New members of board acclaimed

Congratulations to the new board of directors members, Jackie Scheffel and Art Stewart, acclaimed at the AGM of October 28. 

Our thanks to the two board members who stepped down: Dave Chaplin as Vice Chair, particularly for his work behind the scenes relating to the logistics at Woodroffe United Church; and Steve Snell as inaugural Chair, for so ably steering the new board of directors in the organization’s first year as a not-for-profit corporation.

Thanks also to the board members who are continuing on for another year.

We appreciate the hard work of board members, and the time and energy they put into keeping ONHB going, and growing, and a musically satisfying place to be.
