Our AGM is taking place by the mighty Fraser River, in The Network Hub’s bright and colourful meeting space at New Westminster’s River Market, at the Westminster Quay. The event will feature an update from Sustainable Living Leadership Program 2016 grad Petra Markova. A light lunch* will be available during the networking segment from 12:00 -1:00 PM, with the AGM taking place from 1:00 – 2:30 PM.
*Lunch is included with your “RSBC & Friends” Royal City Paddlewheeler tour registration fee.
All are welcome. Current and former Board Members, SLLP alumni, RSBC supporters and friends are invited to see what we’ve been up to this past year.
Petra Markova, Sustainable Living Leadership Program 2016 grad
Since Petra completed the SLLP in 2016, she has been involved in environmental education through guest speaking and outreach initiatives. Earlier this year, Petra co-planned the Rivers Clinic for Environmental Leaders, a 3-day paddle program designed to connect local university students to each other and nature. Petra is currently in her fourth year of studying biology at Simon Fraser University, and plans to become a teacher.
After the AGM, the MV Native Paddlewheeler will set sail at 3:00 PM sharp for an RSBC & Friends Royal City Tour (afternoon Fraser River Paddlewheeler Cruise) upon the Lower Fraser River.
The cost to take part in the afternoon cruise is $46 per person, $82 per couple, or $134 for a family of four. The ticket prices include the 2-hour paddlewheeler cruise, a light lunch during the AGM and an RSBC family membership. More information / register.
The annual Fraser River Sunset Dinner Cruise, our trademark fundraiser for the Sustainable Living Leadership Program, is taking place the night before the AGM. This year’s event features celebrity chef Ned Bell as the guest speaker! Tickets for the Dinner Cruise are $150.00 each and include a plated three-course meal featuring wild Pacific salmon. Enjoy a 3-hour cruise, taking in the beauty of our surroundings from a unique water perspective. More information.
We would love to see you on one of the river cruises!
