SOFAAR held its Annual General Meeting and Stash Day this past Saturday, March 9th, 2019. The sun shone for us and some 35 members gathered for a fibre afternoon. The business meeting was followed by much browsing and selecting of ‘new-to-you’ stash, an exciting Show and Tell and lively conversation.
One of the key elements of the business portion was the election of directors. Some directors are returning: Rachael Cheechoo, Donna Godfrey-Conyers, Sharon Moody and Céleste Thibodeau-Stacey. Others have served on the SOFAAR board in previous years: Cheryl den Hartog and Cathy Malon. Yet others have agreed to serve for the first time: Rosaire MacNeil, Annette Parker-Smith, Tammy Sanford-Hutchinson and Betty Wade. The new board met briefly after the AGM portion of the day and elected directors to serve the members of SOFAAR in the following roles:
President – Cheryl den Hartog
Vice-President – Céleste Thibodeau-Stacey
Treasurer – Rachael Cheechoo
Secretary – Cathy Malon
We look forward to a vibrant year of fibre events – casual gatherings, exhibitions and learning events. We hope to serve you well. If you have any ideas for future, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
