2016 National AGM

The 2016 National AGM is over. The last month leading up to the AGM saw everybody scrambling to try and make this one of the best AGMs ever.

The 2016 AGM was hosted by PMD through the volunteer efforts of many of the lower mainland squadrons. None more so than Fraser Squadron. Volunteers for the 2016 National AGM included Dave Mellis, Meredith Williamson, Barb & John Dymond, Byron and Donalda Buie, Kathleen & Paul Vanderwood, and Bob Everson. Wait! Those were just the people in the photo below taken Friday night. Missing from the photo are Peter Lefroy, Cleve Pryde, Vidas Vitkus, Gouri Chinappa, Bill & Linda Hawryluk. I recall seeing Jack Tang and several other Fraser members whose names I don't know at the AGM luncheon. If you spent time volunteering I really hope I haven't forgotten you.

After the business of electing and swearing in the new bridge was completed, there was a short break followed by merit awards. As a not for profit organization the only means we have of rewarding members for time served is the merit award. With a gamut of merits ranging from one to thirty-nine Fraser continues to show a dedication to teaching safe boating.
Following the merit awards there were a number of special awards as well as our annual trophies.
The John Murray Award was presented to Jack Tang.

The Brimble and Curran Memorial Award was presented to Rick Easthom.

The Stuart Church Award was presented to Bob Juulsen.

The MAREP Award was presented to Colin Redwood.

Chief Commander Joe Gatfield issued two commendations to Fraser Squadron. The recipient of the Letter of Commendation was Robert Meggy. A Letter of Appreciation was awarded to Jim Bryant.

After the awards presentations it was time for our guest speaker. This year Jeff Engholm of Marine Service Network and Delta Search & Rescue was on hand to give us a rundown on the operation and services of the Royal Canadian Search & Rescue (Station 8 - Delta).

2012 AGM

The Fraser Squadron AGM was held at the Sundance Ballroom on April 20, 2012.

 

2013 PMD AGM

2013PMDAGM-sFraser Squadron received several awards at the Pacific Mainland District AGM for their Chinese Boating Basics Manual and for having the largest % increase in membership by a Squadron in the PMD district.

This would not have been posible if it had not been for Commander Rick's initiative in recognizing that there was a opportunity to work with Jack and the Asian community to develop courses in Chinese. Also Rick's ideas were supported by our bridge and especially our training officers Paul & Kathleen and Bob E. who worked with Jack on our website so that it is now in Chinese/English (I think that we probably are the only Squadron that has it in both these languages in Canada/USA)! These folks put 100's of hours into this project!

With the other awards that Rick and Jack have received it certainly has been a banner year for Fraser Squadron. More to come!

Congratulation are in order as Fraser Squadron along with Port Moody cleaned up on the awards this year!
