In just a few days we will be holding a by-election to fill the two vacant seats on the LSB board. The by-election will be held on November 5 at 7:00 pm at the Legion in Port Loring. I am reaching out to you all to encourage you to attend this meeting. Although currently we are at only 3 board members, we are off to a good start and we are searching for 2 special people to join us on the board. If you feel that this is something you would like to be involved in or if you know someone who would be perfect for the job, please attend the meeting and make your voice count. It would also be very appreciated if you could help spread the word about the meeting to those who don't have access to the internet. I hope to see you all there! ~ Debbie Keetch
And as always, if you have any questions or concerns please email email@example.com
A By-Election will be held to fill the two vacant spots on the Loring & District Local Services Board due to the resignation of previous Board members. This is an important election, the community needs your vote. Join us November 5, 2018 7pm at the Port Loring Legion.

Bylaw 1997-03: To be eligible to vote on any matters of the Board, you must be an inhabitant as defined below:
An Inhabitant of a Board area is defined as a permanent resident or a property owner in the Board area, who is a Canadian Citizen and at least eighteen (18) years of age. An individual who is a Canadian Citizen and who owns property within the Board area but resides outside the Board area is considered an inhabitant. A person who rents rather than owns a residence is usually a permanent resident and is therefore also an inhabitant.
It is with regret that we must announce the resignation of two of our board members. Stephen Brushey resigned as of Oct 6 and Tracey Watson resigned as of October 18. We will be holding a by-election on November 5 at 7 pm at the Port Loring Legion to fill the 2 seats on the board. Hope to see you all there!
The Community Centre is still closed and will remain closed until we receive a second opinion from a structural engineer as to what if anything needs to be done, and recommended work has been completed. Once the building has been deemed safe for public occupancy, the building will reopen.
Currently, with the help of a couple of community members (thanks Tim Gherke), we are compiling a list of specifics that should be looked at by a structural engineer to determine the overall condition of the building and specifically the roof. When the list is completed it will be sent out to structural engineers requesting a written quote. These quotes will be presented and discussed at our next general public meeting. The process is long and complex but we are working on it!
This message is in keeping with our determination to keep the community up to date on the status of the community centre and other concerns as they arise. ~Debbie Keetch
Please remember, if you have any questions or concerns you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer it as quickly as we can.

Earl Reading who is a board member of our LSB applied for a grant on behalf of our community. He applied to the FCC (Farm Credit Canada) for a grant to help cover the cost of a new HVAC system for our Community Centre. His application was successful and today, representatives of FCC came and presented to the Board a cheque for $15,000!
