Coady Class to St. Andrews

Participants of Coady’s Diploma in Development Leadership (Class of 2018) came for a visit to St. Andrews on July 13th. Seven community members came out to meet and speak with participants who wanted to know how things were done historically in our community and how they happen these days. Participants were impressed with our community centre’s cornerstone which reads “Community Spirit”. And they enjoyed learning what our 14 organizations do and how they work.

Afterwards, they were given a tour of the Highlander Curling Club and SASHA (Senior’s Housing). Sharing some photos here, but there are more to come.

Thank you Joe, Marie, Minnie, Fraser, Gerard, Bria, Brianna, Gord and Kerri-Lynn!
