Doreen Glanfield has taken over as president of the Rimbey and District Drop In Centre.

Glanfield, who held the position a few years ago, was reinstated at the Drop In’s annual meeting held Feb. 11.

“I would like to thank everyone for their support and I’m looking forward to being back at the helm,” she said.

Anyone who has questions or concerns or simply wants more information about the Drop In Centre should contact Glanfield at her home.

“New ideas and new members are what it takes to make an organization great,” she said.

“Members felt that waiting much longer might lead to serious problems,” she said.

Other executive for the Drop In Centre is vice-president Grace McCrindle, treasurer Lucille Troutman and Bernice Birtsch.

New directors are Murray Ormberg, Norma Woods and Gladys DeGray.

Directors with one year left on their terms are Ken Holland, Pat Muddle and Bernie Wolkowski.

Also at the AGM it was decided to purchase a new metal roof for the centre to be installed this year.

“Members felt that waiting much longer might lead to serious problems,” Glanfield said.

The Drop In would not be successful without all the volunteers who pitch and help with the various activities, said Glanfield.

“It is important to recognize and thank the numerous people behind the scenes, running the card games each week, putting on bonspiels and tournaments and looking after the dances and floor curling and helping out in the kitchen,” she said.

She also thanked the outgoing executive, president Lorraine Jarl, vice-president Gladys Johnson and directors Vivian Mulligan, Monte Haslam and Brenda Mounteney.
