Thanks from Griz Days committee

Thank you letter to all who helped in Griz Days from Sarah Parry.

Griz Days 2012 – the highlight this year has to be the generosity of our sponsors, volunteers and committee members. As a small community we reach out to people to take part, offer valuable personal hours and a passion to work together for the good of our community. The support has been overwhelming and we the Chamber could not have hosted such a great event without everyone – thank you.

Your support is not something we the Chamber take for granted and it is very much appreciated by everyone.

I would personally like to thank the Griz Days committee; Rachael Bone, Sharon Switzer, Will Barbour, Mike Sosnowski, Dave Harrington, Dave Hamilton, Jeni Sugiyama, Steve Ruskay, Adam Laurin, Mark Brown and Ben Mangoe – this event could not have happened without each and every one of you.

Specials thanks go to The Rotary Club, Freshies, The Rod and Gun Club and Big Bang Bagels.

Sarah Parry

Manager, Chamber of Commerce, Fernie
