The 2022 Annual General Meeting: A Huge Success with a Glimpse of the Exciting Future

The Georgian Triangle Humane Society Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on June 23rd at the Collingwood Legion. This gathering brought together volunteers, staff members and donors who reviewed all of the successes of 2021 and what’s ahead of the future of the GTHS. What made this meeting special was that this was the first in-person AGM since 2019.

After Ashley Kulchycki’s Call to Order, Sonya Reichel, Executive Director, presented the overview of the 2021 successes and financials.

Throughout 2021, there were many wonderful moments and positive impacts made by you. Take the story of Zinc, a beloved cat who was reunited with her adopter who moved out of province. Or the success of our Home for the Holidays campaign which resulted in a stunning 127 cats being adopted in December 2021.

The GTHS also made a big leap forward into the by closing a five-acre land deal in Collingwood south-end. The new Regional Centre for Pets and People will be a 19,200 square foot centre which will allow more space, additional services and a brighter future for the GTHS.
