Some additions and revisions have been made to the website! I have added a new section on Health and Safety with a host of resources, including links to google forms where members can report issues such as – no keys; safety plan challenges; multiple duties and more. It is still a work in progress, but take a few minutes and check out the Health and Safety Section!

Throughout the school year, myself and possibly members of the Executive will be available to meet members at a coffee shop, for questions, or just to visit. I will announce the date and location one week in advance.
New this year, if you are planning to attend the announced coffee hour, please email the local. I will not waste member money to drive hours and sit alone in a coffee shop.
The first Coffee Hour is September 13th in Huntsville. The Tim Hortons off Highway 11 (Hanes Road) from 4pm to 5pm. Hope to see some of you there!
Also, everyone who attends a Coffee Hour will have their name in a separate draw for a $25 Tim Hortons gift card!
Join members of your Executive and other OTs for a chat and a drink. Bring your questions and concerns.
