Bruce Kachuk has served the FREDA organization well since April 1998. He continues in the capacity of a valued volunteer and, additionally, has become an Associate Member of the Centre. Bruce kept the downtown office in Harbour Centre going while he lived in Vancouver. What is amazing is that he kindly agreed to maintain his helpful presence via computer ether space since moving to Toronto with his partner in 2005. He was the webmaster of the FREDA website initially, which he created in 2001 and nurtured with care. As well, he has monitored the FREDA e-mail system. These tasks allowed FREDA to continue as a viable centre. While here, he also undertook a variety of other tasks as the FREDA staff person and communications director. Those included editing and production of reports; arranging meetings for FREDA purposes; ordering supplies; maintaining a pleasant and helpful presence with other Harbour Centre personnel; fielding queries; and otherwise being the FREDA face at Harbour Centre. We still receive enquiries about how he is doing from those whom he touched while here. We wish him all the best and give him our deep gratitude both for who he is as a person and for all that he has done for us and others. Thank you, Bruce!
