At its annual meeting Tuesday, the Riverside Foundation for Health Care welcomed John McTaggart and Rod McLeod to the board.
McTaggart is a local businessman who also served as chair of the “Care Close to Home” fundraising campaign. McLeod is a local lawyer and supporter of the Foundation.
“We are very pleased that both John and Rod have joined the board,” noted Foundation director Teresa Hazel. “They both bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and will be great additions to our board of directors.”
Larry Cousineau and Audrey Anderson both agreed to serve a second term with the board and were re-appointed to three-year terms.
Recognition of members leaving the board was extended to Clare Brunetta and Jim Krag, who were instrumental in the establishment of the Foundation and the success of the recent “Care Close to Home” campaign.
“They have been great ambassadors for the Foundation and its mission, and we will miss their involvement on the board,” said Hazel.
Krag will continue to assist the Foundation as a volunteer while Brunetta will continue to serve as a member of the recently-established Planned Giving committee.
Tammy Kellar was appointed chair of the board. A retirement and investment planner with the Royal Bank here, she served as vice-chair last year.
Wendy Judson of Emo has been appointed vice-chair.
Brigitta McGreevy replaces Craig Sanders as the representative from Riverside Health Care Facilities Inc.’s board of directors. She is from Rainy River and also was a volunteer for the “Care Close to Home” campaign.
Appreciation was extended to Sanders for his involvement and support of the Foundation.
Other board members include Joan Allison, Steve Chown, Irene Meades, and Wayne Woods, and Hazel.
