KILLARNEY-GLENGARRY IS A LIVING, BREATHING, CHANGING COMMUNITY. THE MORE VOICES WE HEAR, THE MORE WE CAN DO TO ENSURE THAT OUR COMMUNITY IS ONE THAT WE ALL WANT TO STAY IN AND HAVE OUR CHILDREN GROW UP IN.

Your Community Association is a group of volunteers that are trying to help plan for that future. Part of that planning process is formalizing what we are doing with goals and objectives like those below.

If you have feedback on these – we would love to hear from you! Please email our President.
