Being Friendly Neighbours
It was my privilege to represent Fort St. John at the 2012 Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance Sport Events Congress in Richmond. It was another opportunity to brag about our awesome community and our amazing sports facilities! We also used the time to schmooze with our Trade Show neighbours as we were located right beside our wonderful WestJet friends.
What a Ball!
Sharon and I dressed up for a fabulous evening at the 4th Annual Firefighter’s Ball in support of the British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. Enjoyed some great food and wonderful conversations, along with an exciting Live Auction! What's not to like?! Thank you Fort St. John, for being such a supportive and generous community!
I had an excellent time representing the City of Fort St. John at the Trade Show this weekend! What a great opportunity to meet so many of you, and have some wonderful conversations about living, working, and playing in this awesome community! I appreciated so much the comments and questions you had about the future of the city, and was overwhelmed by the creative and constructive ideas you shared to make FSJ an even better place to be! . . . and yes, I ate way too many mini-donuts!
On Tuesday afternoon, we attended the official announcement and lighting of the digital clock that will countdown the days until the hospital is officially open. I am so excited about this new facility and the positive impact it will have on our community! As of Tuesday, the clock read 73 days, which means the hospital is set to open June 21st.
Once again, we had an opportunity to show off our magnificent sports facilities as our own New Totem Archery Club hosted the 2012 Canadian 3D Indoor Archery Championship, welcoming archers from all across Canada. As I attended the Opening Ceremonies and had a chance to talk with several visitors, I was reminded of how fortunate we are to have this great facility. Congratulations to all the competitors, and especially our own members, who walked away sporting some new medals around their necks!
