On Monday, April 24, 2017, we held our 109th Annual General Meeting.  It was a very well-attended event with 140 people this year and we wish to thank all those who joined us.  With Karen Romero, YMCA Youth Advisor (Youth Transitions Program), as Emcee, we learned first-hand of the struggles and triumphs of youth attending our programs.

In addition to the evening being our official AGM (view agenda), with an audience consisting of voting members, we also recognized volunteering excellence with the Bill Rees Volunteer Awards - a more somber yet powerful event with the passing of Bill Rees, our long-time outstanding volunteer and friend to many, in February 2017.  

Congratulations to all the recipients:
