Langley did fantastic job with BC Seniors Games

Langley’s new motto should be “The impossible we do immediately, miracles take a little longer.”

Editor: I want to thank the City and Township of Langley for the excellent job they did in hosting the recent BC Seniors Games.

Congratulations in particular go to the organizing committee for doing an excellent job in making these Games such a successful and memorable event. This was my first Seniors Games as a participant, and I was really impressed by the organization, the facilities, the preparation, the scheduling and, in particular, the hospitality that we received during our stay.

A huge “thank you” to the organizing committee and volunteers. A special thank you to Ross and his merry band of helpers who managed to co-ordinate almost 600 games of pickleball  in less than five days.

I think Langley’s new motto should be “The impossible we do immediately, miracles take a little longer.”

As a participant, it was great to meet new friends, exchange information, and build relationships.

Thank you very much for the opportunity and congratulations on a job well done.

Shay McAuley,

the Kootenays
