Members of the Executive:
The Executive of the Falaise Community Association presently has six directors. Some directors are nominated to fill special roles, such as president or secretary. The others represent the interests of the community and help in running the Association.
Cynthia Hawksworth became a member of the Falaise Community Association Executive in July 2019. She moved from the Maplewood area of Saanich to the Falaise Community in November 2018. Since then she has enjoyed getting to know the neighbourhood and community residents.
Cynthia has one adult son. Prior to retirement, she worked for 33 years for the government of B.C as a community and regional planner. Cynthia keeps fit by attending Jazzercise classes 5 or 6 mornings a week and hiking with her two rambunctious dogs. Since moving to her new home she has been busy renovating her house and garden. She’s looking forward to life in her new community.
Sandrine Lio joined the FCA board in June 2019. She was born in France but has lived in Canada most of her life. She is a grandmother and a mother of two grown children. When she is not working, she volunteers at the SPCA, as she has a huge passion for the welfare of animals.
Sandrine has enjoyed living in the community for the past 18 years, though she is hopeful that something could be done about the traffic noise that impacts the community.
