PGOSA thanks

On Oct. 24, more than 200 members attended the 20th anniversary celebration for the Parksville Golden Oldies Sports Association at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

The event was attended by charter members, mayors Chris Burger and Teunis Westbroek and The NEWS. Most of the charter members are now in their eighties. Amongst them is Peter Kucey, who was officially recognized by the mayors of both communities with special gifts and an acknowledgment of his contribution.

Heartfelt gratitude and thanks go to staff at Quality Foods and Thrifty Foods for the beautiful presentation of the food, the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre staff for the set up of the hall, the anniversary committee members, all the various coordinators and volunteers who came out and helped make this event such a success.

We want to say thank-you for all your hard work and dedication. Without volunteers, organizations would not exist.
