Members of the Cache Creek, Ashcroft, and Loon Lake Volunteer Fire Departments were at the Cache Creek fire hall on February 6, where they were met by representatives of the Ashcroft and District Lions Club.
In October 2017, the local Lions presented the three departments with $12,000 each, raised by Lions clubs in Alberta, the Chilliwack area, Logan Lake, and the Ashcroft and District Club. The fundraising was organized and coordinated by the Mt. Cheam Lions Club in Chilliwack, and the club subsequently received further donations from Lions clubs in Alberta.
The funds were forwarded to the Ashcroft club, and on February 6 president Darlene Daily presented the three fire departments with a further $2,100 each, in recognition of their tireless efforts during last year’s floods and wildfires.
