2022 Annual General Meeting Follow up
Zoom Recording of 2022 AGM
Dogs helping with killer whale research ~ BBC
Our 2022 AGM went swimmingly. You can view the Zoom recording of the meeting via the YouTube video on this page. The video includes Dr. Deborah Giles presentation on her Southern Resident Killer Whale Research. We have also included the BBC video which highlights her work with resuce dogs to do her research. It is amazing what these dogs can do! If you are inspired to donate, we have included a link at the bottom of this section.
At the begining of the meeting we held the draw for our 50/50 raffle. At 7 pm on June 12th, ticket number 110306 belonging to Samantha White was selected by Comox Valley Project Watershed Society as the the winning ticket. The total jackpot was $1840, resulting in a prize of $920. The raffle was held under BC Gaming Event Licence #133014.
The other draw we had on the books was our Volunteer Appreciation Draw for work done between April 4th and June 10th. 66 volunteers were in the draw and we want to thank all of them for their time and energy Keeping It Living in the Comox Valley this spring. The winners of the $25 Peninsula COOP gift cards were Darrell, John and MariAnn.
Another highlight of the meeting was the election of board members. All the Directors who were part of the board prior to the meeting were re-elected and Tim Ennis was added to the roster. For the complete list visit our Board of Directors page.
With the 2022 AGM completed, Project Watershed is looking forward to the projects and activities of 2022/2023.
