BBQ, Annual General Meeting (AGM) and new by-laws


Save the date for our annual BBQ and Annual General Meeting (AGM) on June 1 at Orchard Park Public School, starting at 6:00 pm.

There has been a change to the provincial legislation governing non profit corporations like ours.  We have worked with a lawyer to draft new by-laws. 

The new by-laws are available for your information.  They need to be confirmed by a vote at the AGM.  The old by laws can be found at

We are also taking this opportunity to change our legal name from “Lower Medway Valley Ratepayers Group Inc” to “Orchard Park/Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association”.

If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Levin.

Community Tree Planting at Sisters of the Precious Blood – Friday, October 14

The Sisters of the Precious Blood are having a tree planting (almost 150 trees and shrubs) supported by ReForest London on Friday, October 14 from 10:00 am-noon.  The neighbourhood is invited to help with the planting and mulching of the new trees.  No planting experience is necessary – just bring work gloves. 

ReForest London asks that volunteers register just to ensure they know how many volunteers to expect and to be able to reach out if there is adverse weather and the event needs to be postponed or cancelled.
