It’s time for a coffee break on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 21- the last day of Tikinagan’s Supervisors Meeting. The two-day meeting is being held at the Lac Seul Events Centre, which is situated in Frenchman’s Head and about a five-minute walk from Judy Angeconeb’s house. Judy, an Assistant Director of Services for Tikinagan, is sitting at one of the tables, colouring intently on an activity sheet and taking a moment to herself when she looks up to see her husband, Ron, pushing a cart into the meeting room. She has no idea why he’s here but soon realizes what’s going on as she sees the cake atop the cart in front of him.
“That was a big surprise,” she laughs later as she talks about the celebration that afternoon. The cake was just one gesture Tikinagan Child and Family Services made to honour our longest serving employee yet. Judy is celebrating 30 years here at the agency.
