Summerland youth centre seeks board members

Annual General Meeting will be held Feb. 12 at the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre

The Summerland Youth Centre Association’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. in the conference room at the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre.

The centre is the meeting place of Scouts, Guides, Cadets, and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club. Several adult groups also use the facility.

The centre celebrating 25 years of serving the community of Summerland. It is a volunteer run organization. Those volunteers have served for many years and for the first time since 2008, the board is looking for new members.

Julie Sardinha has served a secretary for close to 20 years and has decided to retire from both farming and the Youth Centre board in order to relax.

Dale MacDonald served as the representative of the District of Summerland since 1994 and recently as vice-president.

Historically the board has met at most three times a year. Besides the two board positions, help with fundraising, garden upkeep and routine maintenance is welcome.

Anyone interested in helping is urged to attend the meeting on Feb. 12 or contact John Dorn at I 250-404-0318 or by email at john@dorn.ca.
