Thank you everyone for another great year. During the annual general meeting discussing the house’s 2018/19 financials and the repairs & improvements made to the house over the last year, and answering some questions from members, the new board was elected. Please welcome the 2019/20 board of directors: Liz McIlwaine (president), Elinor Rush (treasurer), Rachel Abs (secretary), Bruce Downey (maintenance coordinator), Louise Alexander (jack of all trades), and Eric De Domenico (our new addition).
The Kingston Community House at 99 York is a not for profit organization providing safe inclusive meeting space for community groups and organizations. For thirty three years our house – your house — has been providing low-cost meeting space for hundreds of groups, allowing like-minded people to come together to learn from one another, to share resources and trade skills. Located in downtown Kingston, this welcoming facility operates 7 days a week, serving the Kingston community. We are operated by a volunteer board.
We believe that everyone has the capacity to take responsibility for themselves given the proper tools and encouragement. An integral part of the neighbourhood, a typical day could include a cooking class, a meditation group, a social justice movie and an autism support group. Tomorrow…an art class, English lessons and a 12 step program.
Please drop in and see the house, talk to our coordinator and see for yourself… a welcoming space for your group or organization!
