I want to talk about those who are actually making the maintenance department tick this summer. I am surrounded by great talent both old and new, both staff and volunteer.
The staff of your maintenance department this season is small but mighty and you could say mighty small. Excluding me, we have a staff of two; Robert, my longstanding part-timer and our new staffer, Bryan McDonald, who is our only full time person. You all know Robert well for his hard work and dedication to this site, but Bryan may be a lesser known commodity to most.
It has been a very rough winter. Did I mention it has been a very tough winter? How tough was it you may ask? Don’t even get me started! I pushed more snow than the Columbia Ice field, snow was so deep the tractor we use to clear it got stuck, frost heaves, ice dams, snow blindness, flooding, metal fatigue, seasonal illness, frost bite and frozen water mains. Like I said …..
A man with the seat ripped out of his jeans, cussing like a longshoreman was face to face with a withered up dead raccoon while he crawled on his belly under the Print Shop. Murray works hard because it is difficult work moving buildings, and this little building proved more difficult than most.
