Volunteers did an excellent job of “weekend of the century”

I would like the opportunity to express my personal sincere thank you to yourself and all the people on the Centennial committee.

Dear Editor,

I would like the opportunity to express my personal sincere thank you to yourself and all the people on the Centennial committee.

Steve, I cannot comprehend the hundreds of hours you and your staff put in to produce the “Centennial Edition”.

This paper is so very well done, with facts and information of the forming of our beautiful hometown of Sylvan Lake.

The names of our forefathers brought back many fond memories. I was fortunate, as a youngster, to know many of them, and such a fine group of people.

They too would have been very pleased and proud of the Sylvan Lake News and of all of the members of the Centennial committee. You have carried on their tradition of volunteering.

The Centennial committee, chaired by Brenda Dale, can be so proud of the 100th anniversary party. I cannot think of anything they could have done to improve on “the weekend of the century”.

To the hundreds of other volunteers that were involved, stand proudly — without you people we would not have a Sylvan Lake.

In the past century there have been so many changes. Some very good, some not so good. But the one thing that has remained constant for 100 years is the willingness of our volunteers.

You are the lifeblood of our great town.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

With deepest respect for everyone involved.

God bless Sylvan Lake for another 100 years.

Dale Mannix,

Sylvan Lake
