On a recent trip (October 3/4/5 – 15) Rob Sutherland and Bruce Weicker met with RCMSAR and Victoria Station folks to confirm that the Tolonen Fast Rescue Vessel will be transferred to Shuswap Station. The timing is dependent upon funding for a new vessel for the Victoria Station. We expect to hear about the funding status in November. Preliminary surveys have been conducted for modifications of the Tolonen for service in the Shuswap.
One of the first member of RCMSAR 106, Marvin Tansley (ID #106069), has announced his retirement from our Station. Marvin will always be remembered as a dedicated volunteer in service to others. His service was remarkable and an example for others. We say congratulations on his decision to serve his family and friends in other ways. We all know that he will be missed. His contributions over the years are much appreciated.
In retirement from RCMSAR 106, Marvin and his wife plan on moving to Kamloops to be closer to family and friends. We wish Marvin all the best in his new community.
