Former Vanderhoof councillor Jack French has been recognized for his long-term services by the Union of BC municipalities. He was given a plaque at the Monday, Nov. 24 council meeting in honour of spending 25 years as councillor with the District of Vanderhoof from 1984-1999 and 2000-2011.

“We appreciate your commitment to the community,” said Vanderhoof mayor Gerry Thiessen, at Monday’s meeting. “I believe it is recorded that you attended upwards of 623 council meetings.”

“We’ll name a sidewalk after you Jack,” joked councillor Brian Frenkel.

“Please don’t,” replied Mr. French with a smile, “But no, it’s been a pleasure and I’m glad things are still carrying on in good spirit.”
