The Illecillewaet Greenbelt Society is making a stroll along its paths a more comfortable experience with the addition this year of benches and new trail signs.
This past weekend Greenbelt Director and friend Ward Kemerer installed two simple cedar and stone benches donated to the society. Trevor Bird at Stella Jones donated the cedar saw log while Mike Cummings milled it and quarried the stone footings. Later this autumn, a special bench the society commissioned from wood carver Rod Aspeslet as well as cereamic trail signs being created by Nancy Geismar and Mas Matsushita will also be installed. That installation is a few months away but here are photos of Mike’s benches being installed:
