Annual General Meeting - Tuesday May 22

The African AIDS Angels  Annual General Meeting is set for
  • Tuesday May 22 at 7 p.m.
  • James Bay New Horizons Centre, 
  • 234 Menzies St., Victoria
All supporters are encouraged to attend. Tea, coffee and juice and other refreshments provided. This meeting is an opportunity to see what other angel-makers are producing.

The Board of Directors needs some additional members, so please consider standing for election. The board meets three times a year, a small commitment in time.

For more information about being a board member, call Vic at 250-472-6499.

At the meeting, Nathan How, one of our board members who has visited the Zambia orphanage we support, will present a short speech which won him a trip to visit the United Nations in New York this spring. The student competitors had to chose one of the UN's Millennium goals to research and speak on, so Nathan was able to draw on his personal experience at Makeni.
