Message from the Board Chair

On behalf of the Society Board I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members for your ongoing support for the Shalem community.  Your membership reflects a commitment to our seniors and our community including our municipal and provincial governments.  This support will be needed as we anticipate financial costs to address upgrades and general maintenance of our facilities.

This past June, the Board hosted a two-day Strategic Planning session which assisted in goal setting for meeting the present and future needs of our residents, staff and buildings.  The outcomes of the Planning sessions also enlightened the Board to address the concept "aging in place".  This has presented us with new and exciting challenges for future growth.  We are committed to ensure our staffing model will be able to meet the needs of our residents and that our facilities are updated to maintain a comfortable, safe and a home-like environment.

The ownership and passion of our current Board leads me to believe that with God's help we can reach our goals and objectives.  We covet the Society support so we can continue to collectively serve our seniors at Shalem.

I would like to express my thanks and gratitude to our Executive Director, Jerry, and his team for their commitment and dedication to ensure Shalem is 'A' place to call home.

In HIS service,
Tony VanderKraats
