Thank you all for this opportunity to be your president. It has been a fast learning experience already.
First of all, with great regret, I have had to accept the resignations of April Takacs, Rebecca Atkinson and David Dowd. The three of them gave their all to SAM and we wish them the best of luck. April and Dave will still be around as long-standing members and Rebecca will soon be a new mom.
I spent two days with the United Way Board training, had our first executive meeting, enjoyed a great perogie lunch with Games Day and spoke at Momondays.
I hope to see everyone at the Wheel and Walk on June 25th and the BBQ and Sidewalk Sale August 10th. Now’s the time to clean out your treasures so someone else can enjoy them.
Remember we are open 9-4 Monday to Friday. Drop in anytime!! Have a great summer!!
Update from Our Auxiliary Chair
The evening of Monday, the 8th of May was well spent at momondays, which was hosted at
Celebrations Dinner Theatre on Pembina Hwy. The Stroke Recovery Association of Manitoba Inc. (SAM) was the charity of choice which meant that we made money (to the tune of $483.00) on a 50/50 draw and the art and knitted goods that were sold.
There were six motivational speakers on the schedule, one of whom was our own Terry Wilson. She claims to be “not a speaker”, but held the attention of the full audience the whole time with her story and even elicited laughter and a standing ovation. We’ve been told that an ovation is a rare occurrence. She made us proud. Thank you Terry.
