Thank you, my friends, my town, my community, for setting the bar so high, for forcing me to compete on your level, for supporting me, and always inspiring me.

Honesty saves grief

I would like to thank the kind and honest employees (Ellie, Dave, and Shawn) at Alpine Cafe on Mckeever’s for finding my wallet in the store and keeping it safe overnight.

I did not realize I had left it there until the next morning, when I was looking around the house for it in a (needless to say) panicked state.

Thank you once again for saving me untold headaches and financial ruin if it had fallen into the wrong hands. Honesty prevails and angels are among us!

Telus Winter Classic a great success!

I would like to extend a huge thank you to all the volunteers and staff who supported the Telus Winter Classic for the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation.  It takes over 150 volunteers to put on this incredible weekend event!

We continue to receive tremendous support from our corporate partners with Telus leading the way – thank you. Our local support was again tremendous this year; it was great to see many of you having such great time at the Vegas Gala.

The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation is the largest single community fund raising organization and we give back over $450,000 each year to community endeavors throughout the Sea to Sky corridor. The support we receive truly makes a difference in our communities.

I would like give a HUGE thank you to Mei McCurdy, our Executive Director, for her dedication, energy, and commitment.  Her smile and happy disposition is infectious and we are very fortunate to have her leading our team!

Reading works

On behalf of the students and staff of Spring Creek and École La Passerelle, the Primary teachers would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all of the exceptional readers and storytellers who generously donated their talent and time to our Family Literacy Day on Jan. 27th. The students and families enjoyed the wonderful presentations of Chikako Akama, Evan Brynn-Jones, Cheryl Dolan, Devon Jones, Alix Nichol, Margot Murdoch, Tim Regan, Peter Shrimpton, Michel Tardif, Dave Walden, and Tim Wake. The day was a huge success, thanks to your support. You demonstrated a love of stories and reading, and showed us that we live in a community truly committed to literacy!

On behalf of the intermediate staff and students of Spring Creek the Intermediate teachers would like to express our sincere thanks to the five local authors who generously shared their writing experiences with us on literacy day. Both students and staff were fascinated to learn about the many different styles of writing and to meet live local authors. Thank you to Pina Belperio, Lisa Richardson, Rebecca Wood, Pam Barnsley and Kim Thompson for making our day a success.
