SUN PEAKS HEALTH CENTRE FUNDRAISER
Thanks to all those who have donated.
The Sun Peaks Health Centre has the roof on and is now waterproof and the interior work continues. The building is on schedule for an October opening. We are well on the way to meeting our $400,000 fundraising goal to be sure the facility has the necessary medical equipment.

Message from the Mayor
Wow, what a winter! We just witnessed one of the best ski seasons in the past 20 years and with more than 390,000 skier-visits, it was our busiest ski season ever. Lots of snow, a late spring season, steady crowds, super powder and an energy level that we have never seen before, exciting!!
This summer, we have a number of important Municipal projects planned. We will finish the Burfield to Village trail that has made it much safer to walk to and from the Burfield area. We will add some more lights and making sure that the drainage works year round as well as some more crush will be placed on the surface. We still have landscaping work around the new rink to complete. Most importantly, the Health Centre is moving forward and we will be ready to open the facilities by mid-October. New paving for the main road through the village area this summer. Pending resident approval, we will assume ownership of the water and waste water systems this summer and will spend $2.5 million dollar on expansions and new facilities. This will be the community’s busiest summer ever.
We are very close to reaching our fundraising objectives for the new Health Centre. We have $364,223 committed already so we are getting very very close. We can hardly wait to show off this new facility. The new facility will be ready on time and mostly on budget. We have a few doctors who are interested in being part of the team and are now finalizing commitments. By July, we should have a Health Centre administrator on board. What a community, there are many large communities in BC that couldn’t raise this kind of money through community donations. Thank you for your donations.
We have some exciting new shows for the summer - 54.40 July 1st and Trooper August 26th.
Sun Peaks is an exciting place to live year round. As your Mayor, I have enjoyed the journey and watching the community change is very rewarding. Looking forward, I am even more excited to see the new projects underway, the rising real estate values and positive community attitude. Looks like the bases are loaded and we are swinging for the fences.
Thank you all for making Sun Peaks such a neat spot and great community.
