…and Pete’s Bench
Family, friends and FOSS Directors met in Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park to celebrate the life of Pete Spencer – a former Board member and beloved individual in our community, who passed away suddenly last fall. Everyone gathered at Pete’s Bench, above Pete’s Bridge, which were constructed by the FOSS Trail Maintenance Crew to honour his memory and his legacy. Wonderful stories were shared, all of which described the essence of this very special man. We’re pretty sure Pete was there too – flying overhead on the wings of a pileated woodpecker who was there during the building of the bridge and on another occasion with a family member. Thank you, Pete, for being such a special part of our lives……
