FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 28, 2016 – St. John’s, NL – The board of St. John’s Pride Inc. today announced the resignation of four board members. Former members-at-large Pamela Sheaves and Karin Power have resigned due to personal reasons. Christopher Flis resigned from the Co-Chair Finance position and Roz Morgan resigned as member-at-large due to the large amount of time and work necessary to sort the board’s administrative and financial documentation.

While the board makes this announcement with heavy hearts, it looks to the future and hopes the by-election will bring forward hard-working, passionate and positive candidates.

St. John’s Pride will hold a by-election to fill all four positions in the New Year on January 8.
