Why Volunteer with MLCA?
Are you a plumber? Great at organization? Do you like painting or general renovations? Do you like to clean? Love sports? Putting projects together? Do you have a skill that you would love to share?
McKenzie Lake Community Association is a not-for-profit Community Centre that focuses on bringing fun, affordable programs and events to the community of McKenzie Lake as well as the surrounding area. As we head into spring, we would like to focus on what helps make a center like this run, and while there are many factors, one of the most important is volunteers.
As you may be able to imagine, keeping a facility of this size running, safe, and in good repair is no small feat. It takes many hands. We pride ourselves on our community focus and becoming a hub, welcoming to all who use us. To keep costs down and be able to pass those cost savings on to the community we are always in need of volunteers.
What do we need volunteers for you may ask … the answer is everything! We are always in need of skilled and unskilled volunteers. In the next couple of months, we are looking to recruit volunteers for:
• Soccer program for 3 to 11-year olds
• Community Clean Up
• Playground Replacement (33 Mt Aberdeen Close)
• “Spring Cleaning” of the Facility
• Landscaping and weeding
• Organization of Storage rooms and buildings
• General maintenance and repairs
While this is not a complete list of who and what we are looking for, this gives an idea of the need we have for those who are willing to give their time back to their community.
If you would like to help out, please contact the office at or 403.257.1823.
Since starting with MLCA in September, I have been amazed at the spirit of this community and am proud to be a part of it. Thank you to all current, past and future volunteers for helping to make MLCA what it is and believing in making it what it could be.
