This afternoon (Nov 18, 2011) Charlie, Robert and Peter Lee each put a shovel in the ground under the supervision of their builder, Marco Paolella of Marcon Construction. The community came out in full force to cheer on the Lee Family in the ceremonial start of construction for the rebuilding of the Fort IGA. Long-time Fort Langley resident Gladys Johnson said “I’ve been so looking forward to this day. It gives us hope to know that we will have our store back. Thanks to the Lee family for all their hard work and dedication to keep their promise that they would rebuild.”
