Council has noted that a person who claims to be visiting has come to The Colonial Property with a dog. Dogs are prohibited on The Colonial property and should Council confirm which Unit Owner is permitting this will receive a Fine according to our Bylaws.

Council has reviewed the property recently, and we are seeing alot of peanut shells etc. Bylaw 5.4 is no feeding of animals/wild life from your strata lot or the limited common property. Feeding wildlife not only encourages them to come here for a food source, but they can cause alot of damages to the buildings as a whole. Whomever is feeding the wildlife will be fined should this continue.

Backing into parking stalls is prohibited on The Colonial property as per our Bylaws and Rules. Owners, guests and visitors will be towed should this not be adhered too.

HALLOWEEN CANDY

AT THE COLONIAL, WE DO NOT HAVE TRICK OR TREATERS GOING DOOR TO

DOOR, AS IT IS HARDER FOR SOME OWNERS TO GET UP AND DOWN STAIRS TO

ANSWER THE DOOR. INSTEAD WE HAVE OWNERS DONATE CANDY TREATS OR

GIVE A CASH DONATION TO GO TOWARDS BUYING TREATS. A GROUP OF LADIES

GET TOGETHER AND MAKE HALLOWEEN CANDY BAGS TO GIVE OUT TO THE

KIDS ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT. OWNERS ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THE

CLUBHOUSE OCTOBER 31ST AND HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE/TEA WITH GOODIES

AND SEE THE KIDS COSTUMES AND HAND OUT THE CANDY BAGS.

IF YOU ARE DONATING CANDY YOU CAN PLACE THE DONATION ON THE KITCHEN

TABLE IN THE CLUBHOUSE. IF YOU WISH TO DONATE CASH, PLEASE DROP OFF

YOUR CASH DONATION WITH ANNA LEVESQUE IN UNIT #5. WE WOULD

APPRECIATE ALL DONATIONS TO BE IN NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 27TH 2017.

THANK YOU.

Motion to adjourn at 8:15pm by George Crysler and seconded by Sharon Bull
