I joined the WAACC when I did my first pottery course in 2013.  I bring more enthusiasm than talent, but love being around other creative people!  This organization truly is aimed at serving the community as a whole and I enjoy being part of it.

Hello, my name is Terri Morrow (nee Hawkes). I was born and raised in Wetaskiwin. Got married and raised three children here, too.

I have 8 grandchildren; five of them are in our community and mainly involved in sports. I have served on several boards, the Inception of Victim Services Board, The Wetaskiwin and District Association (WOACC) for over ten years. Then I was on a board that worked as a liaison with the city and RCMP (CAC) bringing up issues that the RCMP were having: speeding, curfew, signage, etc.

I have many hobbies such as knitting, crocheting golf, Zumba in water, gardening and attending hockey games, swim meets that my grandchildren are involved in.

I still work Mon-Fri, 10 - 5 for my son. He owns Wetaskiwin Agencies. I would like to retire this year and spend more time doing crafts.
