LETTER: Congratulations to Barry Neufeld on his Community Hero Award

‘We’re blessed to have such a community here in Chilliwack’

I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to Barry Neufeld on receiving a Community Hero Award. I’ve spoken with him in person before and came out of those conversations with the impression that he really cares about the citizens of Chilliwack. I would also like to thank Mark Strahl for his work presenting the awards to every person who was nominated, regardless of what others might think. Congratulations also go to over 100 other people and organizations who were also nominated and received awards. We’re blessed to have such a community here in Chilliwack.

Valerie Flokstra
