We held our Annual General Meeting on October 21st, 2015. It was a time to celebrate another great year made possible through the generosity of our community and the hard work of our staff and volunteers. This past year, we served 56,529 meals, helped 149 individuals and families find a new home, and had over 5,000 volunteer hours. It was a year with many challenges, but we are proud of what we were able to accomplish this year. We still dream of seeing the number of meals served, and the number of people in need of housing decrease to zero, and we will continue to work towards that end. Come join us!
We also held our annual board elections, and welcomed 3 new board members. With that, we wanted to say a thank-you and good-bye to our three outgoing board members – Alexis Losie, Jacqueline Hatherly, and Riva Farrell-Racette. Each of these board members served multiple terms and came to Carmichael Outreach at a time of financial instability. Their hard work along with their colleagues has left us in a much stronger financial position and we are grateful for their services over these key years.
We would like to welcome three new board members:
– Bill Neher (elected to a three year term)
– Eldon Janzen (elected to a three year term)
– Tino Radutu (elected to a three year term)
We would also like to welcome one returning board member:
– Adam Levine (elected to a three year term)
Congratulations to our new and returning board members, and thank-you to our outgoing board members who have served us well.
