Community Member
of the Month
Thilly Pronk

March 2021

This month we recognize Thilly Pronk as our Community Member of the Month. Thilly has been involved with Canyon Meadows for almost two decades, starting in 2002, when her friend Faye Rundle invited her to volunteer at Bingo.

Thilly is a committed volunteer and has played many different roles over the years. She is always ready with a hello and a smile
when you run into her at the hall.

Despite not living in the neighborhood, Tilly has continued to be involved in the Canyon Meadows community. She has spent many hours helping run our Bingo events, including the organization and recruitment of other volunteers; each event requires 13 people to operate! Now that Bingo, like everything else, has gone virtual, Thilly continues to help run the event online.

In addition to supporting our Bingo events, which help keep the lights on at the centre, she lends a hand with setup for AGMs and other major events. “I do what needs to be done,” Thilly says. “If I’m at the hall and I can do it, I’ll do it.”

For the most part, Thilly is driven by the desire to help and be of service to others. Of course via volunteering, she also has had the opportunity to meet new people and witness some exciting moments – once at Bingo, someone won $20,000! But it’s the work itself and the people she meets that keep Thilly coming back and helping our community thrive.

Thanks for all you do, Thilly!

Dear Valued Community Member,

In 2024 we are going to see some changes to our Community Memberships, including a new website and fee structure.   

With this upgrade, we will be implementing a fee change, which is required for a few reasons. First, our current processes are time consuming and inefficient and requires extra volunteer hours.
Second, the new fees will assist in covering the cost associated with this new software. And finally, we have not increased our membership rates in over 30 years. Thank you for your understanding and support with this modest increase!

If you are struggling to pay for a membership, please reach out to us, as we have some funding options. It is important to us that you continue with your membership as you are valued and appreciated in our community.

Effective January 31, 2024, the annual membership costs (+GST) are as follows:

Family - $35
Individual - $25
Senior - $20

Memberships are valid for 1 year from purchase date and represent 1 household. Please note that if you have a current membership, you do not need to purchase a new membership at this time, the price increase will occur upon renewal.

Again, thank you for being a member of Canyon Meadows Community Association.

If you have any questions about these changes, please reach out to our Membership Director, Baylea Willan at memberships@cmca.ca
