Central Saanich Community Association Board of Directors

Chair: Celeste Zimmer – Celeste greatly enjoys Central Saanich living with so many nearby farms with fresh produce available, her short walk to access the beach and the abundant trail system the region has to offer. She has a strong passion for the health and environmental sector and has been working in the field of community development for the past 12 years.

Outside of work she enjoys explorative pursuits with friends, family, and her two dogs, rock climbing, biking, gardening, sailing, scuba diving and being on the water via any means necessary!

Secretary: David Graham – David and his wife Bryony lived for 30 years in the Oldfield valley before moving to Brentwood Bay in 2008. They have two daughters and one granddaughter. David enjoys helping in the community, gardening, golfing, projects, hiking and biking.

Treasurer: Alex Apouchtine – Alex has been a resident of Brentwood Bay for the last 15 years. After a long career in many different aspects of IT, he finds himself busy promoting homemade, handmade crafts through involvement in planning local craft markets. When not busy with craft markets he enjoys working in his garden, as well as repairing and building things, especially those made out of wood!

Member at Large: Michele Bond – Michele, her husband David and two daughters Kristen and Kyrie moved to Central Saanich 28 years ago. They live on a small horse farm in the Martindale Valley. Along with the horses, they have a few chickens and ducks and always an Airedale. The daughters have moved out, but are not too far and frequently visit the farm with their daughters. Michele can be found most mornings walking her latest edition Airedale Sailor at Island View Beach.
