It is with mixed feelings that we announce that Shyla Guy, Resource Assistant in Church House is planning a move to the east coast of Canada. While this is a wonderful opportunity for Shyla and her son, Liam, her sense of humour, adaptability and contribution to our team will be sorely missed!
Shyla’s last day in office will be October 15, 2021. Please join me in wishing her well on her grand adventure.
