This past summer Roberts Creek resident John Phare lost his life while fighting the Sechelt Mine Fire. His sacrifice has been recognized by his becoming the first ever recipient of the province’s Medal of Good Citizenship. “Good citizenship” takes many forms, and means different things to different people, but it seems somehow both fitting and a great sad honour to have a Creeker be chosen from over 190 worthy nominees.
Our community will always be able to point towards John’s example of service to the greater good.
