CORNWALL – The announcement of the inaugural Founders Award winner for volunteer of the year will be one of the highlights at the annual general meeting of the Cornwall Curling Club.
The AGM takes place Thursday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m. inside the club at the Cornwall Civic Centre. All members are welcome.
The Founders Award was created this spring by the board of directors as part of the club’s 40th anniversary celebrations. It recognizes the work of the original founding volunteers who formed the curling club over 40 years ago, and their many years of volunteer service to make the club a success.
Volunteers continue to be the driving force behind the success of the club, said president Shauna McGill. This award recognizes both the founders and the importance of volunteers to the success of the club, she added.
The Founders Award will be presented yearly to a dedicated volunteer member of the CCC who will receive a certificate and plaque.
Also on the AGM agenda will be the election of new board members. There are 10 current members with two vacancies. Three members are completing their three-year term, potentially leaving five openings on the board.
Annual reports from the president, club manager, chairs of committees and a financial statement will be presented, plus an update on the rock replacement program. There will also be the opportunity for questions from members.
“We’re hoping for a good turnout of members. The club is coming off a very successful season,” said McGill.
