Edmonds Group Attracts New Members

The Edmonds Town Centre Business and Community Association held a breakfast meeting/membership drive this morning that was a great success.

Held at Boardwalk Gaming at Highgate Mall, the event attracted over 60 people, including many representatives from the Burnaby RCMP and Fire Department.

Mayor Derek Corrigan gave a rousing speech about how the Edmonds neighborhood was on its way to revitalization. We are expecting a new library and a swimming pool to be built in the area in the next few years.

The association has been doing great job working with the city, RCMP, firefighters and other groups such as the Emdmonds Lions in giving the neighborhood a boost. It was gratifying to see application forms for membership piling up as people left the meeting.

I suspect membership nearly doubled today!
