Summer is here.
It’s a chance to shift gears.
And also, to take a pause and reflect on our work of the spring.
These past three months, we’ve shared posts calling out local events and news for 36 different local organizations, including Village of Pemberton, SLRD, Lil’wat Nation, the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, Signal Hill PAC, the Pemberton & District Library, Pemberton & District Chamber, Pemberton Farmers Market, Tourism Pemberton, the Economic Development Collaborative, BMX, PORCA, Whistler Learning Centre, Blackwater Creek Elementary, Pemberton Multicultural Network, Friends of the Library, Sea to Ski Invasive Species, Lil’wat Employment and Training, Whistler Arts Council, Southern Stl’atl’imx Health Society’s Kindness Pledge. Reminders were shared about Joffre Lakes use survey and the VoP/SLRD/Lil’wat Evacuation Plan survey.
We try to make this channel one that supports and builds community.
