Merry Christmas and best wishes

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is already here and a new year is just around the corner!

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is already here and a new year is just around the corner! It seems as though 2012 has gone by so quickly, but as it begins to wind down, I’d like to take a moment and thank you all for the wonderful memories we’ve shared this year.

Throughout the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to participate in so many wonderful events and to meet with many great people in our riding.

I had the chance to welcome Government Caucus to 108 Mile House, and also enjoyed the visits by Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Bill Bennett, and Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Steve Thomson.

I also had the opportunity to work with the Timber Supply Committee, and to open the DriveABLE service here in Williams Lake.

I also very much enjoyed the Kids Running For Kids event, raising money for the BC Children’s Hospital and helping local kids, and speaking with many local organizations. One part of the job I love most is sharing the good news with local organizations that they will be receiving funding through the Community Gaming Grant program.

I am so grateful to have had the chance to do all this, but most of all, I am grateful to have had the chance to meet so many of you.

Speaking with constituents is my favourite part of the job, and this year I’ve had the chance to meet so many wonderful people while out and about in the riding.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and I look forward to continuing to serve you next year.

Together, we can work to make the coming year our best one yet.

Merry Christmas, and best wishes for 2013!

Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin.
