At this year’s banquet, held on April 28, Pat Yelle was presented with the 2016 Calgary AA Ringette Service Award. For the past 10 seasons, she has given our program outstanding support and countless hours of her time. Her daughter, Rachel Grant, a Calgary AA alumni, is now a second-year NRL Calgary RATH player.
Pat has served in many roles throughout the years, from volunteering on her daughter’s teams, to being a valued member of our AA Committee. She has held many board positions, including:
- VP Operations
- Hotel Coordinator
- Banquet Coordinator
- Casino Coordinator
- AA Committee Rep for EGRT
In addition to these visible roles, Pat has been even more crucial behind the scenes. With her background in law, she has lent her expertise with our association’s annual returns, operating policies and procedures, bylaws, code of conduct pledges, and most recently, our administrative transfer from company to society status. Considering all the paperwork handled, she was an immense help during this transition.
Congratulations, Pat! Thank you for your work, dedication, and charm. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
