They were married for 71 years until George passed away on March 10, 2014. Left to mourn her passing and carry on her legacy of love are Marge Rennick of Slave Lake, Karen Graham (Ken) of Burlington, Ont, Audrey Parkins (Ed) of Rimbey, David Berg (Elaine) of Edmonton, daughter-in-law Betty Minnes of Spruce Grove and foster son Elvis Glenn. She leaves 16 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren. Ruth was predeceased by husband William George, son Ronald William, grandson Geoffrey William, son-in-law Willis Rennick, and infant granddaughter Brandi. Ruth was always very active in church life, teaching Sunday School for most of her life. Her 71 years as wife and homemaker with George found them living most of that time in Enilda employed by the Northern Alberta Railways or Bissell Brothers Lumber and then retired. The past 6 years have been spent in Slave Lake on Martenview Farms enjoying farm life and family. Ruth’s warm kitchen always included the coffee ready, the cookies fresh and an invitation to “stay to dinner”, maybe enjoy a game of Scrabble later. Celebration of Ruth’s life was held on August 25, 2014 at the Abundant Life Assembly in Slave Lake with interment in St. Mark’s cemetery in High Prairie.

The presentation will touch on the importance of identifying who the beachgoer is and what their typical habits, conduct, and expectations are. While some will bring coolers and grocery bags, others will stay in their lounge chair and order a cocktail and a full lunch from the pool deck. Knowing who these very different beachgoers are, where and when they will arrive, and what your resources are will enable you to provide the very best beach maintenance possible under all conditions.
The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau reported that there were more than 15.5 million overnight visitors to Miami in 2015. Sixty-Two percent (9,672,000) stayed an average of six nights in one of Miami Dade’s coastal Communities. Forty-Eight percent (7,440,000) of the 15.5 million stayed in Miami Beach. In addition to these visitors and tourists we also have our residents of Miami Beach and the nearby communities visiting the beach on a regular basis. Added to this are as many as Twenty-Eight special events on or immediately adjacent to the beach bringing an additional One million people to Miami Beach. With each of these groups comes a similar but different challenge to effective beach maintenance.
