The first “Gail Neilson” Motor Maid of the Year Award was presented this year. It recognizes a current member for her exceptional service to Atlantic Canada Motor Maids over a 12-month period (November 1 to October 31) in supporting the principles of the Motor Maids and those of the Atlantic Canada District by:
· Preserving our history
· Supporting our traditions
· Presenting a positive image of women motorcyclists through role modelling and mentoring
This year the award went to Gail Neilson, the epitome of a true Motor Maid. CONGRATULATIONS, GAIL!
Terms of reference for the Gail Neilson Motor Maid of the Year Award are available in the members section (form/docs page).
Members celebrated the years of service by outgoing District Director, Anne Weeden, and the incoming District Director, Denise Pelrine. Also included in the celebrations were Lynne Campbell, new ADD for Nova Scotia and continuing ADD for New Brunswick, Heather Henderson.
After the meeting, many of the members spent the night in Moncton, where we enjoyed a pizza and wings buffet in a relaxed atmosphere, played a mind challenging motorcycle scrambled words game (thanks, Denise) and witnessed amazing towel art. Who knew Catherine had such talents!
A detailed summary of the meeting is in the members section (forms/docs).
