Ladysmith Town Councillor Tricia McKay and Stz’uminus First Nation Councillor Tim Harris were among the volunteers who came out over the weekend to help Ladysmith Festival of Lights take down the remaining installations.
On a Saturday in January, members of FOL, with the assistance of RKM Cranes, removed the starburst on top of the Chuck Perrin Memorial Tree at the Aggie Hall, as well as the cup decoration on top of the local Tim Hortons restaurant.
On Sunday morning a group of Festival volunteers, along with volunteers from BC Hydro (Reid and Brian Benjamin, Mike Seery and Brian Gueldenstern. Missing is Chad Forsberg) and Milestones Contracting (Bradley OIson) were able to take down all the rest of the decorations from the 2020 Light Up. The Hydro volunteers brought three bucket trucks and Milestones supplied a truck and volunteer, with a trailer supplied by Xtend Rentals. With the weather working in their favour, all the volunteers got the work done in record time.
Thank you to all the volunteers for your time in helping to make this important community event happen every year.
