Just a note to thank everyone for all the help with PtCS fundraising this year. Our brunches have been well received and occasionally profitable, and thanks to all of you, our annual People's Choice and Oscar award shows raised enough funds for us to continue to operate the peer counselling and referral line for another year.
Kudos also to Gen-Q (formerly Inside Out) the GLBT youth group, for being an amazing presence in the community, and continuing to offer a safe social environment for GLBT folks under 25.
Look for updates and our AGM notice coming soon!

A note of thanks to Curt S. for keeping us technologically advanced.
Additionally, a fond farewell to Stef M. who sat on the PTCS board last year, and is leaving us to pursue her career goals in Winnipeg--good luck, Steffy!
