SIFCo gets 25 year License! Come Celebrate with us!

On December 11, 2011, SIFCo achieved a milestone is its evolution as a company by being awarded a 25-year license. This allows us to finally be able to plan long term as a company.

Come celebrate with us on Sunday, February 12!

We are hosting a free, family-oriented Winter Celebration day at the Valley View Golf Club in Appledale in the Slocan Valley. We would like to invite you to this event to celebrate the 25-year tenure SIFCo has just been granted, to manage over 35,000 acres of land here in the Slocan Valley.

In partnership with the Slocan Valley Recreation Commission and Rails to Trails, we will have a cross-country ski track set, as well as snowshoes available for your use. Between 1-2pm you can test your speed and grace on your skies or snowshoes compared with your neighbours in a short timed-start competition. The rest of the afternoon the track will be open for everyone’s use. A silent auction will be held indoors with a chance to win a custom concrete bench, generously donated by Molded Stone of Winlaw.

For kids we will have a shorter timed race on skies starting at 12:30, a small scavenger hunt on the property starting at 2pm, and tobogganing. Inside the club house there will be several interactive stations set up for children of different ages where everyone can learn about the forest landscape we live in.

We will also have free hot chocolate and a bonfire all afternoon. At 3pm inside the clubhouse, there will be short welcome speech and free cake to celebrate our tenure! The Valley View clubhouse kitchen will be open all day until 6:30pm.

So do come celebrate with us! After eight years of work, we have reached a major milestone towards community control of our watersheds and sustainable logging practices. Something certainly worth celebrating!
