An intimate, informal remembrance of Felicity Edwards’ life will be held in Canmore on March 3rd. We anticipate a celebration worthy of the extraordinary individual we all knew her to be.
Beginning in 2000, Felicity was instrumental in facilitating and partnering with the executive board leadership team to build the 5 year business plan for our capital campaign. She was also involved with developing our first strategic plan.
