Press Release May 12th, 2014
New Denver and all the communities along Slocan Lake are reeling with this tragedy. This is a small community and every accident and loss is personal. This is a close knit community that rallies together in times of need and never has this been more apparent. The outpouring of assistance to do whatever is needed is a trademark of this community and in times of loss is a reminder of why we live here.
We would like to thank the New Denver and Area Fire Department, B.C. Ambulance, RCMP and the Arrow Lakes Search and Rescue in addition to all the volunteers of the community who continue to work on our behalf.
Counseling has been made available to all at Lucerne School, 604 7th Avenue, New Denver BC. Please register at the main office.
The families and friends of the deceased and missing are grieving and need time to deal with this. Please respect their privacy at this time.
Ann Bunka, Mayor
