Letter from the President
of the Board of Directors
Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your 2014 President. I will be working with an incredible Board of Directors and Advisory Committee devoted to achieving the goals of WCCR, implementing the strategic plan developed in 2013 and meeting the needs of members.
The 2014 focus for community service programs remains the Text Book Project and the Scholarship Program. All students receiving scholarships for post secondary studies are graduates of our high school scholarship program. This year WCCR will award scholarships to four grade 11 students enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program in a public high school. This is a pilot program for WCCR and if successful, a source of students for the future. Members will be kept informed at General Meetings and on a monthly basis through Connections. A continued focus will be improving and facilitating communications between members — please check our website (www.wccr.org) and Facebook for regular updates.
2015 marks WCCR’s 75th Anniversary — planning for this major event in our history is in the preliminary stages. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to volunteer to help or have any ideas on how the 75th should be celebrated.
We are planning numerous activities to be held during the coming months notably our Dancing in the Rain, March 29, 2014 major fundraising event, General Meetings, informal gatherings focused on friendship, and mini fundraisers. Your input is always welcome.
