C. H. Boucher was re-elected people's warden of the Pro-Cathedral of the Redeemer for his 11th successive term at the annual meeting Thursday.
Mr. Boucher has been in Calgary since 1911 and was vestry clerk for five years before becoming people's warden. He served as honorary secretary-treasurer for the Calgary diocese of the Church of England from 1942 to 1944.

ARCHDEACON R. Axon served as president during the absence of a rector.
A successful financial year was reported with almost $30,300 in receipts received. Contributions were made to the War Memorial Fund and to the Anglican advance appeal. E. L. Baker, delegate to the Synod, said there was a necessity of additional envelope subscribers to secure the income of the parish.
Ernest E. Peterson, vestryman, reported on the progress of the War Memorial Fund and urged that parishioners endeavor to complete the scheme during 1948.
