The Annual General Meeting of CB55+ Association was held on Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at CB Place.
An appreciation cake for our many volunteers was served at coffee time.
Appropriate to the occasion of an AGM, the meeting started with a photographic presentation titled “CB55 Plus – Memories of the Year 2010”, which was a graphic summary of the many events that had taken place throughout the year and the accomplishments of our hard working members.
The President’s address outlined the Mission and Vision Statements, reviewed the Shared Values for the group and thanked the departing board members. Then there were the reports of the Standing Committees (Programs, Services, Governance) and that of the Treasurer.
As there were no nominations from the floor the slate of directors was acclaimed.
Our new President, Rich McMorran, gave the closing comments. His goal is, “To see as many happy faces as possible come through the doors at CB 55+”.

Fab Five We are very proud of our founders who received a certificate of recognition from the Beacon Community Services and Peninsula News. They are Inez Cole, who first visuallized the concept, Gwen MacPherson, Daphne Chazottes, Jack Willoughby and Rich McMorran. They are affectionatley known to us as the Fab Five. It was their foresight, inspiration and hard work starting in 1999 that made our CB 55+ Association what it is today. Thank you Fab Five! In our eyes you deserve Olympic gold.
