BC Parks Supervisor retires
Over the years John has been instrumental in helping the SSA secure grant funding, writing letters of support, getting our Park Use Permit fees waived, ap...proved our application for trail fee collection and provided thousands of dollars of materials and labour to help us maintain our emergency shelter in the Babine Mountains. In keeping with a local government tradition, John's "buy out", (he buys the beer), was held at the Hudson Bay Lodge on January 16, 2015. John was joined by BC Parks Section Head, Mike Neto to accept a framed photo of the Burdette's Shelter in the Babine Mountain Provincial Park from SSA president Ron Fowler.
The inscription reads;
"Enjoy your retirement"
Thank you for your years of support
