I am both honored and humbled to be chosen by the Executive Committee to serve my second two-year term as President of CCMF (Community Concern for the Medically Fragile). As I prepare to commence the next term, I want to take a moment to pass along my heartfelt thanks to all my colleagues who have made CCMF what it is today. I would like to thank Heather Martin for her past service on the Executive Committee and wish her good luck in her new ventures. Also, I would like to welcome our new member and executive secretary Lisa Rombough to our team.
The past 30 years has been an amazing journey for CCMF. Through fund raising we support medically fragile individuals, their families and the medically fragile community with a place to live, financial support, transportation services and interactive activities. In the beginning we helped establish a six-room supportive living home, Standing Oaks, in Sarnia, Ontario for medically fragile individuals. Over the past three years we have been able to support the addition of four new rooms to Standing Oaks, providing private rooms for nine permanent individuals and one private room for ongoing short-term respite living.
Whatever the future holds, be assured that CCMF will continue towards excellence as has been done in the past.
On behalf of the Executive Committee, we are honored and privileged to serve the medically fragile community. To assist us in our efforts, we would like to extend our invitation for your support and participation, as a member, volunteer or sponsor. We look forward to hearing from you!
