Rinks- With winter just around the corner, the current outdoor rinks are essential to cater to the needs of recreational skaters. Rinks Director would oversee both rinks in a volunteer capacity (Harvest Hills and Panorama Hills) with their committee and ensure it is flooded, shoveled, and properly maintained throughout the winter months. The Director would oversee the budget, attend Board Meetings, and head-up any future development plans.
Community Gardens- While gardens will soon be put to bed, the role of the Community Gardens co-ordinator is just getting started. Essential to the livelihood of Northern Hills, the Director volunteers to oversee the two gardens (Coventry Hills and Harvest Hills) and works with their committee to allocate plots to interested residents who wish to rent for the season, as well as general upkeep of the sites. The Director would oversee the budget, attend Board Meetings, and head-up any future development plans.
