The Kenora & Lake of the Woods Region Community Foundation has selected its new leader. 

Shannon Robinson assumed the position of Board President at their most recent AGM and she will be taking the place of Dennis Alvestad who has served as President for the past nine years.

“In some ways it's hard to believe that my three terms are up. It seemed to go by so quickly. I guess that’s why they say time flies when you’re having fun,” Alvestad says. 

“Making an impact on my communities needs and working with great like-minded people made staying my full term limit a no-brainer. With that in mind, I do intend on making myself available as a volunteer in any way that makes sense for our Foundation.”

New board members include Jess Rheault, Gord McCool, Kyle Attanasio and Laura Wheatley. The Foundation is saying farewell to Sayer Down and Adam Smith.
