AGM 2012

This 2012 Annual General Meeting was held on Monday, April 16th at Cube Gallery.
The evening began with an hour of socializing over food and refreshments provided by DeRienzio’s and Bridgehead. Board members and volunteers contributed sweets, and everyone enjoyed reconnecting.
Our guest speaker for the meeting was Mayor Jim Watson, and he spoke about city council’s efforts to address the problem of homelessness in Ottawa. In his speech, Mayor Watson shared that he is working with the council to allocate the $14million in funds that have been dedicated to increasing the number of affordable housing units for families in Ottawa. Kitchissippi councillor, Katherine Hobbs, was also in attendance representing council’s support for the "houses of hope".
Gerard Meagher received the ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award for his dedicated work on our database. An award well-deserved. Chelsea Clogg, Debbie Davis and Diane O’Neill were introduced as the three new members to join the Board.
It was great to see numerous Daybreak residents in attendance. We thank YOW Productions for donating their services to create a new video for us, which was shown at the AGM, featuring Michael, William and Melanie.
Our 2012 AGM was a wonderful success and we thank Cube Gallery for generously donating the venue.
Celebrating 30 years of rebuilding lives, inspiring hope.
