Over the past weeks the board has been looking for a person with skills and experience that will best help guide our club forward. It is with great pride that the Board of Directors announces the hiring of Ms. Melinda Michalak as our new Club Manager. It is our belief that Melinda brings many beneficial attributes to the job and we look forward to her starting work in the new year.

Melinda has been a curler at Marpole for a number of years. Melinda feels she has developed a friendly and respectful rapport with many of her fellow curlers. I hope this bodes well for her working together with all of you in the future.

Melinda will be training with Robbie this week, and will officially start her role on January 2.

I know that she will do her very best to deal with your requests and concerns, but please respect her time to familiarize herself with her new position.

She will be a great asset to the club. I hope that you will find Melinda to be the gracious and approachable lady we did.

Gary Sutcliffe, MCC President
