Retirement Announcement

Please join me in extending best wishes to Wayne Helmer, Public Works Park Utility IV, who retired from Cultus Lake Park on September 29, 2021. Wayne has been an invaluable member of the team for 21 years and will be greatly missed by his colleagues and crew.

Wayne’s service to the Cultus Lake community began in 1997, when he became the Fire Chief for the Cultus Lake Fire Department. He dedicated 12 years to this role, and in November of 2000 he took on an additional position in the Public Works Department.

His expansive knowledge and expertise in all trades, made Wayne an integral part of the team. His unique ability to recall distinctive areas of the park and Sunnyside Campground, made him the go-to guy for repairs. Wayne was always ready to support his team and tackle any challenge.

We wish you all the best in retirement and your future, Wayne!

Dave Driediger, Manager of Park Operations
