The Chapter of the Year is presented to the Muscular Dystrophy Canada Chapter that has demonstrated excellence during the past year in any, or all of the following areas: fundraising, public awareness, services and/or volunteer engagement/development. Located in Saint John, New Brunswick, the Fundy Chapter is certainly a worthy recipient in all categories, and has a terrific and dedicated team of volunteers. While the Sparks family have been long-standing Chapter members and volunteer leaders, many others have participated in keeping the Chapter going for more than 20 years. The Ellsworth family most recently have stepped up, with Trisha Ellsworth taking on the role of Chapter President. Also important to mention is Robert Patterson, who is a dedicated and exemplary Treasurer. Special mention should also be made of Vicki Stafford-Mullin, who has played a key role in ensuring the success of the Fundy Chapter’s annual auction.
The Chapter holds many annual activities as well as a successful Walk for Muscular Dystrophy, including an auction and get togethers such as their popular Holiday party. You can count on a warm welcome from the Fundy Chapter, and lots of good food and laughs!
