AGM 2017

Last night was the Lifetime Networks Annual General Meeting.

Staff, Board Members, Participants, and Lifetime Networks supporters gathered together to celebrate all of the hard work that has been done over the past year, and review some of the exciting and ambitious goals in place for the year to come.

We were pleased to present Red Barn Market with the Community Supporter of the Year award. Red Barn has shown great commitment to inclusive hiring practices.

A participant from the Lifetime Networks Employment Program was hired at the Oak Bay location shortly after they opened a year ago. Owner Scott Travers immediately took this individual under his wing, taking a personal interest in his training and professional development. This has been a very successful placement and the individual is still happily employed as a member of the Red Barn Market team.

Each year, a deserving participant is selected to receive the Pieter Van Rheenen Scholarship Award. This scholarship can be used to purchase additional supports and services. This year, the staff team chose to present Eric De Loor with this award. Eric has been very dedicated to Lifetime Networks. He has been volunteering as a courier for the organization, as well as taking on a mentorship role with another young man with Autism through the Networks Program.

Eric will be using the scholarship to help him towards his dream of being a professional writer. Congratulations Eric!
