Friday (October 23) was a special day at the WFN Community Garden as we turned over the keys to the garden shed and celebrated the successful completion of the Fortis ReNew Program with the students!

Although the day was unseasonably cold and snowy it didn’t dampen the spirits of all the people who attended the small celebration. All the students received their completion certificate and their other certificates earned during the 5-week program.

I would personally like to thank WIBCO Construction superintendent Bill Louie for his tireless efforts during the onsite training portion of the program and the people at Fortis, WFN and OTDC who initiated this great program. I would also like to thank all of the sponsors who provided us with materials and on site training for the participants.

WIBCO General Manager Paul Courtoreille had the great honour of turning the keys over to the Community Garden Coordinator and presenting the two Peter Olsen Memorial Awards to Selina Joe and Jordan Lindley.

The memories and friendships made during the program will never be forgotten. The Garden Shed itself will be a legacy that all the people involved will be able to take pride in knowing that they are a part of.

On behalf of WIBCO Construction, we wish the graduates from the program much success and all the best in their future endeavours!
