Welcome Barb, to Lakeshore Recreation
*From: Gord and Ann MacKay
We are fortunate to have found a very capable individual to lead the Lakeshore Team as we approach the 23/24 winter season. On November 6, Barb Abell will commence duties as our new General Manager of all day-to-day operations at Lakeshore. We will continue to work alongside Barb as she becomes familiar with the people and the business of Lakeshore.
Barb brings a powerful enthusiasm for fitness and health promotion, as well as fitness instructor credentials. She also has had considerable leadership, management, and customer service experience. In the past, she owned and operated Barbell’s Fitness, a successful business in Paisley. In addition, Barb has been an office manager at a local retirement home in Port Elgin and the leasing manager at a retirement home in Owen Sound. You will find that Barb has a personable approach, with a team-oriented leadership style.
She also finds time for some volunteer work as an offsite excursion leader and fitness class instructor for seniors in Owen Sound and as a leader in the Minds in Motion Program with the Alzheimer’s Society in Southampton.
Expect to see Barb pop into any of the classes or activities at Lakeshore. She is eager to get to know the people and operations of Lakeshore as quickly as she is ‘Abell’.
Welcome to Lakeshore, Barb!
