The Tletinqox Government is proud to announce West Fraser Mills as a silver sponsor for the 40th Annual B.C. Elders Gathering, in Williams Lake from July 11-14 with a donation of $5,000.
On hand to accept payment, Tletinqox Government events co-ordinator and sponsorship chair for the event, Darwin Stump, said: “It is great to see a company we do business with give back to the community of Tletinqox Government, and I would like to see even more companies, as well, do the same, that we do business with throughout the past years, because this Elders Gathering is a once in a lifetime event, and Williams Lake will not see it for years ahead yet.
“I also want to add, as a reminder to all local businesses in Williams Lake the Elders Gathering is around the corner. This huge event will drop more than a million dollars or even up to $2 million, in the short time we are here, so be prepared, stock up on your supplies and food in restaurants and grocery stores, because not all elders will use the services we are providing, and they will venture out and explore Williams Lake.
“I want to thank the senior staff at West Fraser Mills for their donation and commitment to support Tletinqox Government to host the 40th Annual B.C. Elders Gathering.”
David Walgren and Jordan Townsend are general managers at West Fraser Mills and, along with woods manager Mark Runge, they all expressed their same appreciation for Tletinqox Government to host the event and understand the positive impact the gathering will have in Williams Lake.
Additionally, they all stated the same message: they want to contribute to that success and look forward to the event, and wish all our Elders a safe journey to the city of Williams Lake.
