I would like to add to your October 4 story on Robert Burritt (Burritt receives Queen’s Jubilee medal). In addition to the Fraternal Order of Eagles and the Sparwood Futures Society Bob is also a founding member of the Elk Valley Seniors Housing Society in Sparwood. Bob was part of the Steering Committee that put through a proposal to BC Housing for the development of Seniors Supportive Housing in Sparwood. The efforts of those devoted people brought Lilac Terrace to our community. Bob has been on the Board of Directors for the past 12 years, 10 of which have been as President. On behalf of your fellow board members, thank you Bob for your leadership and never ending dedication to Lilac Terrace.
Recognition of Bob’s service to his community is long overdue and it was wonderful to see this very humble person honoured this way. Congratulations Bob, you deserve this!
