Chair of Council - Lorraine Holding

Lorraine has been part of Harcourt for over 35 years. She is a founding member of the Handbell Choir which formed in 1991. After chairing the Official Board in 1996, she has continued to take leadership roles in various ad hoc committees and facilitation processes.

Most recently, she served on Ministry & Personnel Committee for six years and then transitioned into chairing the Sabbatical Coordinating Team for two years. She responded to her sense of call by accepting the role of Council Chair in fall 2015.

Outside of Harcourt, Lorraine has served as a Board/Executive member for the Volunteer Centre of Guelph/Wellington, and the Guelph Wellington Chapter of Stroke Recovery Canada. She also spends time in the rural area of her family roots, Owen Sound.
