Volunteers, partners made games a success

Over 3,000 volunteers signed up to give their time and energy for the BC Summer Games in Surrey.

The success of the recent Surrey 2012 BC Summer Games would not have been possible without the assistance of many people and organizations.

I want to say a huge thank you firstly to the B.C. Games Society, Mayor Dianne Watts and her council, city staff and School District #36 for their invaluable assistance.

Also, to the corporate and funding partners and friends of the games for their generous contributions.

Secondly, to my co-chair, Linda Hepner, my board of directors and their committee chairs, thank you for the time and energy you put in over the past 18 months to ensure these games were successful.

Over 3,000 volunteers signed up to give their time and energy to help make these games a success.

Your enthusiasm and pride of community ensured that the athletes, coaches and officials had a memorable time in our city.

We could not have done it without you. Thank you all for being part of the team.
