 It is with great regret that the CGS Board has received notice of resignation from Russell Gammon, current Secretary-Manager of CGS.  He will continue to serve CGS until a replacement is found and will ensure a smooth transition to new management as the association wishes. 

Russell took the position of Secretary-Manager at a time when CGS was in great need of someone who had the ability and dedication in secretarial/management services and agriculture.  

Russell is investigating new opportunities after serving the CGS since September 11, 2019.

Gammon wishes CGS all the very best in growth and business success.
