Letter to the editor: Miss Quesnel committee moving on

An open letter from Liz Miller regarding the Miss Quesnel Self Development Society.


Open letter to the City of Quesnel.

I am writing this letter on behalf of the Miss Quesnel Self Development Society.

For the past several years we have had the pleasure of being a part of one of the most incredible programs for young ladies in our community,

It has been a rewarding experience to impact the lives of so many young women and to be a part of the program that has provided them with the opportunities and experiences they need to grow into successful young leaders.

The program would not have been successful without the ongoing support over the years from the City of Quesnel, Bob Graham, Coralee Oakes, Rae Perry, Maureen Ingstrup from Caryall Books and so many others.

We have had overwhelming support from so many and hope this will continue on in the future.

As a committee, we have decided it is time to move on to other pursuits with the sincere hope that someone else will take over this valuable program.

If you are passionate about supporting the young women of your community and providing them with opportunities to volunteer with numerous other non-profit organizations while developing leadership skills, then please consider a volunteer position with the Miss Quesnel Self Development Society.

We are happy to support and liaise with whoever is interested in taking on a leadership role as the program’s ongoing success is very important to us, our community and the hundreds of young women who have participated over the years.

To ensure continuation of the program, we ask that anyone interested in becoming a coordinator please email us at miss.quesnel@gmail.com.

If you would like more information, please visit our website at www.missquesnel.com.

Thank you,

Liz Miller

On behalf of the Miss Quesnel Self Development Society
