Senior board Convention.

At last Sunday’s senior board convention, treasurer for the last six years, Mr. Jim Meehan stepped down from his position. The professional manner in which Jim carried out his duties as treasurer is a credit to him and this has been acknowledged at both provincial and National level. We would like to thank Jim for all his help and cooperation during his time as treasurer and wish him well in his new role as central council delegate.
