Welcome from Connie Barlow, Executive Director
As the Executive Director of GCRS, I continue to be thankful that the enthusiasm and vision with which our Society began in 1984 has not only been maintained but continues to flourish. Our strong organizational structure, the stability of our leadership and the commitment of our talented staff has strengthened our collective dedication to our purpose.
Although our mission has remained constant over the years, the programs and services we provide have evolved as the needs of our community have changed. We have learned much about what needs to be done and how to do it.
We appreciate that municipal, provincial and federal government funding has provided the foundation for long term sustainability but we continually face the challenge of finding ways to raise additional funds in an unpredictable economy. We gratefully acknowledge the local organizations who offer granting opportunities that allow us to expand our boundaries and consider all that is possible.
The establishment and continual growth of our local non profit sector has fostered important, exciting and relevant collaborations with community partners who willingly share their time, resources and guidance. Together we make great things happen in our community.
We are proud of the work we do and are pleased to share it with you.
GCRS Executive Director
