Letter: Put Hall in rec centre

Dear Editor,

I must admit when I lived in the Township of Langley, I was not a great fan of Dave Hall.

But when I moved to Langley City, my opinion changed.

I found out that Councillor Hall was someone who really cared about his community and the people who lived there.

I got to know him a bit better when he showed up year after year as a community volunteer with the local Terry Fox Run.

He arrived without fanfare and never asked for acknowledgement or recognition.

Though I do not live in Langley City any longer and my opinion may be moot, I think it would be a nice gesture on behalf of the current mayor and council to consider naming one of the meeting rooms in the brand new Timms Community Centre in honour of Councillor Hall.

He fought long and hard for this beautiful recreation centre that will serve both the citizens of Langley City and Langley Township.
