On April 23, 2023 our Club hosted its first in-person AGM in three years at the Kortright Centre. It was a wonderful opportunity to gather and share lunch, to celebrate Club achievements and honour outstanding volunteers, and to listen to guest speaker Dr. Justina Ray. And of course, many Club members also enjoyed the morning hikes that were on offer.
This year’s Todd Bardes award, given annually to an outstanding volunteer who has made significant contributions to the Club in the previous two years, went to Margaret Corner, the Club’s Treasurer.
The Nina Carlisle Award, given to a longstanding volunteer (at least five years) was awarded to John Cunningham (pictured here with David Royle). Among other contributions, John has been mapping the trails throughout the Bruce Trail on his GPS and has been helpful in the development of each new trail guide.
Ian Grindall was awarded the Trail Maintenance Volunteer-of-the-Year Award for his work in clearing downed trees and tending his section of trail as Trail Captain.
Thanks to the AGM team led by Juliet Williams, Special Events Coordinator, for making our 2023 AGM a great success.
