HEROES : What you can do? Become an Everyday Hero.
Our club is fueled by our members. We enjoy the fruits of the hard work and planning of the members that came before us.
We must serve the needs of today and give a legacy to the future members.
Work parties– come and join the fun and toil.
We call work parties when we have a few small projects or a couple of big projects.
There is always a selection of jobs suited to everyone’s talents or abilities.
Independent – See something, Do something.
If you see some project that needs doing…
Lawn moving, trimming, painting, cleaning, repair.

Your Legacy Gift:
A Legacy Gift is an opportunity to express, personnel values, be true to your traditions, and to show your love of nature and the environment.
Leaving a bequest to is a big moment, it’s a very significant and meaningful event in life.
Just imagine, what impact a Legacy Gift can have today and into the future for generations to come.
A bequest is a profoundly meaningful expression of one’s humanity. It’s a spiritual extension of love to a future that one will not see.
A Legacy Gift is an epilogue to the story of a life – and it needs to be consistent with your values and beliefs.

IN MEMORIAM :
Any family or friends that would like their loved ones added, please contact the President.
James “Sandy” Dunlop: Sandy was thoughtful and generous, in his devotion to family, friends, and community. Whenever we needed help and expertise, we knew we could always count on him. We feel lucky to have known Sandy and can say with confidence that he touched the lives of so many people. We will all cherish the memories that we have of Sandy. His kindness and teaching at the Trap range, helped many new members and improved the skills of established members.
Jack Fonck: Jack’s passion was clay target shooting and his longtime membership in The Cowichan Valley Trap & Skeet Club, and Cowichan Fish and Game. He was president of the CVTSC for many years and was always available for his share of the work parties and events they undertook. He made many wonderful friends within the shooting community. Jack is missed by the members of CF&GA, he was a true friend. Jack was a heavy duty mechanic for his entire career and beyond, helping others to fix and create projects that would be challenging and satisfying.
William “Dallas” Vaux: Dallas was a member of the Koksilah School Historical Society, serving as vice-president for twenty-seven years. He was among the group of adult past students responsible for fund raising and rebuilding the old one room school to its original state as built in 1911. For many years, Dallas was also a very active member of the CF&GA Club in Glenora. He spent countless volunteer hours, working on community enhancement projects. In 1990 he was very proud to be presented with an Honorary Lifetime Membership.
