Dear Members and Supporters of the Kingsport Fitness and Wellness Society.

We have now been running for over two years and according to the bylaws of the society, it is time to call our second annual general meeting. This is the time for you, our members, to examine our accounts for the year, and participate in the selection of our new executive. Some of our board members will be stepping down and others will be stepping aside from their current positions. Also during the meeting we will look at what we have accomplished this year, including our expanded programming, grants awarded and, most recently, our very successful plant and bake sale (over $700)!

The date for our AGM is Sunday June 8 at 6pm, Lloyd Memorial Centre, Kingsport. Let's have a Pot Luck Supper, so we all have time to socialise and share ideas informally as well as hold a brief business meeting.

If you would like to sit on next year's executive board, renew your membership, join the society or become more involved in some other way, please contact one of the board members before June 1st.

Membership for the year April 2014- March 2015 remains $5 and entitles you to 10% at Sportchek.

 Thanks to all the volunteers and supporters of our recent Plant and Bake sale.
