Mary Ruth Harris is the new Comox Valley event manager for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island (BGCCVI).
“Mary Ruth’s extensive background in media, communications and event management combined with her passion and enthusiasm, will be a considerable asset to our club,” says director Robin Smart. “The BGCCVI is looking towards 2014 to update our overall communications, our social media presence and communication materials, digital and print.”
Mary Ruth will continue as host of Shaw TV’s go! Island on channel four Tuesdays and Fridays, and she is a newly appointed director on the board for the Comox Valley Child Development Association. Her first big challenge for the BGCCVI will be the Christmas Village brought to you by Odlum Brown at Crown Isle from Dec. 2 to 16.
“I’m thrilled to be working with such a talented group of people on behalf of the children and families that benefit from the amazing programs offered by the Boys and Girls Clubs,” Harris reacts. “I am very excited about this year’s Christmas Village and cannot wait to see the creative entries … really curious to see who is going to have the most unique gingerbread house creations and who is going to have the most adorable bear and who will come up with the most sought-after package! The silent auction is going to be fierce!”
The BGCCVI is the largest licensed child-care provider on Vancouver Island that specializes in programs that support child and youth development.
In the Comox Valley, the group offers Before and After school-care programs at Aspen Park Elementary, and Brooklyn Elementary as well as spring, summer and winter day camps and facilitating innovative parenting programs.
