Members of the Donnelly Recreation Society held their annual general meeting at the municipal office on Nov. 22.
Among other things, President Pauline Therriault highlighted the Family Day event that took place at the Park Regalo in February.
She said the weather was quite cool, but they still had a decent turnout for tobogganing and skating. Hot dogs and hot chocolate were served, and wagon rides were provided around the community.
The board tried to do some recruiting over the past year.
“We polled the community using Facebook to see what everyone would be interested in, for upgrades to the park,” says Therriault.
“There seems to be some decent interest in a pumptrack system.”
The Community Facility Enhancement Program grant has been prepared with that in mind, she says, adding the application will be sent out to meet the Dec. 15 deadline.
Therriault’s report was approved and entered into the record. The board also approved the minutes for the AGM held on Nov. 23, 2015.
Next, Rita Therriault read the treasurer/auditor report, which was also approved.
The board election was one of the last items dealt with. The executive for 2017 consists of:
. President Pauline Therriault.
. Vice-president Heather Servant.
. Secretary Lise Poirier.
Rita Therriault was appointed to the position of treasurer/auditor.
The directors consist of Cindy Chapados, Wendy Garant and Jeanine Labrecque.
The society is looking for more board members. For more information, please contact Pauline Therriault at (780) 837-1717.
