Presidents Letter - Fall 2017
P.O. Box 65, Pender Island, BC V0N 2M0
Hello MLPOS members,
I hope you all are having a safe and fun summer here on this fantastic island we call home.
On behalf of your Board of Directors, Mike Wiley Director of Recreation/Tennis, Jean Deshenes Treasurer, Dave Reed Member at Large, Jeremy Harwood Vice-President, Kathy Gilbert Secretary and the Marina Team; Wally Foster General Manager, Ian Syme Operations Manager, Glen Henderson Projects Manager, Art Curtis Maintenance Manager, I encourage you all to attend our Annual General Meeting on September 9th at 2pm at the Anglican Church Hall on Canal Rd.
You might meet some old friends and neighbours you haven't seen for a while and, hey, it's only a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon. And we would like you to hear our plans for the coming year too. Remember, this is your society and we would love to get your input and ideas. We are not just about boating and tennis, we also play an advocacy role for our members.
Due to the dock reconfiguration undertaken a couple of years ago by our fabulous marina volunteers (under the supervision of Glenn Henderson, Marina Projects Manager extraordinaire), we now have a much shorter wait list. Anyone waiting for a spot in the marina will really benefit from this.
The positions up for election this year are President, Vice-President, Director of Recreation/Tennis, Marina General Manager, Marina Projects Manager. These are all for a two-year term. Plus Marina Operations Manager and Marina Maintenance Manager each for a one-year term. if you are interested in any of these, please let us know.
Thanks to Joanna Rogers, our Office Manager, for helping us to stay on track and, finally, thanks to the board members for all their hard work this past year and their volunteer spirit which makes this such a great organization and helps make Pender Island such a wonderful place to live and call home.
Hope to see you all at the AGM.
Peter Morton, President
