    CHARA, your local community association, organizes several community events every year as well as managing and maintaining the community rink adjacent to the Carleton Heights Community Centre.However, we can’t do it alone and we need extra hands if we want to continue serving the community as we have in the past.

    We are searching for volunteers to fill open positions on our Board of Directors. We are, at the present time, looking to fill 2 open spots before the end of the year. We will try to accommodate candidate’s interests if possible. CHARA holds meetings on the 4th Tuesday of the month starting at 6:30 PM.

    As well, we are looking for volunteers to work on the community rink. Once again this year, the community rink will open on December 15 if the weather is willing! We need volunteers to help us prepare the rink as well as for supervision during the winter.

    Drop us a line at if you are interested in this opportunity.

    Come work with us and have a say in the future of your community.
