Shuffling the papers as she prepares to speak Community Development HAlton Executive Director Joey Edwardh delivers the message

Retiring Community Development Halton Executive Director Joey Edwardh.

Many people from the Halton community have been inquiring regarding a retirement celebration for Joey. At Joey’s request the Board of Directors and staff will NOT be hosting a retirement celebration in her honour. We respect her wishes and therefore ask the public to please send your best wishes to her directly at Community Development Halton. Joey will be in the office until Wednesday October 9, 2019.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I extend the very best wishes and gratitude to Joey for her tenure at the helm of CDH. The Board of Directors is proud of the accomplishments and impact under her leadership and the positive contribution she has made to the Halton community. Much of the work has been recognized and has been adopted in communities across the province.

Both CDH and Joey will be making new strides into the future of 2020. On behalf of the CDH Board of Directors, I wish Joey every success as she embraces new challenges on her future journey.

Sincerely, Jan Mowbray-President.

    The community has a lot to thank Joey Edwardh for. She made a difference when no one else was there to listen.

    I wish you good luck in your future endeavours – you will be missed.
