11th Annual General Meeting (AGM) – Wed., Nov. 21, 2018 at 7 PM

Dear Members and Residents of Anarchist & Sidley Mountains,

We are announcing our 11th Annual General Meeting (AGM) – to be held at the Summit Centre, on Wed. November 21, 2018 at 7 PM.

This meeting legally requires 25% of our members be present or to have provided a proxy to another person to vote on their behalf. If you can’t be at the meeting, please complete the proxy form, and return email to Mark (mckenney@vip.net) to provide a name of whom may vote on your behalf.  There are no sensitive issues / decisions that will be voted on at the meeting. It is a legal requirement of the BC Society’s Act, to have an AGM each year. You will be asked to elect your Directors for the upcoming year.

On a personal note, I will be resigning as President and as a Director of the Society, after this AGM. I’ve been on the Board and the President of AMCS for 11 years, so its time for me to step aside. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being the President of your Society, and I will continue to participate as a member, and as a volunteer. We have a wonderful community  – and that is because of the people that live here. Thank you.

Mark McKenney, President, Anarchist Mountain Community Society   250-495-4592

Are you interested in Extra Gentle Yoga classes?

Hello Anarchist and Sidley Mountain residents
Some of you may already be aware that I teach two classes per week at the Summit Centre on the mountain. Yoga happens Tuesday mornings at 9:30, and Pilates Thursday mornings at 9:30. These classes suit pretty much anyone who’s looking to improve their balance, strength, and flexibility. Options and modifications are provided for most exercises.
Over the past 3 years of teaching on the mountain, I’ve sometimes been asked about teaching an extra-gentle yoga class. This would suit people with injuries or chronic pain, or just people wishing to explore gentle beneficial exercise for mind and body. A gentle yoga class helps people breathe easier, relax, and slowly improve their balance, strength and flexibility.
As with my other classes, the drop-in would be $10 cash, and the length of the class would be one hour.
Please respond to this survey so I have an idea of how many people would be interested in such a class. If you have questions, feel free to send me an email.
Thanks,
Suzy Williamson

FireSmart Committee

Dear Residents of Anarchist and Sidley mountain,

 Your FireSmart Committee is a non-profit group, that is part of the Anarchist Mountain Community  Society (AMCS).  FireSmart supports initiatives to aid our community with knowledge and activities to lessen the impacts of a wildfire in our community. Further information on these activities can be found at https://anarchistmountaincommunitysociety.com/firesmart

 One of the main programs of the group is the running of the Wapiti Pit for yard and brush refuse disposal. This activity greatly enhances the fire safety of our community by having combustible materials taken and disposed of in one location. In the past the FireSmart Committee has received government grants to support certain activities, such as hiring an excavator to manage the brush pile before burning it.  Every year hundreds of loads of brush are brought to the Wapiti Pit by residents, with this material burned under the supervision of our Fire Dept. when it is safe to do so. FireSmart is funded by the AMCS to maintain the Wapiti Pit and to support the BBQ and knowledge session at the annual FireSmart Day, and come from annual membership dues. We are still seeking government support and any thoughts on other grant options would be welcome. We hope that residents will continue to support FireSmart by being members of AMCS.

Mark McKenney, President, Anarchist Mountain Community Society  250-495-4592
