Ali Mansour - Treasurer 

Head cashier for the base of Wainwright. I am the father of four children, I am married too.
I volunteered to join the WMFRC Board Of Director in May as the Treasurer. Unfortunately, I will be promoted and posted to Ottawa at the end of the month of August. Despite the fact that I did not stay for a long period, I can assure you, the people on the Board of Directors are professional, great and dedicated to the community. The WMFRC is going in the right direction with them.
