Hospital Auxiliary recognizes Wells Gray Community Forest

DHMH Auxiliary expresses appreciation to Wells Gray Community Forest for help with its roof

In March, 2012, Dr Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary applied to Wells Gray Community Forest (2010) Society for a grant to help with the funding for reroofing the Thrift Shop building in Vavenby.

WGCF Society committed to paying for half the cost of the roof. This was a tremendous help, as without this funding the project would not have gone ahead.

A local contractor was hired and the project was done in a timely manner (as soon as the June rains stopped). What a difference the new roof makes to the entire look of the shop.

 

The Hospital Auxiliary thanks the society for the ease of the application process as well as for the funds that made the new roof a reality. A plaque recognizing the contribution of the Wells Gray Community Forest Society is attached to the building in permanent recognition.
