The Kelsey Trail Health Region is welcoming two new board members.

Porcupine Plain's Tracy Slobodian and Robert Mardell of Choiceland join the board, replacing Frank Garchinski and Darrel Guy, who served six and 11 years, respectively.

"On behalf of the Kelsey Trail Regional Health Authority, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to both Darrel Guy and Frank Garchinski for their dedication and service to the residents of the Kelsey Trail Health Region over their terms on the board," says Chairperson Rennie Harper. "Their experience, knowledge and contributions were invaluable to the board and they will truly be missed at our table.

Harper continued about the new additions.

"I am also very pleased to welcome our new members and look forward to having the opportunity to begin our work together later this month. They both bring diverse backgrounds, experience and knowledge to the table that will be valuable to our team."

Slobodian and Mardell join Harper, Clarence Hendrickson (Carrot River), Kathleen Bedard (St. Brieux), Gordon Cresswell (Tisdale), Dennis Koch (Melfort), Richard Radom (Kelvington), and Nancy Steinbachs (Hudson Bay) on the board.
