Hansen’s leadership provided network of trails

Last week the Summerland Trans Canada Trail Society elected a new board of directors and executive.

Dear Editor

Last week the Summerland Trans Canada Trail Society elected a new board of directors and executive.

Marilyn Hansen stepped down from her position as president after 12 years.

Under her guidance and leadership the STCT has provided our community with an excellent trail system which runs along Conkle Mountain, on to Thirsk Lake and beyond.

Her unwavering commitment and fierce dedication to the society and its goals have provided our community with a recreational treasure.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of cycling the local trails (KVR and TCT) many times and marvel at the accessibility and excellent condition of these routes.

On behalf of the new board and executive, we would like to pay tribute to the many accomplishments of Marilyn Hansen and the Summerland Trans Canada Trail Society.

We would also like to say thank you to those members of the community who have helped support Marilyn in her quest to develop a user friendly, well-traveled, non-motorized local trail system for all to enjoy.

Marilyn will remain on the board as past president and director but hopes to finally have some time to “smell the roses” (literally, since her garden is amazing.)

Angela Sielmann, Director
