Privileges of Membership
The Springfield Lake Recreation Association is always open to anyone seeking membership. Since its founding in the 1960's, the SLRA has evolved from its humble beginnings as an entirely voluntary community group to one where both paid staff and a volunteer board work together to achieve the association's goals.
The Board of Directors, is composed of volunteers from the community that meet once a month to govern the association. Their main responsibilities are (a) to support & direct management, (b) lobby for and pursue interests of the community and (c) chair or participate on various committees; such as the Bar committee, Turf Advisory, Entertainment, Business, etc. As a member of the SLRA, you'll be entitled to vote on club issues at general and annual meetings, and nominate Board and/or Life members. As well, you are also eligible to serve on the Board of Directors.
Besides association-related privileges, you will also be entitled to a number of members-only discounts on virtually all types of events and programs put on by the SLRA. These include: reduced rates for various association dances (New Year's, Halloween etc.), our annual block-buster concert Weir Rockin, family events (Breakfast with Santa, Winter Carnival, Family Skate) and our Monte Carlo night. Along with these savings you'll be eligible to rent club-licensed facilities at member-rates and have free use of the member's lounge for special occasions. As well, you'll be given priority for generally first-come-first-serve events such as our annual golf tournament and children's day camps. Students in their graduating year at Millwood High who are children of members are also eligible to apply for our annual scholarship which is sponsored by the Road Dawgs Motorcycle Club.
The price to recieve these benefits and support your community at the same time is only $10 for an individual membership or $15 for a family per year. These fees basically pay for themselves when you just once take advantage of the reduced rates for rentals and community events/programs mentioned. Not only does it benefit you, but your support allows us to maintain and expand our community outreach.
