The Horsefly Seniors Activity and Wellness Society have finally achieved total accessibility.

The society completed work on a  ramp at the entrance to their activity centre next to the new Fire Hall recently.

Funded by the B.C. Rehabilitation Foundation and the Truck Loggers Association, the ramp and roof were constructed under the supervision of Hugh Barrett who was ably assisted by Jim Farquharson and Jack Biggs; all volunteer labour as well as all seniors themselves.

Those of us who have mobility issues are truly grateful.

Another job well done, and once again Horsefly is probably the only completely accessible community.
