Travel Ambassadors wind up another busy season

Nov 8, 2017

Our Travel Ambassadors celebrated the wrap up of another successful season with a slap-up luncheon at The 101 Brewhouse & Distillery. These volunteers do valuable work as the first point of contact for many visitors travelling to the Sunshine Coast aboard BC Ferries. Their kiosk aboard the vessels on the Langdale/Horseshoe Bay run provides a wealth of information and advice on attractions, activities, and facilities. Travel Ambassadors provide a warm, friendly introduction to our community.


A special ‘shout out’ to LeRoy Pattison for making sure the kiosks aboard both vessels serving the Sunshine Coast (Queen of Surrey and Queen of Coquitlam) were fully stocked with information, and another ‘shout out’ to the TELUS Ambassadors who provided their van for shipping the material from storage to ferry. And a third round of cheers to the crews of both vessels for their support in hosting the Travel Ambassadors once again.

Recruiting, scheduling and coordinating the volunteers is a huge job, and is ably handled by the amazing team of Bill MacKinnon, Dorothy Fraser, LeRoy Pattison, Christine Tingle, Terry Knight and Jim Johnstone. These are the people who, among other key tasks, gather the statistics at day’s end that are essential to obtaining community and government support for the program.


A rousing cheer for all the volunteers that worked together to welcome visitors (and in some cases, new or future residents) to our community. They even keep current residents informed! Well done!

If interested in volunteering, please contact Dorothy Fraser ( See you in 2018!
