March 21, 2022: Appointments to the Cruisers' Board of Directors


Hello Cruisers Family!


Please join us in welcoming Sherene MacDonald and Dwayne Richards to the positions of Director at Large and Treasurer.


Sherene has been an active volunteer with Cruisers for the past two years and plays an important role on our Social Media committee. We are very excited to have her accept the role of Director at Large and take on a more structured role within the club.

Dwayne was recommended to us by one of our athletes and is a great fit for the position of Treasurer. He is a Financial Security Advisor, CPA, and CMA that works with small to medium sized companies and entrepreneurs. He has past experience as a treasurer with a non-profit, he has been a hockey ref, and he is a golf enthusiast.


Welcome Sherene and Dwayne!


Thank you,

Kelly Calovini
President
