Message from the mayorPosted: December 25, 2011
As we celebrate this holiday season the festivity should include appreciation of the prosperity and blessings that we appreciate here in Fernie. Christmas is a time of sharing and caring for one another. A time for giving and receiving and a time for reaching out the hand of friendship and reconciliation to everyone we know.
The past two months have been extremely busy for me personally but during this time I have met many people who have extended considerable encouragement and generosity of spirit towards me. Thank you all for the considerate and friendly support shown to me.
I am deeply honoured to be the new mayor of Fernie and I can assure you that I will work hard to earn the respect of the entire community so that a positive and lasting contribution can be made to our town.
I’m looking forward to working with all members of our community and most importantly to promote inclusiveness in the promotion of our town. I have always been impressed by the many volunteer organizations in our community and want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one for all the work that you do to make this town the best place to live.
I’d like to extend a special welcome to visitors coming home to Fernie to be with families and friends and want to wish you a wonderful time while you are here.
Best Wishes for a speedy recovery to those in hospital or sick at home. Greetings and Best Wishes go to residents of Tom Uphill Manor, Trinity Lodge, Rocky Mountain Village, New Horizons, Chrysalis House and Veneto Place.
This time of the year often brings loss of family members to some residents, for those feeling this sadness at this time please be assured that we have you on our hearts and minds and our wish for you is that the Love of God encompasses you with much Peace and understanding.
For our citizens travelling out of town please take extra care on the roads and drive safely with leagues of angels to guide you on your way.
From the family that is city council and staff, we wish your family all the Love and Blessings of the season, a safe, peaceful and joyful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
