Community bonfire a hit

By Debbie Dundass, President, AMCS

The Holiday Bonfire was a roaring success and Mother Nature provided brilliant sunshine and warmth all afternoon.

How wonderful for the approximately 50 neighbours who made their way to the Jamie Soule Memorial Park to enjoy time with friends, roast a hot dog or sip a beverage. Two fires were built for mingling and the children played nearby sledding, throwing snowballs, and then enjoyed hot chocolate.

Thanks to the incredible help from community volunteers Richard, Ron and Ryan from Sasquatch, who cleared the snow which was a formidable task considering how wet and sloppy it was out. Also, much appreciation to the fire starting crew of Rudy, Steve and Gerry who all arrived early to get the fires lit. .

From this event, it is clear that folks want to get out and socialize!

The comments received from community input at the AGM will help guide further development of 2023 events and activities.

Wishing each and everyone a…..

Happy New Year!!!

Holiday Bonfire a go!

Hope to see you Wednesday, December 28th at noon at the Jamie Soule Memorial Park at 105 Sasquatch Trail.

The Holiday Bonfire will be a great way to enjoy some time with friends and neighbours, old and new.

Today, Ron and Richard from Sasquatch are out clearing the snow at the park, and the Wednesday weather forecast looks great!

Pack a lunch, roast a smokie, bring a leftover turkey sandwich….whatever your heart desires. Bring a folding chair if you like.

Snow will be cleared near the street and mailbox area – this is the best place to park if you are driving in.

AMFD Potluck celebrations

By all accounts, the AMFD Potluck 2022 was a fantastic event! The company was great and the food was incredible. We sure know how to celebrate and have fun, don’t we?

If you missed the potluck, no worries. We have recaptured the moments in a video collage of the evening (click on photo below).

Special thanks to the community volunteers who helped with decorating, food service and clean up afterwards. Your assistance was greatly appreciated!

It was a fun event where neighbours gathered, shared food and had a wonderful evening enjoying all that is good on the Mountain!

AMFD showcased their recruits who became firefighters after intense training over the past year, and two officers were promoted. Chief Urs Grob gave an overview of the fire department’s services provided over the past year which included a variety of calls.

Thanks was given to the community for supporting Anarchist Mountain Fire Rescue Society (AMFRS) which funds specialized programs, training and equipment to AMFD for specialized programs like medical response, technical rescue and fire prevention.

The evening finished off with the quilt draw selling out 500 tickets! Two beautiful handmade quilts raised almost $2000 in funds raised for the AMFRS – many thanks to the Anarchist Mountain Quilters who donated 350 hours of their time, along with seed money for supplies from Neighbourhood Small Grants, to make this possible.

That is the spirit of our community – coming together, laughing, sharing and celebrating!

Happy Holidays from AMFD, AMFRS & AMCS!

You don’t want to miss this!

Bring something warm to drink, and perhaps some hotdogs, as we gather around the bonfires at Jamie Soule Memorial Park.

Snow will be cleared and wood will be brought in so that once again we can spend some time catching up with neighbours and having a few laughs.

Please park below, closer to the mailboxes on Sasquatch Trail and walk on up.

Although the forecast is looking favourable, if the temperatures are too cold we will let you know Tuesday morning if the event will be postponed.

Any questions? Want to help get the park ready? Contact Debbie at president@amcsbc.ca

Holiday Bonfire

Join your neighbours for a Holiday Bonfire!

When: Wednesday, December 28 at Noon 

Where: Jamie Soule Memorial Park – 105 Sasquatch Trail

Bring a mug of something hot and maybe a few smokies to BBQ over the fire. 

If you wish, bring something to share – totally up to you!

The event will be dependent upon weather – but we are pretty tough stock on the mountain, right?

A few days prior to the event, heavy duty snow removal will be done. Then, on Dec.27th we will be in need of a few residents to finish clearing the snow with quads and muscle power. 

We could really use some volunteers to help us, so please consider donating a couple hours of your time.

For information and to offer your assistance please contact: president@amcsbc.ca

Helpers still needed for potluck

Extra hands still required for Sunday’s potluck! With more people involved, it won’t take long.
