Our next monthly meeting is Wednesday, December 4 at 1:30 p.m. in the Gary Oaks Room at the Parksville Community Centre at 132 Jensen St. As a Christmas holiday initiative, we’re collecting goods for The Parksville Food Bank at the meeting. The Salvation Army will have someone come by to pick up all the goods collected.
Our guest speakers will be: Brian Collicott, Coordinator of the Technology Learning Centre in Parksville, and Nadine Durante, Branch Manager at the Parksville-Qualicum Beach & District BCSPCA.
With 20 years’ experience in the IT industry in both the private and public sectors, Brian finds helping others immensely rewarding and interesting.
Nadine has overseen our local BCSPCA’s general operations, including fundraising, more than 60 volunteers, and 8 staff for 15 years. Prior to joining BCSPCA in 2002, Nadine, as a Special Provincial Constable, was an authorized agent for the BCSPCA under the Police act, to conduct animal cruelty investigations.
