The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation and the Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation wish to extend our sincerest thank you to the many individuals and organizations that provided information, guidance, and statistics for our fifth Waterloo Region's Vital Signs report.
This year's Waterloo Region's Vital Signs could not have been made possible with the help of Quarry Integrated Communications for the design and layout of the report, PMG Intelligence for hosting the online survey, and to Cober Printing for support in printing the report. These partners have exceeded our expectations with their support and encouragement!
We are significantly indebted to the dynamic community leaders of our expert resource panel who helped provide the foundation for this year's Waterloo Region's Vital Signs - Ernie Ginsler, Roger Farwell, Elaine Brunn Shaw, Lorie Fioze, Todd Letts, Bruce Laukner, Karen Mason, Mary Louise McAllister, Doug Brown, Debbie Hoekstra, Steve Beckett, Tim Beckett, Mike Morrice, Anthony Piscitelli, and Carol Simpson.
We'd also like to thank our media friends for helping us take the Vital Signs message out to the community. Many thanks to Rogers Television, 570 News and CTV Southwestern Ontario for promoting the report in the news. And finally, a warm thanks is sent to the Waterloo Region Record for their support and promotion of Waterloo Region's Vital Signs through a four-page Waterloo Region's Vital Signs insert, numerous ads encouraging people to get involved in the Waterloo Region's Vital Signs photo contest, and for publishing our monthly Vital Signs advertorials.
And, a huge THANK YOU to all the Waterloo Region's Vital Signs Photo Contest Winners and participants!
One last and very special thank you goes to The Cowan Foundation for their leadership and generous financial support in making the 2012 Waterloo Region's Vital Signs Priority Report a reality.
