Jake Weaver 2016 CCC Volunteer of the Year!

With great pride, Hollyburn Cross Country Ski Club would like to congratulate Jake Weaver, our fabulous head coach, on winning the 2016 Cross Country Canada Volunteer of the Year award.

Awarded to men or women who have made a significant contribution to the local, regional or national development of cross country skiing -- individuals who have gone "that extra mile" in their volunteer contribution to their club or division or on a national committee or board.  

Hollyburn is so very lucky to have both Jake and Birgit Weaver -- who have both contributed countless hours to our club.

Congratulations, and thank you!
