Many provided help with Conversation Café

On behalf of the Summerland Café Planning Committee I would like to thank all of the participants that attended the Conversation Café.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Summerland Café Planning Committee I would like to thank all of the participants that attended the Conversation Café on Oct. 22 at the IOOF Hall.

More than 70 people gathered together to engage in a lively discussion on the characteristics and qualities of good governance.

Special thanks go to our keynote speaker, Kelly Marshall, CEO of the Summerland Credit Union, who set the tone for the evening with his talk on the importance of effective governance models.

The event would not have been so successful without the table hosts who facilitated the discussion and the kitchen crew who kept the coffee and tea flowing.

As one participant stated, “In today’s digital age, these face-to-face discussions are so important to the health and well-being of our community.”
