We are excited to have our 2015 AACF Annual General Meeting this evening at the Bandshell Community room at 6:30pm. Everyone welcome!
Board member, Judi Wright presented a cheque to James Allen, General Manager at the East Elgin Community Complex for their Seniors Day Out programming. One Tuesday of the month, organizers welcome Seniors from the community for activities, workshops and snack. The Aylmer Area Community Foundation is proud to support the local programming at the East Elgin Community Complex.
It was exciting to see a ‘thank you’ to the Aylmer Area Community Foundation for our People Who Make a Difference awards. In the March edition of Elgin This Month, Hills Pharmacy have thanked the AACF for the honour. We are excited for the year ahead and the support we have received from our local business community. Thank you Hills Pharmacy!

Three local families have set up a fund to create a legacy in our community.
Dr. Dennis Boadway- The Boadway Family Fund
Harvey Tribe- The Harvey and Kathleen Tribe Family Fund
Jeff Wiebenga- The Jeff and Nicole Wiebenga Family Fund
Aylmer Area Community Foundation pools charitable gifts in a capital fund to create a lasting legacy for the future of our community. The Foundation grants money to organizations and projects to the Town of Aylmer, Township of Malahide and the Municipality of Bayham.
Creating a “Named Fund” is yet another way to contribute to the Foundation. A fund can be set up and named after an organization or family. By establishing a Family Fund, people have created a legacy to the community on behalf of themselves and their heirs. To establish a Named Fund in honour of a family or organization, a minimum $1,000 is required over 5 years.
We are encouraging other families in the community to set up a named fund.
The East Elgin Community Complex will be running a youth March Break Day Camp from March 14-18, 2016! Join the fun for skating, crafts, games and more. From 8am-5pm Monday to Friday over the March break, children aged 6-12 years old are invited; the cost is only $20/day. Registration in advance is required to the EECC.
