Winnipeg Association of the Deaf (WAD) Special Meeting - April 1, 2014

Winnipeg Division of Manitoba Deaf Association
Winnipeg Association of the Deaf (WAD)



6:30 p.m.
 at DCM-285 Pembina Hwy. Affleck/Fiola Rooms

It will be very important for MDA members to show up at this special meeting. Last March 6th, 2014 we were unable to find people to serve on the WAD Board.  We need four people who are willing to be on the Board for the 2014 – 2015 year.

The people on the Board now for the 2013-2014 year have all decided, at the March 6th meeting that they would NOT continue for the 2014 – 2015 year.  If we do not have anyone interested to serve on the WAD board for one year, then we will be forced to shut down and we will pass on everything to MDA to take care of.

What has WAD done in the past?? Recreation and Programs for MDA members. For example, in the past, we have had various recreational events such as Fun Game nights, Bingos, as well as Tally Ho, Sleigh Ride, Christmas Children’s party and Christmas Dinner and Draw.

WAD has $50,000 locked in GICs and we use the interest from the GICs for WAD programs. We also receive $1,575 from Affleck Bequest. We contribute $1,200 towards rental of the MDA office. WAD gives a grant of $500 to Manitoba Deaf Seniors Club.
Come out to the meeting and show your support to continue with WAD.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting.

2013 – 2014 Representatives:
