Ring Creek Recreation Company Ltd., is a not for profit company that is focused on the redevelopment of the Cummings Lake Recreation Area as a local attraction for residents to enjoy, and to help increase tourism to the area.
Directors Tom and Dawn Spicer have been long time residents of the Fairview area. They started and ran local businesses with an objective to keep money in the community, promoting a healthy local economy. The Spicers employed many people over the years and are lucky to continue to enjoy friendships that enrich their lives. Currently Tom runs Peace Pieces Ranch, a fish hatchery that stocks licensed dugouts and ponds with beautiful Rainbow Trout, and Dawn as a Real Estate Professional with Re/max Fairview Office gets to assist with the buying and selling of property in the area.
Strong supporters of the community they chose to raise their family here, and continue to be actively involved in the community.
In the past Tom has helped to beautify the community through such acts as steaming the David Thompson Bible Camp buildings, helping with the restoration of the floors in community halls and museums, planting over 3000 trees on the Fairview Ski Hill, painting of the Towers at the Fairview Ski Hill, and donations made in materials and time towards some of the Snowboard terrain at the Fairview Ski Hill.
Dawn was instrumental in the founding of the Fairview Gymnastics Club in 1996 and ran it as head coach and organizer until 2013. She was involved with the Fairview Minor Hockey for many years as team leader, coach, and parent liason, and was the Fairview Soccer Clubs registrar and treasurer for over 6 years. Dawn has also been involved with the 2004 Winter Games, 2010 Summer Games, 2011 55 Plus Games, 2012 Winter Games, and was the Executive Director of the Fairview College Students Association.
The Spicers are now taking their knowledge from these past endeavors, and their love for their community, to help spearhead this project with assistance from other like minded individuals.
