LLL-Canada elects new board members

KITCHENER, Ont. – In a late-summer ballot, members of Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada elected two new members to its five-member Board of Directors. Joining the board are Marilyn Jacobi from Kitchener, Ontario and Joel Haberstock from Coldstream, B.C. The new members will serve a two-year term.

Continuing on the board are Ian Adnams (Richmond, B.C.), president, and Gordon Schoepp (Onoway, Alta.), treasurer. The new members replace Ed Tiefenbach (Regina, Sask.) who was not eligible for re-election after serving two terms and Clarence Elle (Calgary, Alta.) who did not stand for election.

At its September meeting, the board received and accepted the resignation of Stan Diehl of London, Ont. Filling the vacancy and serving the second year of Mr. Diehl’s term is Stephen Braaten from Regina, Sask.

The new board members will be installed at the League’s Annual General Meeting, Saturday, October 27 at Faith Lutheran Church in Kitchener. Prior to the meeting LLL members, supporters, and friends are invited to attend a luncheon meet-and-greet for Stephen Klinck, newly-retired Managing Director who served the organization for 30 years.

It’s about Life

We believe that Life is a gift, a precious gift of God, that is to be used to glorify Him and to serve others.

With its joys and delights our earthly Life can be wonderful but at times Life can also be difficult, with pain and even sorrow. There are times in Life when each of us needs some assistance or guidance as we face these challenges. For our resources click here.
