December 2023 - January 2024
Welcome to our final issue of 2023! First, some expressions of gratitude. After serving the maximum number of terms in a row, John Gee and Karen Matthews have stepped down from the paper’s Board of Directors. Anita Jenkins has also decided to step down after five years on our board. I thank all of them for their invaluable service as volunteers.
We also welcome Diana van der Stoel, Beth Storheim, and John Kolkman to our board. Diana and Beth are new to the paper, while John has a long history that goes back almost to the paper’s beginnings. Thank you all for stepping up to serve on the board.
Speaking of volunteers, if you would like to sign up for a shift (or two) for our casino coming up on February 28th and 29th at Pure Casino Yellowhead, send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward your information to Colleen Chapman, our Volunteer Coordinator who is organizing the casino.
