It is a privilege for me to bring a short message on the update of our History Book of 1984. There have been a lot of changes in this period of time and a lot more changes will be seen as time goes on.

In writing and compiling a History Book of a particular community and its people, it quickly becomes obvious such history must include people from the surrounding area. None of this history would be made possible without the co-operation from many people who have contributed.

Being on counci I since 1978 and Reeve of the Municipality since 1983 has been a real experience and a challenge. It has been an interesting and exciting part of my life.

I have had the privilege of working with past and present Mayors and Councils of the Town of Erickson. In 2003 the town will be celebrating their 50th anniversary.

I want to say thank you to the people of the R.M. of Clan william and the Town of Erickson for all their support over the years and I want to congratulate the History Book Committee for all their hard work. Without this dedication it would never be possible.

To the past and present individuals of the R.M. of Clanwilliam and the Town of Erickson, may I extend my best wishes for good health and happiness and God's blessing now and in the years to come.

Respectfully submitted, Russell Tiller, Reeve R.M. of Clanwilliam
