Short Report on the VHES 21st Birthday/ AGM

Many thanks to all who attended our 21st Birthday Party/AGM today. Among those present were Sr Frieda of the Sisters of St Ann and Paul Redchurch of the Knights of Columbus.

Our Guest speaker was Rose Henry who updated us on justice issues she is involved in as part of Idle No More; Wendy Stewart and son Nathan entertained with songs about poverty and homelessness; and Steve and Chris from Charlie Pyott House testified to the importance of our Houses in their lives and the lives of others.

We elected a strong grassroots Board for the coming year, including Steve and Chris.
Thanks to those who donated to our Share-a-thon–we are approaching $7,500. now…a way to go–but we will get there by end of June..
