It seems like a long time since we have all been together. I am hoping for nice spring weather so we will have a good turn out. I trust that you all had a nice Christmas and a good start to the New Year.
I am sure, that if you have read your National News letter that you will know that Jim McCarthy will be retiring from his position with the CCA in July. We are sure going to miss your calm manner of dealing with issues and all the work that you have done for the CCA. Your retirement is very much deserved.
Every month is awareness month, however May is our special time to really push awareness and get the word out. The committee is busy working on a campaign that you will hear about very soon.
So watch for information on what is happening. Here in Kelowna we are busy working on the conference that is getting very close. We will need many volunteers to help out so please consider helping make this the best ever conference. David Fowler is working with the vendors, Moyra Baxter is doing the registration and Ann Paterson is looking after the finances.
I have been working on getting the entertainment lined up as well as overseeing all that is happening. I will be working with the hotel on the menu. These are all big jobs and we will need help. Jessica Samuels will be helping with all the advertising, as this is her field. We have had flyers printed and will have some at the meeting for you all to put up in different locations.
See you at the meeting!
