Happy New Year!



I have left  District 6 logo on top to invite you to like our FB page and enjoy more articles that I share. I have also been sharing youth ideas on the gardenontario FB page. Hope you join them both and get some ideas you can use.

No more Activity reports needed!
Seemed unnecessary as most of that info is in the year end report for your society.
That means more folks will be eligible for grants!

New Grants have been approved by exec and soon will be real!

Youth Help grant has been rejigged and more can apply!  More details farther down newsletter.

*New classes with sponsors so more $ available, check out the schedule on gardenontario, under convention!

Police check policy for youth and vulnerable persons has been finalized so almost real! Long time in the works but so much had to get done in so many steps. Should be out for convention voting. 

So much is so close to completion. We have not forgotten you, we have got so much support from the OHA directors/exec, Most just has to wait for convention voting and approval, 

DON'T forget to update me if you have a change in email or persons who should be getting this newsletter!

N.B.    Cheques will be made payable to the OHA Parent Society/Club for the purposes described above.
Dont forget to send any youth info to both myself, youth@gardenontario.org and to editor@gardenontaro.org for the Trillium.
Thanks Wilmot for spotting an old policy ruling. Parents do NOT have to be members of a society to have youth in clubs/activities.
YOUTH MUST have permission forms signed by parent/guardian to attend.
Will be updating the gardenontario web shortly.
I have a speaker/workshop happening at convention! Hope you can all come, we are doing a milkweed seed ball workshop, sharing youth ideas, hoping to do a few crafts. Its all happening in London this year so give Convention a try!
