Michelle Pari Send Off
Michelle Pari, COO with Halifax Humane Society for 28-years, finally retired. Her last day was January 29, 2021. We created a video for Michelle with many of her friends and associates bidding her a fond farewell and wishing her a very happy retirement.
In turn, Michelle asked that a video be created to thank many of the same people and the HHS board and staff. The video contains images for a look back over 28-years. (Songs from Paul Anka and the Beatles are for presentation purposes only and have not been monetized for revenue.)
After Michelle's last board meeting, the board of directors and executive staff presented Michelle with a retirement gift and the 2020 Humanitarian of the Year Award.

To the left, Michelle and her husband, Mark Pari were very surprised to learn the Employee & Volunteer Break Room was dedicated in their honor for the years of dedicated service they both have provided. Mark has been the IT manager and a committed volunteer at HHS for many years. He will continue to be the IT manager.
