Thanks for the new Fletcher Street playground

I wish to take this time to thank all the wonderful people of the City of Chilliwack, parks, recreation and culture dept.

I wish to take this time to thank all the wonderful people of the City of Chilliwack, parks, recreation and culture dept. On the corner of Fletcher Street and Bole Ave. we now have a new playground for the kids, and my grandkids to play in. Over the last year I have talked via phone and e-mail to a very caring person who heads up the dept. by the name of Mr. Richard Fortin. He was always quick to respond to my emails and sent a proposal of how the playground will look. I and many others are very pleased with the addition of the playground in the park for the kids. And as such we will do our best to ensure the park is kept clean and safe for all children who choose to play there. I invite all parents with kids to come and enjoy the new playground.

A special thank-you to Mr. Richard Fortin and to all the others that made this possible.
