Thanks From The Friends!

Friends of SFGC – One Club, Stronger Together

SEPTEMBER 17, 2021

Dear Friends,

Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who supported the Friends of SFGC campaign over the past several months.  Because of your endorsement, we have an opportunity to rebuild and rejuvenate the Club.

In the September 14 vote for the Board of Directors, the Friends’ slate of candidates netted a majority of 75-plus per cent of the votes.

The new Board of Directors:

  • Diana Barkley, President
  • Elizabeth Martin, Vice Pres
  • Matt Sullivan, Treasurer
  • Cheryl de Graaf, Secretary 
  • Wayne Wagstaff, Hatchery
  • Craig Archambault, Fishing
  • Geoff Higginson, Membership
  • Raymond Jones, Bookings/Hall
  • James Wilkins, Bldg Maintenance
  • Kevin Blakely, PR
  • Don Pitcairn, Grounds

Members from the previous board re-elected are:

  • Stan Jones
  • Rob Reynolds
  • Fred Koch
  • Bill Ridge

As well, there is a four-way tie for the 16th spot.  These members are:

  • Dawne Deeley, Hunting
  • Allan Millen, Range
  • Annie Kaps, Director at Large
  • Ron Meadley

The historical vote this past week was a true testament to the belief of so many in staying true to the vision of those founders in 1957 who mortgaged their homes to purchase this amazing property.

We will get to work right away starting with a Board meeting next week where we will set our immediate and long-term goals and priorities. 

We believe in a bright future for all members of the SFGC. Thanks for being part of our team.
