On March 31st, 2009 the Charlo Recreation Council Inc. was dissolved and a new entity was created: A.C.A. (Active Charlo Actif). The mission of the A.C.A. is to promote the well-being of the citizens of Charlo, by improving the communication between all the organizations of the community. A.C.A. was incorporated as a non-profit organization in order to be able to register for provincial and/or federal programs or to apply for various licences and permits. In order to keep this incorporation, we need new board members who would meet at least a few times during the year with representatives of different organizations in order to work together for our community. Here is an example: Prepare a calendar of all the activities organized within the municipality in order to avoid having two activities the same day. You are invited to attend a very important meeting that will be held on Monday April 23rd at 7:00p .m. at the Charlo Municipal Building. Info: 684-7850
The Charlo Coastline Association Annual Meeting will be held on April 17th at 7:00 p.m. at the Charlo Municipal Building. All are welcome.
