Community Members, 

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer weather as before we know it fall will be here.  Following the 2017 AGM, I was elected President of the Northstar Residents Association (NSRA) by your board of directors. I am excited and eager to serve the NSRA in the coming year. 

I would like to start by thanking Ray Hineman for his past year as President and continuing to stay on in the Past President role to help guide the new board members and maintain continuity. Howard Tse and Dragana Andjelkovic also served a one year term and contributed greatly to the board. 

We started off the year introducing a new website and a new online payment system. Although we have had a few glitches, the online payment system is a huge success. We will be adding online program registration for the fall (read the 2017 Fall Panoramic Perspectives newsletter for full details) and a facility rental availability calendar shortly. Please take the time to either create or update your online account. It will make the registration process much quicker each time you use it.  Full details on how to create and/or update your account are in this newsletter and on our website at  We will be keeping you up-to-date via email communication, however, for more details or current information please check the website on a regular basis. 

The community centre has also hosted several successful events this past spring and summer: 

Easter Egg Hunt
Mothers Day Event
Community Cleanup
Fathers Day Event
Canada Day Celebration 

Facility staff and volunteers have done an amazing job. Thank you for your hard work.  I would also like to also recognize Northern Hills Community Association and the City of Calgary for helping with the Community Cleanup event. 

A change we made at the AGM this year was to add two additional board members. Your current board is now 9 members: 

Dan Green – President
Ray Hineman – Past President
Paul Vogel – Vice President
Dale Savenko – Treasurer
Terry Buzila – Secretary
Ron Buchan – Communications
David Campbell – Director
Glen Pipke – Director
Maryna Roshchenko – Director 

We have created several sub committees so all the board members can focus on different aspects of the operation to make recommendations and plans for the future. If you have suggestions please do not hesitate to contact the board. 

The Board of Directors is looking forwarding to serving you and working towards building your community. If you would like to join the Board or have any suggestions, please send an email to and we would be happy to discuss them with you.

Yours truly,

Dan Green
Northstar Residents Association
