On behalf of the entire Cortes Island Emergency Social Services (ESS) Team, I would like to thank Dale Henderson for his contribution to our Team in support of the Cortes Island communities. Dale has provided our Team with his support both as a volunteer and as the Branch Manager for the Coastal Community Credit Union. As a volunteer, Dale has been a valuable member of our Team. Our Team benefited from Dale’s work at our meetings by providing his perspective and was always willing to lend a hand wherever needed. His sense of humour often provided us with a needed chuckle. Professionally, Dale’s support has been invaluable. Whenever we needed a place to meet, the Coastal Community Credit Union office was available and always with some of Shelly’s baking (thank you). Dale’s support paved the way for successful Coastal Community Credit Union grants to the Cortes Island Emergency Social Services Program.

In closing, Dale’s support to Cortes Island communities goes beyond the ESS Program as he have given of his time to other community organisations. Dale, you will be missed by many. Our Team wishes you and Shelly the best as you take your next journey. I know you have a special place in your heart for Cortes Island and we look forward to when you visit.

All the best,

Chris Dragseth
ESS Director
