The first Community Connections event.

Second Golden Celebrating Community event on Sept. 26

"Celebrating community one idea at a time: step 2" is what organizers are calling the upcoming Sept. 26 event at the Golden Seniors Centre.

“Celebrating community one idea at a time: step 2” is what organizer Karen Cathcart is calling the upcoming Sept. 26 event at the Golden Seniors Centre. Step 1 occurred on Jun. 18 and the 35 members of the community that participated identified four things that they would like Golden to be:

-prosperous, economically sustainable and socially dynamic for all walks of life

-environmentally friendly and safe while promoting healthy living for all

-vibrant and attractive

-maintain the small town look and feel

For the upcoming meeting, Goldenites will be invited to identify what the community can do and have in order to achieve these goals. Examples of items on the “to do” list include: to attract more residents, encourage tourism development and improve and create community recycle and compost programs. Examples of items on the “to have” list include: affordable housing, multicultural festivals and events, and an indoor pool and recreation centre.

Cathcart would like people in Golden to realize that productive development will not occur unless we all work together as a community.

“It’s the collective group and the collective whole that is going to support the ongoing sustainability of our community. That’s really the message that we are trying to [convey] to people.”

Cathcart is hoping for a good turnout for the event and would like to see productive and encouraging discussions about potential initiatives. She hopes that the meeting will be a good opportunity for people to learn, dialogue and share.

“We are all responsible for economic, social and environmental development,” said Cathcart.
