Viewpoint Winter 2018

Our winter 2018 edition of VIEWPOINT has arrived thanks to the efforts of our new Newsletter Editor, Marie Simpson. Thank you, Marie, for your diligence and behind-the-scenes hours to create and distribute this issue.

This issue includes: President’s Report; Georgian Bluffs Budget; Upcoming Events; Kemble Christmas Parade and a NEW INITIATIVE …

In order to involve more IVDAARA members in our organization we
have created three ad hoc committees. Each of these committees will recommend to the Board of Directors any actions that they think the Board of Directors should initiate and champion on behalf of our organization.

The three committees are:

  • Political Ad Hoc Committee
  • Environmental Ad Hoc Committee
  • Social Ad Hoc Committee
