There were a number of Islanders who came out for every work weekend and to give a helping hand during the week, just to keep up with the amount of debris being hauled out of properties. Special thanks to the dedicated regulars who made the project work.
The volunteer hours haven't been tabulated yet, but they are phenomenal. Kudos Piers Island for jumping into the FireSmart program.
Thank you so much for organizing this enormous worthwhile project. I am still at it and my roadside outside the fence looks a whole lot better thanks to the marvelous work crew and to Jacquie T for organizing that part of the process!!! Mary and Bill
"Yes a very big Thank You to the folks who made this happen. Your dedication, combined with laughter,sweat and back-breaking labor resulted in a safer community."
With gratitude from Pat G
"Thanks to all who organized and did all this hard work.Much appreciated."
" And I second Laura's message. A huge thank you to the chipping crew who showed up in every zone - sometimes for a "repeat chipping" in a zone when necessary. :)
That was a lot of hard, dirty, and dangerous work. Thank you for using safe practices and making the Fire Smart initiative such a success."
We both second this. We appreciated the hard work done on our property while we were away which proved to be a challenge in more ways than one.
And for Jacquie T to come back to finish the job!
Michael and Manon
