[New Westminster] QCB President PENNY McIVOR is pleased to announce details regarding the QCB AGM. The popular AGM will take place Wednesday, February 5th in the RIVER MARKET (Main Floor Food Court). Registration will begin at 6:15pm with the AGM commencing at 7:00pm. This year the MC will be QCB’s Past President, JAMES CROSTY.
One of the main reasons the QCB AGM is so well attended is the informative presentations that highlight the evening.

The CITY OF NEW WESTMINSTER staff will present and show the LARCO DEVELOPMENT proposal for the parking lots east of the Fraser River Discovery Centre on Quayside Drive.

Rounding up the guest speakers will be representatives from SENIOR SERVICES SOCIETY (Meals on Wheels) announcing a March fundraiser and the important work of the SSS board on this essential program in New Westminster.
SPECIAL RECOGNITION FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE
Following our guest presenters, the QCB will introduce items specifically associated with the QCB. QCB President Penny McIvor will give the traditional ‘Presidents Address: A Look At 2013’. The address will be followed by the recognition of two dedicated individuals for their community service to the Quay area. These are TED EDDY for his long time work as a QCB director and BRAIN ALLEN for his tireless work on the issue of rail noise and vibration. New this year, the QCB will recognize a local business for their long time support of the QCB and the Quay. RIVER MARKET will receive a certificate for their unwavering support of the community and of their support for the QCB efforts to build a greater sense of community such as the Boardwalk Festival & Sale and Light Up The Quay.
