We had our third and well attended Community Bonfire this past Saturday. The weather was a nice +4C and sunny – the move to later in February was a good choice.
First, thanks go to community event organizers Jim Cocks and Bill Baggs. They set it up and did most of the work.
Thanks to Bushtukah for their tent and support,
Bridgehead on McRae provided coffee and supplies once again,
and thanks to Councillor Jeff Leiper for the s’mores ingredients,
fire permits and putting up with questions about the LRT and other issues of the day.
A big thank you as well to all who brought their Christmas trees down to the park after their holiday. Some were cut into smaller pieces and burned. But we had to stop to let people toast marshmallows, so we didn’t use all of the trees. The remainder will be mulched and used in the surrounding forests.
Looks like the effort was well worth it and tasty.
