Letter: Sooke’s Community Spirit

Letters to the editor show how our community is made up of a variety of personalities that live in this wonderful place we call home.

Over the years, working together created community pride, as shown by our community association All Sooke Day, which raised funding for the community hall and sports fields. We now need to improve areas of sports including a Bike Skills Park. This park, as pointed out by Ellen Lewers, has a good start so let’s go with that, as it has all the benefits at a reasonable price at a good location.

It is very important to make the best decisions to spend wisely, not just for now but for future generations. Sooke is growing, as we should, to be able to have employment here in Sooke giving priority to our youth.   We can keep our volunteer base growing by making newcomers feel welcome so they will see what community spirit is and will want to become a part of it.

Martha Moore,

Sooke
