There's celebration in the air with winter weather - Published Tuesday November 23rd, 2010

On a more serious note, it's always good to hear from our contributors and Cecile Cassista, Executive Director of the Coalition for Seniors' and Nursing Home Residents' Rights, had some news regarding the organization having just elected a new slate of officers at its Annual General Meeting on Friday, Nov. 12.

She informs us that Kevin Symes, executive director for the licensed practical nurses, will now lead the Coalition as president; Louise Gilbert, vice-chair of the Mayor's Advisory Council for Moncton becomes vice-president; Pat Goobie, from the Federal Superannuates, is now the treasurer; and Debbie Ellison, from the New Brunswick Society of Retired Teachers is the secretary.

The outgoing president is Hector J. Cormier from Moncton who has presided over the board for the last two years.
