ATHABASCA & DISTRICT SENIORS SOCIETY NEWSLETTER February 24, 2023
The Board met on Valentines Day largely to make final plans and preparations for the AGM. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on Thursday, February 16th. The following members were elected to Board:
|Directors:||Greg Johnson, Roseann LaPlace, Shirley Nixon, Kathy Ponto, and Mary Pringle|
In addition, Irene Mihailuk and Faye Stevenson were elected to serve as next year’s auditors. The membership passed a motion to increase the membership fee to $15/person, effective January 1, 2024. A request to lobby the Town Council to reduce the speed limit on the street in front of the Seniors Centre to 40 km and the painting of steps in town was received for action by the Board. I announced that our Society will turn 50 on February 27 this year and that we will plan something to celebrate our 50th anniversary later in the year. Thanks goes out to all who attended our AGM, the kitchen help who made our lunch and cleaned up after us, those who volunteered to serve on the Board or to be auditors, and to those who contacted me after the meeting to tell me they would be willing to volunteer to help out in a variety of ways. If you would still like to volunteer, it is never to late. Just let us know.
In terms of announcements, our Pancake Breakfast is this coming Tuesday, February 28 from 7:30-10:00 am. The CRA is holding a free tax seminar on March 30 at 10:30 am at the Seniors Centre.
