Health Centre Society in need of Directors
Congratulations Allan Hanson!
One of our Board members, Allan Hanson, participated in the Great Cycle Challenge Canada - Riding to Fight Kids' Cancer, in support of the SickKids Foundation. Allan surpassed his fundraising and distance goals! Here is the link to his story.
The Health Centre AGM will be held in May. We are in need of some new Directors to continue the work of providing primary health care in our area. If you are interested in this field, and can spare some time, that would be great! We meet once a month, but not during the summer. Here is a link to the Board of Directors page.
