LETTER: Grypma grateful

Retired fire chief thanks Osprey Foundation for his tribute evening.

Re: Grypma gala raises $11,800,” Dec. 9

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to P’nina Shames and all the members of the Nelson Osprey Community Foundation for the wonderful evening honouring me and the first responder community in Nelson.

Having served for 38 years in the Nelson Fire Rescue service I have seen firsthand what the Osprey society has accomplished in helping make Nelson the best place to live in the world. I would also like to thank all those that donated to the evening as well my family and friends that attended to celebrate my retirement and donate to the fundraiser.

A special thanks to retired Capt. Jack Chambers for his kind words, his friendship, and his support over the last 40 years. In Jack’s own words, “When all else fails, listen to the captain.”

Simon Grypma
