Year end wishes from the president
APGO
As another year draws to an end I want to wish all our members a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Over the year, we at APGO have tried to streamline our operations, become more user-friendly and reach out to our members in this big province by holding more regional gatherings. I hope you've noticed a difference. We have also recently updated our website. It now has a new and updated look and we've worked to make it much easier for you to find the things you need, quickly. Please check it out and let us know what you think. And Field Notes aims to provide something of interest to everyone on a weekly basis.
