Congrats Tom Thiessen & Pram Tappia!

Tom was recognized by the General Council Winnipeg Community Centres for his role as DCC Past President and Pram recieved the Above and Beyond award for his exceptional volunteerism with the community centre!

  Tom Thiessen has been a true visionary, leading Dakota Community Centre as President/Board Chair from 2014 to 2017 – a period of great change and growth for the Community Centre.
Most remarkable of his lengthy list of accomplishments include, initiation of Dakota’s first Site Master Plan and, his commitment to moving forward the complex and necessary pieces to pave the way for the Centre’s successful Fieldhouse Expansion Project. Tom was also instrumental in steering the organization through the transition to a new CEO, spearheaded the governance reorganization, and helped develop the Centre/s first-ever Strategic Plan.
Along with being a youth sport coach and volunteer in several other capacities, Tom, his wife Lise and their three children have dedicated countless hours towards ensuring the success of our club.
Tom’s legacy and impact on Dakota and the community cannot be overstated. Dakota CC is sincerely grateful to Tom for more than 8 years of exemplary leadership and outstanding dedication.

Pram Tappia has served as the Youth Soccer Convenor for more than 10 years.  Much of the success of the soccer program is due to Pram’s knowledge and commitment to working diligently with the volunteer coaches.  Pram’s dedication and commitment to community service shows in the interest shared by the soccer playing families in the Dakota community.  Pram is well connected with both WYSA and MSA and is always willing to look at ways to improve and enhance the soccer experience of youth at Dakota.  Pram will forever be considered part of the Dakota Family and we would like to thank him for his 10 years of dedicated service.
