On April 28th, 2010, Premier Gordon Campbell honoured forty-five outstanding British Columbians for their contributions to their communities. The district is very proud to announce that Trustee Alan Chell was among the recipients. He was recognized as an outstanding leader, facilitator, motivator and volunteer in the City of Revelstoke. He is photographed here with his very proud grandson and Premier Gordon Campbell.
Fold and Unfold Program
Students helped fold hundreds of paper cranes to be used in a ceremony to commenorate the lives lost in the 1910 Rogers Pass avalanche. With the help of the schools and community groups, more than 10,000 colourful paper cranes were displayed in the plaza on March 4th, 2010. It was a very beautiful and moving ceremony. A big thank you to the RSS Leadership Class for helping to teach the elementary students and seniors how to fold the cranes and also to Connor Hale and Ewan Urquart for the amazing work they did with the animation! Thank you to Parks Canada and the 1910 Rogers Pass Snow Slide organizing committee for their efforts and these photos.
