We would also like to thank the committed members of the tennis club for holding a fundraising event that made this junior program possible. They raised several thousands dollars from the members at an auction. George and Rose Koenig donated a Spyder ski jacket and everyone who attended came with the thought of giving more than they were getting.

Finally we would like thank Bill Kunzweiler, John Konig, Garry Watson and the other members of the tennis committee for their time and dedication to the sport of tennis in Whistler and their tireless efforts in the ongoing discussions with the Holborn Group. We look forward with great anticipation to the construction, by the Holborn Group, of our new racquet facility.

Hosts making a difference

There has been a number of letters in the past few weeks concerning the treatment of guests in Whistler, most of which has been pretty negative. I would like to bring to the attention of your readers that a program exists here in Whistler whose only focus is on greeting and helping guests – it’s the Village Host Program.

Some of you may have seen us out there this winter (or past two summers) walking the Village Stroll helping guests, and the occasional local. This past winter the Village Host Team gave help, directions, listened to concerns etc to over 18,000 visitors. This number does not include the number of people that we just chatted to.

I suppose what I would like to say is, those of you who are concerned about the treatment of our guests instead of writing about it, stop by Millennium Place and talk to Cathie about doing something about it and volunteer. Just think about how many people we could talk to if there were more volunteers.
