President’s Message

It is the end of an era!!! As the summer comes to a close, so does an era. Please join me in thanking Lance Burns for all his hard work for the last 8 years as the president of our community league. THANKS!!! This is league is better off for all that you do!

Before I get too far ahead of myself, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Emma Woolner and I am the new President of the Rio Terrace Community League (RTCL). I moved into the neighbourhood in 2013 and have been on the board in a variety of capacities for 7 years.  I started in the social/programs director position, for 2 years, and have been the board’s secretary for the last 5 years. At the annual general meeting this past week, I was elected to the president’s role. Lance will remain on the board as Past President to support me in this new role. It has been my pleasure to work with the Board of Directors for the past 7 years and I look forward to working with them in this new capacity. Thank you for trusting me with this responsibility.

On the business end, the league needs a secretary. This role would be great for someone starting out with volunteering!!! We are also always on the hunt for general volunteers for when events start back up. League events do not happen without the time and effort of volunteers. Please consider volunteering. If you’re interested, contact information for the board can be found at:

As we look towards moving back to normal (whatever that means), we ask that you remember that some are at a higher risk (and, as such, are more nervous) than others. Please be patient and kind as we navigate through these unprecedented times.

As always, memberships can be purchased at and Be kind and we’ll see you in the neighbourhood!


President, Rio Terrace Community League
