With the AGM fast approaching, we are encouraging all our members to attend. The Irish Centre is a very active society and requires dedicated and motivated members for it to be successful.
The Executive is reaching out to the 2018 membership to consider putting their name forward to fill one of the many volunteer Executive positions available. It takes much effort and teamwork to keep the Irish Centre going. An Executive that is dedicated, works as a team and have the interest of the membership, will ensure a strong ISSS and community.
Please feel free to contact any current Executive member regarding a position. You can also contact one of the Trustees to put your name forward for a position.
Refreshments and nibbles will be served following the meeting.
Every two years we work a casino fundraiser which helps keep the doors of the Irish Centre open – keeping Irish culture alive in Edmonton. The funds raised go to sports, dance, music, building renovations/maintenance, and so much more.
This year we will be working at the Yellowhead Casino located at 153 Street & Yellowhead Trail.
19 Volunteers (age 18+) each day are needed to work all positions (count room, runners, cashiers, etc.) No experience required; training will be provided, and all time shifts (morning, afternoon, evening and night) over the 2 days are open.
Our aim is to get all the positions filled as soon as possible. Sign UP! at the following link or call Rory at 780-720-3010.
