A lot accomplished at the Rock Creek Fall Fair work bee

Rock Creek Fall Fair work bee sees a crowd of 28 doing a lot of work.

It wasn’t Gail McLean’s fault that notice of the fair workbee didn’t get ink in last week’s paper.

As secretary of the fair association she had sent a request in that we list a workbee in our community events section of the paper.

Unfortunately we misplaced the note here at the paper.

But 28 people did show up for three and a half hours on Sunday afternoon and a lot of work did get accomplished.

Two new pole lights went up, repairs were made to the stands, the chicken coop was given a thorough clean up, the beef barn got some TLC and the dais was scraped and made ready for paint.

Meanwhile at the pavilion, the kitchen was given a good cleaning and all the plates were counted and organized. They even had time to repair the steps at the back door there too.

“We are plugging away,” said McLean. “As soon as we can get paint we are planning another work bee.”

In other fair news, the bylaws are also getting a makeover. Much work has been accomplished, but McLean says the board wants the community to be aware of changes to how one becomes a member of the association.

The May regular monthly meeting saw two options under consideration.

a) To become a voting member, a person shall pay a nominal, annual membership fee (the amount decided annually at a general meeting or AGM), and complete their registration with the Secretary.

b) To become a voting member, a person shall attend two meetings and pay a nominal, annual membership fee (the amount decided annually at a general meeting or AGM), and complete their registration with the Secretary.  A person, who has attended two meetings, within the previous 12 months, paid their membership fee and registered with the Secretary, would have voting rights at their third meeting.

According to McLean the majority of the voting members approved the second option.

“This will be inserted into the final draft of the bylaws and will be forwarded to voting members for review, no later than 14 days prior to the June general meeting,” said McLean. “A vote on the final draft will then take place at the June general meeting.”
