Dear Conklin Community
As we head into the holidays, we wanted to express our sincerest best wishes to everyone for a Merry Christmas, restful holidays and an early Happy New Year.
What a year it has been. It looks like we’ve turned the corner on COVID, however the flu has been raging. Please do not underestimate this flu. If you have symptoms, try to isolate and take care of yourselves.
While COVID slowed things down, our community still made great progress this year. Especially on the housing front. After years of work with donors, builders and the RMWB, we have finally locked in funding and approval to proceed with building some units. You can find a full update on our website, but we owe a debt of gratitude to all the people who worked hard to make this happen.
With TELUS, we were pleased to announce the full build-out of high-speed internet services to Conklin. Finally, we will be connected to the worlds of learning, communication and business. We thank Telus for their investment in our community.
There is news on the leadership front. Our CEO, Jeffrey O’Donnell has led many of our initiatives over many years. However, Jeffrey has decided to pursue other goals, and we wish him all the best. We will start the search for a new Executive Director early next year.
We have a very busy 2023 planned and will keep you all updated regularly through our newsletter and videos.
