President’s Note

At this AGM several important issues will be discussed including the upcoming Mother’s Day Race Events, the Learn to Run Program and future Club and Donation Funding. These events and programs are the financial mainstay of our “Charitable Society”. They provide the necessary funding for our Society’s yearly operations and Charity Donations. Discussion of our current financials will be an AGM Agenda item this year.

As well, our continued functioning as a Charitable Society requires a club Executive and many volunteers to see to the yearly operations. We need you and your involvement. Please don’t assume that someone else will do it!

Your voice is important to this Executive. We need and welcome your input and discussion of these and other topics for the upcoming ORCA year at our 2020 AGM.

Please plan to attend.

Paul D. Watson, President
