The SDRA is inviting volunteers (i.e., Parks Commission, Trans Canada Trail data collectors, and SWAC, APC and Society members) to a Saltair Celebration of Volunteers and Canada 150 that will take place from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on Sunday, June 25, 2017 at the Saltair Community Centre. The SDRA is sponsoring this event using Area G Grant in Aid funds are from Area G taxpayers funding. Here is a quote from the May 24, 2017 CVRD Board meeting. “3. That a Grant-in-Aid, Electoral Area G – Saltair/Gulf Islands, in the amount of $250 be provided to Saltair Ratepayers Association to support an appreciation event for the Saltair Cycling Group and 150 Quilters and Take 5 advertising.”
Comment: My wife and I were happy to count pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. We would far rather see the $250 spent on the trail!
