1960

The first boarded rink was erected with financial assistance from the City and in the same year.

1961

The first President of the association was elected, and the association was renamed to include the three communities: Brentwood, Collingwood and Charleswood.

1961

Buildings were erected due to the hard work and financial support of community members – a total of $35.00 was asked from each family and down payments as low as $3.00 and post-dated cheques for $1.00 per month were accepted.  When that still was not sufficient to complete paying for the construction, the Royal Bank provided a loan for $15,000 backed by $9500.00 in promissory notes from co-signers in the community willing to commit $100.00.

1966

The loan was completely paid back and a mortgage burning ceremony was held at the Winter Carnival that year.
