Letter to the editor

Invermere Companion Animal Network Society (ICAN) held its annual general meeting Sunday, March 17. 

Reports from the board summed up a good year, with advances made in public appearances and fundraising activities such as a booth at Valley Appreciation Day and barbecues. 

Re-elected to office were: Don Whiteford, president; Jen Harvey, vice-president; Anne Futa, secretary; and Shizu Futa, treasurer. 

Also elected were two board members-at-large, Jill MacEachern and Laura Lovett. 

With plans to increase the number of barbecues to five this year, re-implementing their Golf Fore Paws at Coy Par 3, and inaugurating what it hopes will be an annual Black-and-White Catsino, ICAN is seeking reliable volunteers who can help with these events as well as cleaning. 

ICAN is also looking forward to finding new ways to increase its profile and expand its service to the community. 

If you are interested in becoming a member or volunteer, you can send an email to [email protected], visit the website at https://icanbc.com/, or phone 250-341-7888. 

Administrative office hours are currently 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays. 

The golf tournament is tentatively planned for mid-August, and the Catsino for the third weekend in November. Please keep an eye out for announcements and come out to support a worthy cause.
