It was so so cool to visit with our Canadian Snowbirds pilots and CF-18 pilot Patrick "PACO" Gobeil yesterday, as they touched down in Fort St. John for the formal announcement of our 2013 Fort St. John Air Show. The Air Show will take place next July 27 & 28, 2013, the first time in almost a decade that it will take place on a weekend. Can't wait!!!
I had the privilege of visiting with BC Premier Christy Clark at the Official Grand Opening of the Fort St John Hospital & Peace Villa. She was here to join in a great day of celebration and appreciation for an incredible project completed on time and on budget. What an amazing addition to our community. The new hospital and care centre measures 23,000 square-metres, doubling the size of the previous facility, which was built back in the 1960’s.
We enjoyed an amazing Canada Day Celebration in Fort St. John, beginning with a free pancake breakfast! After the church service in the park, we climbed aboard the Fire Truck and led the Canada Day Parade through the city. Then it was back to Centennial Park for an afternoon of entertainment and fun, topped off with a great fireworks show just before the day ended. Thank you to all who gave of your time and talents to make this day so special! My little grandbaby was there to wave and cheer as the parade passed by.
