Thank you to all who attended our AGM. It is always nice for residents to meet each other and our elected representatives. We welcomed Nuk Korako MP, the Community Board members who were able to attend: Karolin Potter, Helene Mautner, Lee Sampson, Phil Clearwater. Apologies were received from Ruth Dyson, MP.

Our Guest speaker was Mark Wilson, Principal of Cashmere High School. Ho reviewed the developemnts at Cashmere HS, with the replacement of older buildings and the development of the HS campus to meet the needs of the future. As an example, the performing arts facilities will be improved and enlarged to accomodate increased numbers of students. The Gym facilities are top knotch and older classrooms are being replaced. We found Mark’s presentation very interesting and enjooyed being able to peruse the plans.
