Penticton—At the recent AGM of Pathways Addictions Resource Centre three staff members were honoured for their lengthy service and the new agency director was welcomed.

Counsellors Steve King and Dorothy Point and office manager Wendy Jones each received an award from the board of directors in recognition of 25 years of outstanding service.

“The importance of their work throughout the years in helping adults and youth with substance abuse issues cannot be overstated,” said board chair Sherry Ure.

Daryl Meyers was appointed to the position of Agency Director upon the retirement of Jeanni Jones.

Meyers brings an extensive background in administration management and working with children, youth and adults in a variety of contexts in the community.

She is the Director of Residential Life with Okanagan Hockey Group and was the Youth Outreach Coordinator for Pathways from 2006 until her appointment as Agency Directory

Meyers has also been instrumental in securing funding for various community organizations including Dragon Fly Pond Respite Society, Boys and Girls Club and Families First.

Located at 996 Main Street in Penticton, Pathways promotes the well-being of people affected by, or at risk of developing alcohol, drug and related problems.

The society is primarily funded by the Interior Health Authority of B.C. and is regulated by guidelines maintained by the B.C. Ministry of Health.
