The Hubbards Barn Association (HBA) is a non-profit organization that preserves the Hubbards Barn and Community Park and provides access to the property as a valued and valuable community asset. The HBA leases the land on which the Barn and Park are situated from the Aspotogan Heritage Trust (AHT) for the benefit of heritage, recreation, and cultural programming in the area.
Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of local community members, and drawing on contracted management services for some service delivery, the HBA facilitates and supports a seasonal Farmers’ Market (May through October), annual community activities, special event rentals, and use by community groups for their own activities.
The HBA helps to enrich the quality of life in Hubbards and area, and in so doing shares a community development role as part of an ecology of local, not-for-profit organizations and community groups.
Much of our operational activity is funded with revenue generated from Hubbards Farmers’ Market vendor fees and by special event rentals.
In the past, special projects have been funded by grants secured from local, provincial, or federal governments as well as from local foundations.
A more recent and ongoing partnership has resulted in ongoing funding from the Bay Treasure Chest Association. Click here to learn more about our affiliation with the BTCA.
Membership in the Hubbards Barn Association is open to anyone. An annual HBA membership costs $10, and expires each year at the HBA’s Annual General Meeting.
As a member, your annual fee provides financial support for the work of the HBA. Your membership also demonstrates community support of the Hubbards Barn and Community Park, and gives you a voice in the running of the HBA and the management of the facility. Many members also choose to become volunteers.
The HBA is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors that usually meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. The HBA’s Annual General Meeting of members, during which elections are made to the Board, takes place each March.
