I have had the privilege of experiencing life “Okanagan Way” for the past 27 years. I have been an active member of our Lake Country Soccer Society and along with many dedicated volunteers, we are most proud of developing Beasley Park.
Teaching at GESS for the past 27 years has given me valuable insight into the lives of so many of our community members. Many of these individuals have given generously of their time to make our community a better place. I look forward to my retirement from teaching in June of 2015, where I can focus on many of the exciting community projects planned for the next 4 years.
These include plans for developing Pelmewash Parkway and generating increased economic stimulus for our Main Street. In 2015, Lake Country celebrates its 20th anniversary as a municipality. We look forward to the installation of two new welcome signs positioned at the north and south ends of Lake Country, and a new public art fixture in our community that will acknowledge this celebration. I will continue to make Parks and Recreation one of my priorities by supporting our Parks Master Plan, Okanagan Rail Corridor, as well as continuing to improve accessibility for all residents along the Okanagan Center Linear Park and many trail networks with help from our WALC volunteers.
Over the past three years it was my mandate to engage our youth in our community. My environmental class helped create a new community garden at the Boys and Girls club, supported the Food Assistance Society and the Oceola Fish and Game Club. The youth were very active in the development of our Integrated Community Sustainability Plan, along with the Pelmewash Parkway preliminary design workshops. I am committed to engaging our youth in Lake Country as well as encouraging community involvement as a whole. Working together we can continue to enhance our municipality.
