The 2015-16 year has been a pivotal time for WTSS, yielding remarkable successes and exciting opportunities.
On Thursday September 15, we held our 31st Annual General Meeting at our office on 1709 Bloor St. W. 2nd. Fl. A special thank you to all Members, Volunteers, Staff and Special Guests that actively participated, including LA Centre for Active Living, Humber Community Seniors’ Services, Parkdale Golden Age Foundation, MP Arif Virani and MPP Cheri DiNovo. Our Executive Director, Thom, expertly led the meeting’s agenda complete with staff and volunteer recognition, plus a review of our financials. Updates were shared live on social media.
A quick note to recognize the newest members of our Board of Directors: Vincent Dor, Fatma Rajwani and Grace Jokinen. We’d also like to extend a big thank you to our departing board members, Brent Potts and Sarah Caldwell.
A selection of highlights:
