Letter – This is not a swan song

Letter from the May 28, 2014 Grand Forks Gazette from GFREC head.

Thank you to the communities of Grand Forks and district for supporting GFREC during my tenure as director of recreation and facilities. I leave this position in July after 21 years of public service with no regrets. To all my staff, past and present, I say it has been and honour and a pleasure to work with you. You are GFREC and the ideals it represents. To the citizens of our service area, Grand Forks, Area C and Area D, you have embraced the endless benefits of recreation. You have enriched your lives with an active living lifestyle and you continue to improve the health of our Boundary Country community. Grand Forks is now my home and I will continue to enjoy the wonders of our natural environment in my retirement. John Mackey,Grand Forks
