A new sign has been erected outside of the 108 Mile Gas Station to display all the local businesses in the area, as well as a map.
“You can see how many businesses we actually have in the 108. There was never actually a map from the 108 in the public, so that was the main idea,” said Ingrid Meyer, the chair of the 108 Mile Ranch Community Association. “We did it the first time like three years ago and pretty soon we ran out of space.”
The logs and labour were donated from Canada’s Log People, the board and roofing were donated from Noel Thompson of the 108 Building Supply and Ken Monical donated his time to dig the holes for it.
“I was just happy to donate it to the 108 community,” said Theo Wiering, founder of Canada’s Log People. “It turned out really well. I was happy with it.”
Businesses on the board pay an annual rental fee to have their sign up on the board.
“The money is going back to the community,” said Meyer.
That fee will go into upgrades for the community hall or other projects regarding local green areas, beaches and snow removal.
