Some major kudos now for some long serving members of Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue.

Group President Paul Berry says three members were given their 40 years of service certificates at their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday night in Courtenay.

And that just added to the three SAR members who were recently given certificates from Comox Valley RCMP. Chris Smith, Mark Lister, and Paul Berry himself were recognized for their roles in some high profile searches this year.
