Silver Willow Staff Feature 
Gene on the right serving a member.

Gene has been with Silver Willow as our Events Coordinator for the past four years. In a previous life he founded and operated a commercial printing company and published a rural community newspaper. In the irony of life Gene employed Gwen Day as a Graphic Designer soon after she and Don were first married; moral of the story - "treat your employees well, you never know if they will become your employer one day!!!"

"Working with friends and serving friends makes this job a lot of fun everyday" Gene says.

Gene is a certified Life Coach and together with his wife Ila, serve as Home School Facilitators with Education Unlimited.

He loves hiking, skiing, hockey and canoeing. Living near the ocean for a season and living in the mountains for a season are still waiting on his bucket list.

Membership Changes @ Silver Willow


Offering the best possible customer service is critically important to us here at Silver Willow. To that end, starting as early as 2017 we will begin limiting the number of memberships sold and a wait list will be created once that maximum is reached. Access to Silver Willow will only to be available to members and their guests at that point. Insuring quality service, booking availability and ultimate safety are among our top reasons for this change.  

If  you  haven't renewed your Silver Willow membership yet, no problem, renew today quickly and easily online and avoid missing any of your membership benefits.  
 
 
New Memberships and Renewals will be pro - rated to March 1, 2017. 

***If you've been thinking about a membership this is a great time to enjoy the privileges of membership at the pro-rated price of $52.50 for December to March, with an automatic renewal agreement for March 1st. It's a one time offer and only going to happen this fall, so join in and get a great deal!!
 
Going forward all memberships will renew automatically on March 1 each year. Members are asked to fill out the new Recurring Payment Authorization Form available at the clubhouse. Please contact us if you would like to receive it by email.  
  
New memberships must be purchased in person at Silver Willow. A membership application process will begin in the new year. 
  
Members can now make their own online reservations two weeks in advance! If you're a current member please email info@silverwillow.ca to create your password.
