The Cridge Centre for the Family, like all non-profits and charities in Canada, is truly owned and answers to a committed volunteer body, the society members. In the case of The Cridge Centre, society members provide support in many ways, including expert advice, volunteer activities, and prayerful support. High on the list of member benefits, and one of the ways we annually try to thank these committed guides is with the Society Member's Breakfast.
Planning start early in the year to ensure that as many board members and management staff are on hand to thank as many society members as possible. It would be impossible to over-state how important our society members are to the ongoing growth and service of The Cridge Centre. The breakfast is an opportunity to connect, to inform and always to thank.
The morning of, Chef Nik and his team roll out of bed early to prepare a delicious breakfast – this year the choices were between a tasty spanich omelette and a healthy fruit and yogourt parfait. An opening grace, an opening welcome, conversation over the meal, and a special presentation about one of the programs is always part of the morning. This year, Nicole Andrews of The Cridge Young Parent Outreach Program shared the microphone with both a current and a past client to give a sense of the difference that program is making for young moms in the community.
The members of the society are the spine in the body of The Cridge Centre. Christians interested in finding out more about this opportunity to contribute to The Cridge Centre should contact Pat Bailey by phone at (250) 995-6410 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
