Regional District of Fraser-Fort George representative Kenna Jonkman (far left) and Administrative Lead for the recreation facilities in both McBride and Valemount, Wes Keim, (far right) presented three recreation centre staff members with recognition of years served. Marion Cousineau served five years at both the Robson Valley Recreation Centre and the Canoe Valley Recreation Centre and has now retired from her position. Loretta Simpson has served the RDFFG for 35 years in a variety of roles that also included time in both facilities. Rick Burnett has worked for 30 years at the McBride facility and he joked that it started as a part time job.
