Royal City Farmers Market 2010 Board of Directors set to make the market grow, grow, grow!
NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. – The Royal City Farmers Market is pleased to welcome two fresh faces to the 2010 Board of Directors elected at the RCFM AGM on January 28. Mompreneur owner of online baby boutique Pinky & Co. Alix Cote and programmer and photographer Graham Ballantyne will join incumbents Andrew Murray, Will Tomkinson, Sheila Rowswell, John Ashdown and Matthew Laird in planning the continued growth of the market in 2010.
One of the market’s priorities in 2010 is to attract more members to the association. RCFM will offer exclusive benefits for members including discounts on RCFM’s reusable shopping totes and special ‘member appreciation’ markets.
“I think the time has come where we need to concentrate on growing our membership, ensuring there are member benefits, and contributing to the community as a whole,” says RCFM President Andrew Murray.
Adding high quality vendors is also a priority. Says Board Vice President and Vendor Liaison Will Tomkinson, “We have to work to make sure that we continue to attract high quality vendors to the market so that we can offer the very best to the citizens of New Westminster.”
Two indoor markets remain in the winter market season, with a ‘Spring Fling’ theme on March 20 and a Garden Market theme on April 17. Weekly Thursday markets resume in June in Tipperary Park.
The 2010 Board of Directors includes:
- Andrew Murray – President
- Will Tomkinson – Vice President and Vendor Liaison
- Alix Cote – Secretary
- Sheila Rowswell – Treasurer
- Graham Ballantyne – Director
- John Ashdown – Director
- Matthew Laird – Director
