We had a very successful AGM and now have a new Board of Directors. They are:
Thank you to all who came forward for nomination; I’m confident you will enjoy your term.

This is a new year in many, many ways. It’s not only new in the obvious ways (like dates and emptied inventory bins) but in other, less obvious ways. For example,
I’m sure there are many more firsts in store for us but you get the idea!
The other first that presents itself is the number of first-time recipients we have for our Hugs items. Our distribution numbers show that the need is increasing by significant amounts every year. Historically, we’ve hit quantity “firsts” every single year that we’ve done our Winter Woollies disbursement.
Following that example, we can expect that this year will be another “new” and higher disbursement total. We will need to use all of our new resources to introduce Handmade Hugs to new people and places. We will need to expect the unexpected as far as production and distribution by increasing our volunteer numbers and our production numbers in order to be prepared for the almost-assured increase in clients.
To that end, let’s make the up-coming Hug-A-Thon the biggest and best ever!
