Our Annual Election, held this past November at Mimico Cruising Club, drew a number of the usual attendees and a few new faces as well. I can’t say for certain whether the crowd was drawn together for the announcement of the 2013 Board of Directors or whether it was our fine speaker, Constable Hugh Smith. Regardless, this was a wonderful event with great friends, old and new. During dinner, elections remained open until 7:00p.m. at which time our Election Scrutineer, Ken Jensen withdrew from the meeting to finish counting the votes. Constable Hugh Smith swiftly took to the microphone and did what he does best: educate us on traffic laws. Unfortunately, we were unable to attend to all members’ questions, however, Constable Smith was kind enough to stay until the bitter end to answer everyone’s questions individually. If you missed him this time around, do not fret, as he is booked for our 2013 social season.
Finally, the moment everyone had been waiting for: Ken resurfaced with the new 2013 Elected Board confirmed and proceeded to make his announcement. A congratulation to all nominees, as it is an honor unto itself to be nominated to represent our club. The winners are, President: Walter Murray, Vice President: Arthur Quinlan, Treasurer: Robert Moniz, Secretary: Sheri Whitlock, Director of Communications: Kye Wankum, Directors: Del Bruce, Michael Bryan, David Forbes, Horst Petermann, and yours truly, Isabel Starck. We thank you for your vote and look forward to meeting you at our upcoming events.
