The Kerrisdale Community Centre Society (KCCS) recently honoured retired KCCS board member Fred Jay for his many years of dedicated service. Elected to the board of directors in 2012, Fred was most recently involved in the Program Committee and an active participant in the Opera Zone since its 2017 inception. He also served as KCCS vice-president in 2015 and joined a variety of other committees over the years, including Community Engagement, Finance, Joint Operating Agreement, Arena and Pool, Strategic Planning and Park Board Liaison.
It is the society’s custom to provide a gift and certificate of appreciation to retiring board members. On July 26, 2023, at the Board Summer Social, Fred was presented with his certificate and a $200 gift (see photo here and above), of which he generously donated $100 to the B.C. Children’s Hospital.
You’ll still find Fred busy at the centre these days in other roles, including as vice-president on the Seniors Council and kitchen volunteer.
