Wood Islands Welcome Centre is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We have been working hard the last two years with a very small Board of only three dedicated volunteers, who have been with us for a very long time. Many thanks to John Rousseau, Dorothy Oulton and Gwen Davies for their continuing efforts and time, and doing such a great job of holding down the fort.
So it is with extreme excitement that we welcome a host of new Board members to help us keep Wood Islands the place to come relax, play and enjoy those lazy summer days that seem to pass by us so quickly.
Welcome new members!
Harvey Sawler – a long history of working with the tourism industry
Daniel Emery – an engineer who lives in Wood Islands and son of Stuart Emery, a past Board member.
Kyle Cook – a Wood Islands resident whose father Jim Cook, was also a past Board member
River Waterman – working with BAWG (Belfast Area Watershed Group) for the summer and one of our youngest members
Jasmine Katz – is really devoted to Environmental Sciences. She loves the woods and will be one of those who works hard to take care of the planet.
We are excited to have an influx of new perspectives and new ideas to help us improve the Wood Islands experience. The donation of their time and energy to our community will ensure our success in that endeavour.
To that end, we are working on a revitalization plan and taking first steps towards rebranding. In the months to come you may notice some new signage and banners as we move forward. Stay tuned for future posts on our plans as we progress.
