After announcing a month ago that the Block Parent program would discontinue in Morinville if a new board did not step forward, the association has received an injection of new blood.
At a meeting held at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre Oct. 5, 13 residents came out to support the continuation of the organization locally. Past Chair Tanya Sloan said none of those in attendance were current members.
From the 13 in attendance, a new board was appointed.
Raina Hooper becomes the association’s new chair.
Vicky Moser will serve as Vice Chair. Jennifer Berry takes on the role of treasurer and Christa Sabel will be the group’s secretary.
In addition to the four taking office, another four of those in attendance have agreed to serve the board as members at large, expanding the board to eight.
The new board is encouraging anyone interested in becoming a Block Parent home to contact the Association for further information.
Applications can be sent out via email, fax or picked up in person (with arrangements).
The board is anticipating a short transition time as they take the necessary steps to become Block Parent homes.
The previous Board expressed their thanks to everyone who came out to the Oct. 5 meeting.
