Boyle Street Community League’s annual general meeting was held April 13 at the Boyle Street Community Centre in the Plaza. Guests Ron Allen and Tim Haak brought an update on the new EPINSS Bridgeway II building. Mary Ann Debrinski brought a Quarters Plan update. Joelle Reiniger gave a report on community development issues over the year. The meeting discussed the community league’s concerns about the proposed Alldritt 80-storey tower development.
New staff members Charmaine Logan (Facility Co-ordinator) and Ester Malzahn (Grants and Community Outreach) were introduced. Charm and Ester bring a wealth of experience to our community and facility needs, so more updates are to come!
The budget and financial statements were passed. We thanked Karen Jackson for her years of dedicated service to the board, as well as Christine Poirier, our former Facility Coordinator, who has gone on to a CRC job with the City.
The new board was elected by acclamation. Alf White is in his second year of a two-year term as President, and the new board are: Candas Jane Dorsey, Sharon Pasula, Jordan Reiniger, Curtis Cardinal, and Ron Allen. Board positions are to be confirmed at the first post-election board meeting. BSCL welcomes the new board and thanks them for their willingness to serve. With new board and new staff, we look forward to a dynamite year.
