Comments from 2017 Snowshoe Tour:
Thank you so much for the wonderful guided tour of the Hollyburn community. You showed us such enthusiasm for the community, and you showed way-beyond-call hospitality when you fed us with warm drinks and food.  Letting us peek inside your homes would have been exceptional hospitality, but to feed us as well demonstrated the community spirit you were describing to us.

Sharon and Colin – you were terrific guides, your stories were great and your sense of community and of history reflected your love for the Hollyburn cabins.
Thanks for the opportunity. Til we meet again,
Anne George
