Boyle Street Community League Update

A Change of Staff

We have recently had a staff change. Maryam, our Facilities Director, is moving forward to bigger and better opportunities. She has learned much about running this facility, and that experience will help her in her future endeavours.

Please welcome Mimi Williams, Maryam’s replacement for the next three months. As we search for a new permanent Facilities Director, come by and say hi to Mimi and be sure to pick up your FREE Community League membership.

Alf is the President of the Boyle Street Community League.
