children focused and physical. Instantly, children will be dancing, singing and signing along.
