A good cause for a one of Alberni’s good guys

A celebration of achievement is being held for Log Train Trail advocate Frank Stini on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

To the editor,

On Oct. 18 there will be a celebration of Frank Stini’s retirement.

This is an opportunity for our community to celebrate the many years of commitment and hard work that Frank has given in regard to the Log Train Trail.

Frank had the vision, the motivation, the energy, the know how, the love of the out doors and the leadership ability to create and develop the Log Train Trail.

The trail is a great accomplishment for our community. It has been part of the inspiration for the magnificent system of trails that we are now developing.

It is the basis for a vast network of outdoor activities which will serve both our community and our visitors for many years to come.

Please come out and celebrate Frank’s leadership in our community from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Pacific Rim Room at Chances Rim Rock.

The $15 cover includes appies as well as coffee and tea. A no-host bar will be available.

If you have any pictures of your experiences on the trail which you would like to have included in a slide show at the celebration, please send them to djmayba@telus.net.

John Mayba,

Port Alberni
