David Austin
As some of you are aware, Harmonize For Speech lost a devoted trustee this past September 4th when David Austin succumbed to his valiant battle with liver disease.
David served the Ontario District as Treasurer in 2005 and, in this role, he was appointed to the Board of Trustees of the Harmonize For Speech Fund. By the time his term as District Treasurer ended, David had become so completely dedicated to the aims of H4S that he volunteered to remain a trustee and help in whatever way he could.
H4S needs to replace the enthusiasm and commitment that David so ably displayed and invites any member of the Ontario District who believes strongly in the goals of H4S to consider volunteering for this very fulfilling position.
Ideally, a member from either the Eastern Division or the Western Division will volunteer in order to diversify the composition of the Board which currently consists of members from the Central, Northern and Peninsula Divisions.
The job is not onerous. The trustees meet quarterly and the meetings, which usually last for no more than four hours, are held three times a year in Don Mills and once a year at Harmony Ranch.
If you are looking for a way to contribute something back to your community but don't have a lot of time available, this may be the opportunity you are seeking.
Please contact our Chairman, George Shields, or any trustee for more information on this opportunity to participate in our District charity.
