Cowichan Valley Shrine Club Presents Certificates of Appreciation to Cowichan Collision and Mark’s Instant Sign Shop

On 26 July 2017, the Cowichan Valley Shrine Club presented Certificates of Appreciation to Cowichan Collision, 5194 Mearns Road, and Mark’s Instant Sign Shop, 750 Jubilee Street, two local businesses which provided their services, free of charge, for the Cowichan Valley Shrine Club‘s antique fire truck, which is used in Gizeh Shrine fund raising for Shriners Hospital For Children.

Cowichan Collision painted the fire truck while Mark’s Instant Sign Shop provided the new decals on the fire truck.
