Are you community-minded? Are you interested in helping to make positive change in the Cultus Lake Park community? There are several interesting opportunities to volunteer in many of the Park’s committees.

The committees are:

Community Events and Engagement Committee

The purpose of this select committee is to create experiences that promote community spirit and pride in Cultus Lake Park. This committee plans and implements a wide variety of activities throughout the Park, promoting engagement from both residents and non-residents. The committee is chaired by Commissioner Lamb.

You can see the Terms of Reference for this crucial (and fun!) committee here.

Operational and Financial Core Review Committee

This select committee provides options to the Board with respect to the provision, alteration or elimination of core operating systems. This includes, but is not limited to, the financial accounting systems, budgeting and reporting systems, and any contracts that the Park has entered into. The expectation is that the findings of this committee will recognize the financial implications of such decisions for the current budget and beyond. The committee is chaired by Commissioner Renwick with Commissioner Smit as Vice Chair.

You can see the Terms of Reference for this key committee here.

Environmental and Public Area’s Planning Committee

The purpose of this standing committee is to review and assist in developing the Main Beach/Foreshore Master Plan and the Urban Forest Management Plan. The committee is chaired by Commissioner Bauer with Commissioner Payeur as the Vice Chair.

You can see the Terms of Reference for this valued committee here.

The Cultus Lake Park community is engaged and proactive. Your voice matters and your input, ideas and participation in these committees is crucial to the fabric of the Park. Each of the committees provides key feedback, insight and assistance for the Board and staff about how the Park can be improved, maintained and managed.

If you have a few hours a month that you can contribute, we encourage you to consider participating as a part of one of the committees. Here is a link to the volunteer application form. As a member of a committee, you will become a part of the Park’s legacy – helping us to be the best that we can be!

The deadline to apply is January 9, 2020.

A Year of Fun!

This blog post was developed in response to a request from the Cultus Lake Park Community Events and Engagement Committee – which is made up of community volunteers.

The Cultus Lake Park Community Events and Engagement Committee (CEEC) knocked it out of the Park (pun intended!) in 2019. They had an amazing turnout for the two-night Cultus Lake Christmas event. They received a lot of positive feedback from the event that kicks off the holiday season.

There was record-breaking attendance at Cultus Lake Day. There were some fun additions to this annual event – the pony rides, live bands in the expanded Entertainment Garden, and the Rotary Train, to name a few.

There was an Easter egg hunt in the Park, and the CEEC spent hours preparing the candy bags for the kids. Although the weather was a bit of a challenge, it didn’t stop dozens of families from coming out and having fun at the three Movie Nights this summer.

The CEEC painted the front of the Community Barn and developed the huge logo that is now on the building, and the Cultus Lake Summer Farmers’ Market moved into the Plaza. The Farmers’ Market gets better each year. Wait until you see what they have planned for 2020!

Last summer’s Party in the Plaza was a lot of fun – just ask the hundreds of residents and visitors who danced and sang the night away with tribute artist Elvis Elite.

What many people don’t realize is just how much work it takes to put on these events. The volunteers on the CEEC spend a great deal of time and effort planning and holding the events. It takes hundreds and hundreds of hours – and they give up nights and weekends to meet, plan and then implement the plan. On the day of the event, they are there – making sure that everything runs smoothly so that locals and visitors can have a whole lot of fun at Cultus Lake Park.

The Cultus Lake Park Board is committed to engaging and connecting with the local community – and creating events that are family-friendly and well-run are a part of this. These events also help to welcome visitors from the Fraser Valley, Lower Mainland and throughout the world – allowing them to have a positive, family-oriented experience at Cultus Lake Park.

A big thank you goes out to the Community Events and Engagement Committee members, the volunteers who come on the day of the events to help out, and to Cultus Lake Park Board Chair Lamb – who also chairs this committee.
