A new Work BC employment centre was officially opened Wednesday, June 13.

Arrow and Slocan Lakes Community Services Executive Director Tim Payne prefaced the ribbon cutting ceremony with a short speech.

“The seeds were set for this event long before I came along,” he said, adding that he appreciated being able to be here for the new program.

Payne praised the Work BC program’s ability to help identify people’s true strengths, recognizing individuals’ differences and utilizing them in a positive manner. There was nothing but good words too for the team at ASLCS as well.

Chris Scarff brought a message from the Minister of Social Development, Stephanie Cadieux, congratulating the hardworking Nakusp team.

After that, mayor Hamling cut the ribbon and Payne got the burgers going on the barbeque. Good weather held and the hungry hordes happily helped themselves to hamburgers.
