...on Kehn, currently serving his second year as Treasurer of BB&C, has been selected as the Volunteer of the Month for April 2004.Ron joined BB&C in 1991, and this is not his first stint in an Executive position-in many ways, the most onerous of the many volunteer activities undertaken by club members.Clive Amos, who named Ron Volunteer of the Month in March 2000, mentioned at that time that Ron had been Membership Director and served two years as Secretary, as well as chairing the Raincoast ‘97 Committee, for which Clive described him as "instrumental in making that conference a great success."

reassuring presence is greatly appreciated not just by struggling newcomers, but those with more complicated problems as well.He
has also contributed many Newsletter articles and reviews, on a remarkable range of topics.

Along with Ron Kehn

Finally, we must recognize the leadership qualities of Ron Kehn, our RainCoast Chairman.
He encouraged and stimulated us all to make RainCoast 97 a conference BB&C could be proud of.
