We had a record turn-out for our annual AGM on December 3…we’re not sure if it’s that fact that this has been one of our busiest years ever, or if word leaked out in advance that Rosie was once again bringing her now-legendary pineapple rum cake.
Douglas Hardie and Gord Fuller remain chair and vice-chair. Board members at large Charles Torhjelm, Larry Gambone, Pat Portsmouth, Sydney Robertson and Barbara Densmore and Secretary Eldeen Cornell remain. They are joined by newcomer Sandra Zuccolini, who will be taking the treasurer’s reins from retiring Peter Presotto. Peter has been such a rock of support over the years, we will miss him greatly and hope he sends postcards from his travels.
Once we realized that we needed someone impartial to lead the voting, Leonard Krog, MLA stepped in to take charge, suggesting that if the BC election process was as cooperative as the SECA process, politics would be a lot more pleasant. He was joined by MLA Doug Routley, who is the new representative for the south part of the South End.
In case you missed the meeting, here’s Douglas’ look back to 2008 and forward to 2009.
