President’s Message


January 2022


We truly hope everyone had a lovely, enjoyable, and safe holiday season. Whether you are celebrating near or far with your family and/or friends or on some exotic vacation. It was possibly very different from last year. I hope going forward we can all start to participate in a more “normal” events. Although without a doubt the world has changed, and we may in for a slightly new “normal”.

If you made a New Year resolution(s) hopefully you are on track, but I’ll check back with you in February 2022! (Just kidding)

Winter for me is a great time of year. (Don’t hate me). I have always enjoyed the change of seasons. Therefore, winter is a time for great bundled up hikes and walks, the cozy warmth of a fire and on occasion some outdoor skating, and very rarely some skiing.

I also hope everyone can get out and continue to enjoy your local restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues. Although I can’t wait to travel someplace old or new and exciting.

The past year has truly made me appreciate the great places to visit in our great province. We are very fortunate to have lovely places to explore. Whether it’s a day trip, a long weekend, or a well-deserved vacation. I wish you all the best for the upcoming year. Just a reminder heading into 2022, so mark your calendars.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
