RRFDC has Annual Meeting in Emo...

Geoff Gillon speaks to the membership about the
previous and upcoming activities of the RRFDC.

On Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 7 pm, the RRFDC held its Annual General Meeting at the Emo Legion.  Approximately 25 people attended this meeting, and Chairman George Emes welcomed everyone to the meeting and introduced the current Board of Directors, Committee Members, Staff and FedNor representative.

Pam Bryson, Community Economic Development Office for FedNor then said a few words about the RRFDC and all the hard work that they had achieved over the past few years.

George also gave special thanks to Freeda Carmody and Tara Rajala, who will not be returning this year, to the Board.  A gift of appreciation were given to both for their years of service with the Board.

Jeff Busniuk of Viherjoki, Busniuk and Kelly, the corporation’s auditor, presented a brief review of RRFDC’s Audited Financial Statements to the membership.

A report of the Nominating Committee was given, with seven names being brought forward as candidates for three, 3-year terms on the Board of Directors.  Of those seven names, the membership elected the following candidates: Jim Belluz, Deb Cornell, and George Emes.

The business part of the meeting was then followed by an “Overview of Activities” presentation by Geoff Gillon, the corporation’s Economic Developer.

The RRFDC wishes to thank all those who attended this year’s meeting.
