Truck loggers helping Habitat with pancake breakfast

The Truck Loggers' Association is hosting a forestry equipment show and a public pancake breakfast at Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community.

New this year, the Truck Loggers’ Association is hosting a forestry equipment show and a public pancake breakfast, sponsored by Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community.

The event will take place this Saturday in Courtenay at Crown Isle from 9 a.m. to noon — the day after the TLA’s annual golf tournament.

“This is the first time we have held an event like this,” said Dwight Yochim, TLA executive director. “We look forward to talking to the public about our industry, the equipment we use and the career opportunities there are.”

This will be a great opportunity for people living in Courtenay and surrounding communities to get up close to the trucks and machines that are the backbone of B.C.’s rural communities and forest industry.

Proceeds from the event will support Habitat for Humanity.

The TLA represents 435 independent forest contractors and their suppliers operating on the B.C. coast. The membership supports over 15,000 workers and, along with other independent contractors, accounts for close to 90 per cent of the trees harvested on the coast.
