Thanking Tim Facey for work at Virginia Park Community Centre

MS MICHAEL: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.

It is a real honour to stand today to recognize Tim Facey, an integral part of the Virginia Park community for thirty-five years. Tim started teaching physical education at Virginia Park Elementary School in 1978. He retired in June, but remains committed to the students as a member of the school council.

Tim has been Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Virginia Park Community Centre for twenty-eight years. I cannot tell you how often I have seen Tim at events in Virginia Park, organizing or helping out in some way or other.

He volunteered on both the provincial and national level for conference committees and received the Award of Honour for his outstanding contribution, professional competence, and long-time devotion and dedication to physical education in this Province.

The Virginia Vaulters gymnastic display team that he founded in 1979 has performed more than 200 shows in the Province.

Tim says he deserves the rest retirement will bring, but I suspect we will continue to see him at school and community events for a long time to come.

In the meantime, Mr. Speaker, I ask all hon. members to join me in thanking Mr. Tim Facey for his many contributions to Virginia Park in the last thirty-five years.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!
