COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS COMMITTEE 2017
Community Connections Committee 2017
It’s been another busy year for the Community Connections Committee with plenty of work for our small group and the many member-volunteers and Glen staff who all worked so hard to make this year a success.
As committee chair, I would like to thank the members of our team for the many hours that they volunteered planning, preparing and implementing these very popular and positive community events. Thanks also to the many hard-working volunteers who shopped, prepped and cooked, poured beer and wine, served appetizers, ice-cream or popcorn, counted cash, sold tickets, carried trays, set up chairs, tables and tents, gathered bouquets of flowers and generally just worked hard for the fun of it; we simply couldn’t have done it without you! And many thanks to our own Glen staff for the valuable work they do behind the scenes to ensure everything is in place and that we are as ready as we can be on “game day”.
Let’s not forget you, our fellow Glen members. Thanks for taking the time to support these events with your attendance and your money, bringing us closer together through your participation. And a big shout out to our Community partners. As our committee name suggests, our success is wholly dependent on the connections we make to the community outside our gates. Again, this year we are so grateful to the generous businesses, food-vendors, musicians, wine merchants, the hobby brewers and ice-cream makers whose determined efforts made our events so successful.
