2019 was a big transition year for SSCA Communications. A new website with a simplified, self-serve portal for updates and online look-up functionality was launched and there was a dramatic increase in the number of online payments through the combined Membership Directory and payment portal. This has contributed greatly to reducing administrative effort and expenses.
We also heard your feedback on the replacement of the annual Yearbook with an online Phonebook and that you would prefer to have some form of a hard copy Directory to keep by the cottage phone. So, the Board has asked the Communications Committee to develop and deliver a simplified Yearbook/Directory in Spring 2020.
It will still be as important as ever for you to keep your membership info on the website up-to-date in 2020. Paid members will see their name in this new Directory and will receive it in the May time frame.
With the return to a paper Directory, there is a great opportunity for a volunteer with publishing experience to lead up its production in 2020. Interested people should reach out to either Eric Armour or Naomi Campbell for more information.
Looking for a lasting gift for family, friends, neighbours or young adults?! Membership to the SSCA is a great and inexpensive gift for anyone.
Membership is an opportunity to become more knowledgeable in government and ratepayer issues and more involved in Association events, programs and youth activities.
Young adults may join in on special events and environmental events.
Dues for 2020
Full Members $165.00
Associate Members (under 30) $50.00
Don’t delay, join the SSCA today!

This fall saw the demolition and removal of the condemned Dock House at the SSCA Community Centre. (Click to see a photo). The land surrounding where the Dock House was, is now cleared. The existing footprint of the Dock House is safe and ready for next season. Land that was disturbed has been graded back to how it was and is ready for seeding in the spring. There is a small area of water where the building once was. This will be addressed in the spring for safety reasons.
We have also purchased and installed a recycled sea container placed on the back from the south side of the School House. This will be painted a forest green in the spring so that it will blend into the background. We will be storing all the items that are now stored in the schoolhouse in this container. Thus, allowing the space in the schoolhouse to return to its original configuration.
We are looking into staffing for next season. We are in talks with a possible caretaker and with summer student staff.
Finally, in the new year, I am reconvening the Property Committee so that the next steps for the Association property can be developed for the Board then membership to reflect on.
Chair, Property Committee
