Thanks to Make Your Chapter Better! Your Chapter Needs More Volunteers NOW! As we head closer to our Chapter Annual Meeting, planned for Tuesday, June 23, 2009 at the Region of Halton Centre in Oakville, 10 NEW VOLUNTEERS are needed ASAP!
To prepare the 2009-2010 Chapter Operating Plan and Budget, it is quite clear we MUST have new volunteers to be part of the Executive Team; volunteer to Phone Members; keep monthly meetings in Burlington with the new rotational Chapter Meeting format and other key activities. We hope that you can afford 2 hours/month to keep your Chapter moving forward!

CARP Supports Halton Chair for Regional Tax Freeze
Halton Regional Chair, Gary Carr is very happy that CARP Halton Chapter is supporting his motion to freeze taxes for the upcoming regional budget year. Carr noted, ?With an overwhelming response from you, it is encouraging that the motion will have more momentum to go ahead?. This is important for your Chapter to be connected with what is Happening in Halton.
Our June 23, 2009 Annual General Meeting is planned to be held at the Halton Regional Centre and we hope to hear more from Regional representatives about this matter and more.
