December 2, 2010: Newswest AGM Report.

Newswest AGM Report.

On November 22, Newswest  held its Annual General  Meeting at the Churchill  Senior’s Centre. Newswest is  one of the longest surviving  community newspapers in  Ottawa, founded in 1978. It  is a volunteer organization  with a ten member board of  directors.
For the first time we have  11 members on the board – a  motion was made to increase  the number of board members  to accept all nominated and  willing to stand. The directors  for 2010-2011 are: Jeff  Leiper, Gary Ludington,  Wayne Rodney, Monica  Freedman, Cheryl Parrott,  Paulette Dozois, Pat O’Brien,  Jude Haynes and Natalie  Hanson, Lorrie Marlow and  Nick Xenos with editor Anne  Duggan ex-officio.
The highlights over the  past year include: the continuing  great work on the  Newswest website to make it  informative, current and fun;  and the new youth writing  contest this year. We have had  a lot of fun continuing the  contests about some of the  history of the area. The success  of the Hintonburg Kids  Fun Run continues to grow  and we are a proud sponsor of  this event as part of the  Hintonburg Centennial Run.
Newswest continues to provide  a forum for organizations,  the community and for elected  representatives to get their  messages out about local events  and issues.
