“Thank you,” Councillor Pruden began. “My parents were charter members of that club back in the day (when it was) very active … thank you very much.”
“I always enjoy hearing about everything you guys do for the community ... I look forward to what’s next and where you’ll go from here. Thanks very much, guys,” Mayor Leslie said.
