Another successful AGM is in the books! We had a great turn out last night at the Stockey Centre where we celebrated our 2018 year. We elected three new directors to our board, Meredith Fleming as Training Director, Rebecca Gallagher as CFO and Ross Emmans as Operations Director. We awarded the Hazel and Vic Carpenter Award for Sailing Excellence to Quinn Cooke and Callum Cooke for their superb representation of SPS in their youth racing regattas. We were also honoured to have Marianne King-Wilson present the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers from the Governor General of Canada to one of our Founding Members, John Stothers. The medal recognizes the exceptional volunteer achievements of Canadians from across the country in a wide range of fields and pays tribute to the dedication and commitment of volunteers. We then honoured all of our volunteers in 2018 with a small token of appreciation before breaking for some social time and a viewing of episode two of Northern Rescue which introduced SPS as Turtle Island Bay!
Thank you to everyone for attending last night, it was a great get together and now the summer can begin!
