Past President

Jay Nelson

Jay is a serial volunteer and has served on various other boards, primarily for arts organizations. He lived in Palliser for 5 years as a child and was drawn back to the community as an adult due to the great location and the proximity to nature.

Facilities Director

Cal Melrose

Cal volunteers at the PBP as our Facilities Director and is one of our most valuable volunteers. He is always willing to go above and beyond to ensure that functionality, comfort and safety is met for all users of the Hall. Cal has time on his hands due to retirement, and volunteering has given him the opportunity to give back to the Community. He believes we are all members of the Community and should give back when we are able. We appreciate all that Cal does at the PBP!
