Diane Pearce


Diane Pearce developed a deep interest in communities and how they work after moving to Amherst Island in 1973 and becoming Clerk-Treasurer for the former Township of Amherst Island in 1974. Prior to municipal amalgamation in January 1998, Diane was selected as the first Chief Administrative Officer of Loyalist Township where she remained until her retirement in 2013. Recent activities include the Sand Beach Advisory Committee and she currently chairs Waterside Summer Series Music Festival and the Amherst Island Community Café boards. As a committed volunteer for charitable and not for profit organizations, Diane recognizes the many ways that volunteer groups enhance our society and make our communities better places to live. She is always eager to learn how this enhancement can grow and be more effective.
