Retirement of Jane Proudfoot

On Friday January 13, 2017 Jane the RA hosted a retirement reception for Jane Proudfoot. She worked for the RA for 38 years.

Jane has always been passionate about serving RA members. When a problem would arise her approach was always to find a solution that worked for everyone and not going looking for someone to blame. As the chairperson of the club I have had numerous meetings with her over the years. I have always found her professionalism, sense of humour and dedication to her job a joy to behold.

In recognition of all of the help that Jane has given to the canoe club, we presented her with a paddle that was wonderfully decorated by club Member Dot Bonnenfant (see attached). Along with the paddle we invited her to join us on a trip so that she can get it wet.

We wish Jane a long, happy, and healthy retirement.

Chairperson, RACCC
