posted Mar 31, 2017, 9:13 AM by Stewart Vander Velden

Dear Partners and Friends of Meadowvale Neighbours' Café,

It's our pleasure to welcome Marlene Evangelista to a new role at Meadowvale Neighbours' Café as of April 1st.  Marlene has been a faithful volunteer for several years at the cafe and part of the volunteer staff team since September 2016 and a member of our Community Relations Team helping to formulate our mission and vision statements along with outreach strategies.  She has helped successfully bring on new partners.  Marlene has a great passion for the work of the cafe and a great relationship with the other volunteers.  This transition is a natural one for her and the cafe.

In her new role, Marlene will take on the responsibility of overseeing the weekly operations of the Monday cafe, support of volunteers, and coordinating special events.  She will do a great job!

Stephen Reist will continue as coordinator in an administrative function, support our cafe friends and support Marlene and the cafe staff team.  

Please join us in officially welcoming Marlene.
