Oilfields Food Bank Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting will be held on March 31st on the lower level of the United Church in Turner Valley at 3pm. If you think you might want to join this dedicated group of people you may want to pop by. It’s only $5 per year to be a member. You can join and give a hand wherever it’s needed or jump right in and run for a position on the board. President Ida Wegelin and the Secretary/Treasurer Wendy Williams will not be running for their positions again. Both these ladies have been members of the food bank for many years and put in plenty of hours. Vice president Glen Chambers and Director Allan Burney are letting their names stand for re-election.
