Dear editor,

On Oct. 10, Courtenay Mayor Larry Jangula and his council hosted their Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at the Florence Filberg Centre.

My name is Gerald Heron and I am a Broombuster volunteer.

All Broombusters appreciated this gesture and all the support we received from our community, and this includes all the appreciative honks from passing motorists. We thank you all for cheering us on.

We are a group led by Bev Agur, who regrettably was unable to attend the volunteer dinner.

We would be remiss if we did not make a sincere and honourable mention of her leadership and dedication to this cause. Bev was there every day, with tools and refreshments and with good spirits, rain or shine, and she led by example with her hard labour and tireless efforts.

Bev welcomed all volunteers and we also would like to encourage any and all members of our community to consider volunteering some of their spare time (even if it is for only one day from 8:30 a.m. to noon) to this worthy cause.

A lot more can be accomplished with a brigade-size volunteer force. It is great exercise, lots of fresh air, and a true team spirit.

We will all be out in force next spring and will look forward to improving our community for everyone’s benefit.

Once again, a big thank you to our mayor and our community.

G.P. Heron,

Comox Valley
