2012 has been a tough year for Beiseker. We've lost many people who were game changers in the life of our community. This past week, we've had to add two more to that list.
Harold Knight lived west of town and was active in three communities; Irricana, Beiseker and Crossfield. He took part in the formation of Beiseker's very first Recreation Master Plan back in the 1970's.
Rollie Brunell was Beiseker's Fire Chief for many years in the 1990's. He was well respected around our community. I fondly recall riding with Rollie in the fire truck each Christmas Eve as we drove Santa around to see the kids. His wife Ruth was our Village C.A.O. Rollie and Ruth had recently taken residence in Prince Edward Island.
I was saddened to learn of these passings and my condolences go to the friends and families of both of these outstanding people.
