Nova Metis Heritage Association is deferring our 2020 AGM until sometime next year.
The Nova Métis Heritage Association Board of Directors has moved, and hereby gives Notice, to defer the 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) until sometime before November 1st, 2021, as empowered by the Registrar of Companies for BC Societies (1).
The response to CoViD-19 in 2020 has effected us in many ways, and this year has seen many challenges for Nova Métis. We considered the effort to host a digital / virtual / Online AGM, and found our time, effort, and resources would be insufficient at this time.
Nova Metis Heritage Association will be giving out multipurpose hand sanitizer and gloves to our community members.
We will be on-site at Surrey Sport & Leisure Complex parking lot (south side)
Next Date: on Tuesday, October 27, between 2:30 and 5:30pm (Session #8)
Look for our Nova Metis sign or blue Metis flag.
Please bring your own container or bottle(s) -- 500ml or 1L recommended -- and we will fill it for you with multipurpose hand sanitizer.
Special arrangements may be made depending on your situation, so please let us know. Special funding is also available, for those in need.
You will be asked to show Metis membership.
Thank You to all those that joined us at our finish-line picnic in celebrating our Nova Metis walking group's completion of the 10K walking program. Walk was great, amongst the refreshing trees of Green Timbers park, and the food was well met and devoured ;). A special thank you to all our volunteers and to our walk leader and event coordinator Kerry Marion. The T-shirts were superb and a nice reward.
We are hoping and planning to do this again next year, so keep in touch to join our walking group in January of 2017 to work your way to a 10 kilometre walk, you will enjoy the challenge.
