In praise of a beautiful district

Agassiz is home to the most beautiful avenues in the province

Please convey our thanks to the municipality (Mr. Kohuch and Mr.Hardy and their staff) and to the many dairy farmers that make the District of Kent the drop-dead beautiful place that it is.

We are very grateful to the municipality and to the farmers for allowing us access to the miles and miles of beautiful walking trails on the various dikes, particularly the Spaeti family and their pedestrian access. In particular we are very grateful to the Hoogendorn, Schwichtenberg and Klop families for their beautifully tended fields which are much a joy to drive beside on Whelpton and Tutteyns Roads. Agassiz Avenue, which passes through the Schwichtenberg farm, is the most beautiful avenue in B.C. and the walking trail around the farm is a huge asset to the drop-dead beautiful District.

We are also grateful to the memory of ex-mayor Gunther Schwichtenberg who presided over the previous community plan of 2007 and to those who have implemented that plan (Sylvia Pranger) and have seen the District of Kent develop into a drop-dead beautiful District.

Even if it does smell to high heaven at muck spreading time!

Roger and Anne Bate
