The Williams Lake Seniors’ Activity Centre has a new president.

At the annual general meeting on Monday, Feb. 15 Bob Macnair was voted in as the new president.

The other executive members are Shelly Shobridge, vice-president; Cory Paterson treasurer; and Joanne Wright, secretary. The directors are Ed Novakowski, Ed Kozuki and Lynn Hanson.

Lulu Forseille has one more year and Pat Cassidy is the Old Age Pensioners’ Organization (OAPO) representative by appointment.

A heartfelt thank you to the executive and directors for giving their time and effort to run the Seniors’ Centre.

Let’s not forget the past president, Pat Cullum, for stepping in and taking over at a crucial time when he had to step down mid-term and Pam Abrahamse took over as acting president. A job well done. Thank you to both of you.
