The History

Every Friday to Sunday (& holiday weekends), twelve months of the year the Parking Lot Team take their assigned shifts. The team made up of; Garry (Tex) McArthur, from Burnaby Lions Club; Ward Ashley and Project Chair, Garry Ferris provide more than 140 hours a month, raising funds for the club. All of which goes a long way towards the club being able to donate almost $100,000 (in 2014) to our selected projects and charities, both locally and Internationally.

The lot started back in the 1970’s when West Van District, tired of the chaos and complaints they received on the busy summer weekends, asked the Horseshoe Bay Lions Club to provide supervision in return for the revenues charged. This grew over the years to such a level that at its height in the mid 90’s HSBLC could not handle it alone and they asked ATLC to take it over and bring in some other local service clubs to assist.

It was 4 times the size it is today, handling 400+ cars and a shuttle bus. The new Co-Chairmen, CM PP Bryan Terrace and PP Derek Perkins had their hands full, coordinating more than 5 different service clubs ( Squamish L.C., Mount Seymour L.C., Capilano L.C., 2 Masonic lodges and more) man hours and shift assignments . There were two assigned to working on the lot (collecting $15/car for the weekend) and one driving the school bus we acquired to shuttle them down to the terminal. From the Easter Weekend to Thanksgiving, from 6am to 10 pm, Friday , Saturday, Sunday and Holiday Mondays, in  4 hour shifts. At the end of the season the hours each club provides were tallied up and awarded $10 / man hour for their own fundraising requirements.

The lot was cut down to about 100 spaces with the building of the new Horseshoe Bay Fire Hall and Community Centre, resulting in a much easier to manage and man project. With the drop in revenue and size, we had to cut out the bus as the gas and insurance alone was costing over $2000 per month.

We now only need a four man crew and luckily enough we have finally secured a permanent full time team who show up diligently every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, helping us to realize our motto: WE SERVE
