Many thanks to those who help others

Attention: Firefighters , SAR organizations, RCMP, emergency services, service groups, volunteers and Hydro crews:

Words cannot even remotely do justice to the appreciation that I and my family have for all that you do to keep our community (and, at times, other communities) safe and enriched by your selfless efforts.

Please know that the work that you do (whether for pay or as a volunteer) is more appreciated than you can know.

My family and I live our lives more confidently and happily because we know that you are out there for us, should (God forbid), we ever need your services. May 2019 (and beyond) bring you all much good health, happiness and prosperity and may your day be filled with smiles.

Thanks ever so much!
