Cherryville celebrates Foisy

An open house is being held Saturday to honour Foising who is retiring as regional district director after 20 years

Eugene Foisy is retiring as Cherryville regional district director after 20 years.

Cherryville residents are saying thank you to Eugene Foisy.

An open house will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Cherryville Community Hall to celebrate Foisy’s 20 years as regional district director.

“Twenty long years as an area director is no easy task but Eugene, you have done this for us,” Lynne Frerichs, Cherryville Community Club president, told the Cherryvillan.

Foisy was first elected in a 1994 byelection and then was acclaimed to office in every election after that. He decided not to seek re-election Nov. 15 and Hank Cameron has been acclaimed to the position of director.

“There are no enough words to express our thanks and appreciation for all that you have done and accomplished in those years,” Frerichs said of Foisy.

The Cherryville Community Hall is located at 158 North Fork Rd.
