Community Spotlight on Wayne Rose & Allisha Ke
Community Spotlight on Wayne Rose and Allisha Ke
This afternoon the group hosted a free barbeque for the community of Brigus which acted not only as a way to meet with local residents, but as a means of getting feedback on our design from those who will be most influenced by our trail intervention. Among many guests was Wayne Rose, who acts as Brigus’s Town Clerk and Manager. Thus far he has been essential in connecting us with all members of the community, most importantly Matt and Shane, employees of Brigus City Works who intend to help us through construction this week. One of the biggest advocates for the development of the lighthouse trail, Wayne is undoubtely excited to see the final outcome of our project.
Another employee of Town Council Allisha Ke, the Recreational Coordinator for the town of Brigus has been particularly helpful in setting up opportunities for us to engage with the community in such a short period of time. Though new to her role, she has become another well integrated facet of the community, working with both the Seniors Healthy Living Program and numerous others which surround youth engagement.
