The Winter Gala and AGM was a sold out event with 160 young producers and dairy suppliers attending the festive event at the Quality Hotel in Abbotsford. Steve Saccomano from Ritchie Smith Feeds was the emcee and kept the evening moving and everyone entertained. MYMP directors gave reports on the year’s past events.
The highlight of the evening continues to be the incredible door prizes donated by dairy suppliers. The door prizes included a wide range of gift cards, Vancouver Canuck hockey tickets, Vancouver Giants’ tickets, toy tractors, and bags of corporate swag. The children’s toy tractors are always very popular.
Three directors stepped down from the MYMP board this year: Lorene Barnum, Kevin Mammel and Ryan Thibaudier. MYMP would like to thank the three for all their great work as MYMP directors.
Elections were held for four director positions. Nick Janssens was re-elected and Greg Hessels, Shawn Arends, and Bryce Tuytel were elected to the MYMP board.
MYMP would like to thank all our Winter Gala and AGM sponsors. Anser Power that provided a free drink ticket to all the attendees. Other sponsors included PrarieCoast, FCC, Clearbrook Grain & Milling, BCDA, Goosen Construction, J & D Dairy Service, and JR Legacy Hoof Trimming. MYMP would not be able to hold our events without their generous support.
Executive elections were held on January 17 and executive positions are: Aaron Neels Chair, Brittney Schurmann Vice-Chair, Greg Hessels Secretary, and Carla Soutar Treasurer.
