The South Similkameen Arts Society (SSASy) held its first Annual General Meeting on May 29, and a new board was elected.

We are happy to announce that this year’s President is Traci Russell (our former vice president).  Former SSASy President, Amber Herbison, is now our vice president, and Amanda Elyzen (former publicity director) has taken on the role of secretary.  The SSASy board welcomes two new members, Emmy Woroby (treasurer) and Debbie Bertrand (director at large).  The new board is very excited about the future of SSASy, and is looking forward to promoting arts education, creativity and fun!

The board also acknowledged the hard work of Lee Simmons (former director at large) and Julie Hinton (former secretary/treasurer), whose hard work and enthusiasm was essential to getting the society off the ground.

 

Memberships are available to anyone interested in the arts for $20 per year.  We have replaced our old blog with a new website!  Please visit us at http://www.southsimilkameenartssociety.ca for more information.
