The CHES AGM was held Sat., Sept. 8th, 2018, at 2 p.m. in the New Westminster Centennial Community Centre. The meeting was well attended.

Lorrie Williams opened the meeting and welcomed those attending. Sadly missing from this year’s meeting was Louise Paulsen, our most dedicated board member/treasurer for many years. Her passing this spring has been felt by many. She is and will be missed by many CHES sponsors, donors, and the Board.

Lorrie introduced our special guest from Africa, Naomi Saulo, CHES Treasurer in Tanzania.

The Executive Reports were printed for those to read and ask any questions.

Our 2018-2019 Board of Directors elected is: Nadia Anderson, Orrie Babiuk, Beverly Ford, Catriona Harker, Chris Harker, Karen Kilbride, Nancy Mann, Rowena Mukirazi, Joy Ruffeski, Ross Thomas, and Lorrie Williams.

An interesting, informative PowerPoint by Catriona Harker showed the work and success of CHES in Kenya and Tanzania.

A social hour followed the meeting, giving those in attendance an opportunity to mix and mingle.
