here is great progress on the USH II. The foundation
has been poured and back filled. The basement is
framed, main floor joists are installed and the main
floor walls are being erected. Exterior doors and windows are
chosen. Soon it will be trusses and roofing. It is great to watch
it all come together. Thanks for participating.

IN MEMORANDUM

n March 2, 2017, the BSIA held its 2016 AGM at the Ultimate Show
Home I in Walnut Grove. Over 60 member attendees were greeted at
the front door and welcomed into this beautiful home that was built
in 2010, with many of the supplies coming from BSIA Member Companies.
The location is next door to the upcoming Ultimate Show Home II.
The afternoon started with a self-guided tour of the home, followed by a
meet and greet while all were enjoying a beverage and appetizers.
Before the formalities began, Board Member, and awards committee chair
Ron Tu, had the pleasure of presenting the 2016 Supplier Orion Awards to
their very deserving recipients, Coast Distributors, Supplier Company of the
Year, Mat Brunt, Inside Salesperson of the year and Geoff Staller, Outside
Salesperson of the year.
The financials were approved and three new board members were added,
Scott Emo of PowerHouse Building Solutions Inc., Tom Hobbis of B.W.
Creative Railings Systems and Shaun Raap of West Central Building Supplies.

We said goodbye to longtime board
members, John Horsnell and Carole
Hamanishi and thank them for their
contributions.
The final item on the agenda
was to pass the gavel from outgoing
Chairperson Brad McCluskie to
incoming Chairman Jay Secord. We
thank Brad for his years of service as
Chair and his continued contributions as he remains on the board. We welcome Jay Secord, as our new Chairperson who has spent the last few years as
a director and Vice-Chair of the BSIA.
Thanks to our affinity partners, Falcon Equipment, Baseline Processing,
Adult & Teen Challenge and Willis Towers Watson for their attendance.
We wish to thank Danny & Louise Evans for hosting our AGM in
their home.

ruce Allen Kehler, April 19, 1922-April 21, 2017
Many lives have been touched by the kind soul of
Bruce Kehler. Lumber Magnate, Monumental Mentor
Charismatic Coach, White Man with a Brown Heart, Larger
than Life, Unselfish Giver, Paramount Patriarch and Free
Spirited Selfie Abuser to name a few.
Bruce had a nickname for everyone. To define Bruce...
nothing short of Inspirational. In true Bruce style, a quick
quote: No beauty shines brighter than that of a big heart.
Family always meant everything to Bruce, leaving behind
his wife Georgina, daughters Corinna, Sharon(husband
Jason), Dawn and grandchildren, Corinna, Amelia, Marcus
and Kendra. He also leaves behind his sister Kathy and brothers Gord and Dave and many nieces, nephews and in-laws.
Pre-deceased by this parents Abe and Mary. His celebration
of life was held of Friday, May 5th, with an unbelievable
turnout, which is a testament to the kind of person/friend/
family man he was.

WAYNE RUFFLE
RETIRES

T

his announcement comes with mixed feelings as
we announce the retirement of one of our valued
employees. Wayne Ruffle our General Manager of the
Sidney location has decided that the time has come to retire.
Wayne has had a long successful career in the building
supply industry; he started his career at Slegg Lumber on
February 1, 1969 and then moved on to work at Doman's and
Revelstoke. The lure of working at Slegg was too much for him
so he returned on September 1, 2001 and never looked back.
