West Boundary Senior Housing Society hosts AGM

Cathy Sanders takes over office of president from Vicki Feist.

West Boundary Senior Housing Society directors and members gathered in the facilities basement last Thursday for the group’s AGM. Former secretary Cathy Sanders was elected as the society’s new president.

The West Boundary Senior Housing Society held its annual general meeting last Thursday at Parkview Manor to elect board members for 2016.

Outgoing president Vicki Feist, who, along with husband Gerald, were prominent in establishing the society in 1998 and the ensuing construction of the Seniors’ residence was finally able to step down from her position and “finally take a break.”

The society is very keen to attract new members to keep the society energized and able to continue its important work of running a facility that is constantly filled to its capacity of 20 residents.

Parkview Manor’s kitchen continues to please residents, as manager Linda Boyl ensures meals are top quality and prepared with cost-effectiveness.

Elected to the board of directors for 2016 were: president, Cathy Sanders; vice-president, Jackie Reeves; treasurer, Jim Reeves; secretary, Cheryl Thompson (temporary).

Three-year directors are Viki Foster, Muriel Woolhether and Bill Watson.

Director at Large is Gerald Feist.

Chef extraordinaire is Linda Boyl.
