The LLNB AGM was held in Sussex on the weekend of October 12-13, 2001. And what a successful event it was! It was the time for old friends to renew their friendships, and for new friends to be made. There were many wonderful workshops offered for the interest and benefit of tutors, students and council executive members.
We would like to thank all of our workshop facilitators, especially Lynne LaLonde, who flew in from Ottawa from the National Literacy Secretariat to offer training in Proposal Writing to our many councils. The highlight of the weekend was once again the banquet with its Award Ceremonies and Entertainment. Our entertainment was provided by an very talented young man who we know is going places. Travis Saunders is, at the present time, a 17 year old student from Fredericton, but his talent and energy kept a room full of discriminating volunteers captivated throughout his entire performance.
A big kudos to Sussex and their wonderful conference committee! You did a marvellous job which could be seen in the face of everyone in attendance. Great work!
