Long-serving Action for Children employee Annette McGivern retired from her role at The Vancouver Children’s Centre last week.
Annette, who worked at the centre for 20 years, stood down a few days before her 70th birthday this Saturday.
She started her career with NCH, as it was known then, in August 1997 when she was employed as a part time administrator for the newly-opened family centre in town.
Annette played a pivotal role in implementing a Sure Start project across the Gaywood Park and Fairstead areas of town.
