May was an eventful month for our chapter. Early in the month, we built hampers at our volunteer day atthe Edmonton Food Bank for the people in need in our community. On May 22nd, we hosted our monthly social at MKT, where we had the opportunity to catch up with our members and connect with those interested to learn about JCI.
On May 24th, we attended the BC/Yukon Western Regionals in Cranbrook, which was a weekend packed with back to back personal growth and development sessions, debate training and Effective Speaking competition. We also had the opportunity to hear from Tristen Chernove who has represented Canada in many occasions in paddle sport and cycling, including the 2016 Paralympics in Rio. The conference concluded with the circus-themed gala and awards presentation. A special thanks to Devon and Nicole, from JCI Kootenay for organizing and hosting this year’s regionals.
Congratulations to our winners and awardees for proudly representing our chapter and region!
