 We had a good turn out to the AGM, held 17th. November.  

 

 Presidents Report

          The President commented that the Monday crew was still spending a lot of time on recycling but he emphasized that the need for funds was ongoing. He gave us a brief history of the wheel problems on #98 to show were the money was going.(Note - $12,000.00 so far)

 He thanked the West Van. Community Grant for there $1,500.00 grant. Fire chief Cook has been very helpful: re road getting paved etc. He mentioned that the new mayor has made some critical comments about large FD budget. Also the new public safety building has been put on hold; maybe permanently. Possible rebuilding of present #1 Fire Station, we are keeping watch with the hope of getting a small space for display.
