On the August 3-6th 2012 long weekend the Ex-Forest Service Vessel Squadron and the BCFS100 Centenary Society will host a Rendezvous of wooden BC Forest Service vessels in Victoria’s inner harbour.

The Ships Point Wharf will have Then and Now displays of BC Forest Service artifacts and equipment, an opportunity to take pictures with Smokey the Bear and our 1931 Model A Ford pickup, and much, much more! Come celebrate our Century of Service to the people of BC and tour the vessels that supported the BCFS ‘water’ districts’ along BC’s coast.

If any staff or retirees would like to volunteer to support the event and interact with the public during this centenary celebration please contact Nicole Gagnon at 250-356-0085 or
