Club President Sarah Bujold who attended the hearing says Collett cleaned out their accounts and as president, she was able to submit a victim impact statement to the court.

She adds Collett has already made some restitution, but there is still $7,500 owed back to the club coffers.

Bujold adds the club is glad to have the case resolved and is looking forward to rebuilding the organization.

She says the club is winding down its season, but will be looking for new registrations later in the summer and extends a thank you to those who have been assisting the club in getting back on its feet.

Club President Sarah Bujold provided The Moose with her Victim Impact Statement on behalf of the club. It is printed here with her permissions.
