Thunderbird RV Park & Campground, owned by the Campbell River Indian Band, has won the British Columbia Outstanding Achievement Award for Community-Owned Business of the Year, the Campbell River Mirror reported.

Rachel Wiley, co-owner and operator of Seabreeze Take-Out/Catering nominated the Thunderbird RV Park.

“Once we were nominated, the process of filling out the nomination package was both detailed and lengthy,” said Park Manager Sandra Malone. “The criteria for the award included submission of a variety of reporting requirements such as a detailed business statement, financial records, testimonials from our guest over the last few years and reference letters from charitable organizations and verification of community involvement. The park’s success ultimately benefits both the thriving aboriginal community and the City of Campbell River and we were able to demonstrate this effectively to the advisory jury board who chose our business.”
