Council gives thumbs up to Hope’s Brigade Days

Everyone from Coun. Donna Kropp to Coun. Gerry Dyble gave their thanks and thumbs up.

District of Hope council thanked Coun. Dusty Smith for his contributions to Brigade Days as president and also noted the success of this year’s Brigade Days at Monday’s council meeting.

Coun. Gerry Dyble said her brother from Alberta, who was headed to the United States, stayed in Hope because he heard Chilliwack was playing in the concert.

Coun. Bob Erickson said he noticed how busy Hope was.

“On Saturday, I went for a walk around town, and I was really surprised how busy it was,” said Erickson.

Coun. Smith noted that Brigade Days was very successful.

Coun. Smith said the new parking on Kawakawa Lake Road was successful, although he received complaints from “a couple of local people” because the parking lot forced them to detour.

Coun. Erickson thought the Kawakawa Lake parking was “ingenious.”

“I was going to talk about stepping down as president, but I think I’m going to keep my reins going there,” said Coun. Smith.
