trio.jpgIt’s a story of local boy does good – real good in fact when you consider that 10 years ago Chris O’Donohue started out with not much more than a wheelbarrow and a dream. Last week, the gang at The Great Canadian Landscaping Company broke out the bubbly and the beer in a somewhat bittersweet end-of-summer celebration that wasn’t just designed to toast the triumphs of their business longevity, but also to remember a fallen family member. In memory of his late mother-in-law, North Van realtor Shirley Clarke, owner Chris O’Donohue teamed up with the ALS Society of BC to start up an annual donation program in her name. Congrats to all involved.

01 – Without these “branch” managers, there simply wouldn’t be a team behind Great Canadian Landscaping – three cheers for the gang who loves to dig in and get dirty. From left: staff members Steve, Alex H, Alex M, Allie and Ben.

02 – Leading the crew with a toast or two are Great Canadian Landscapers owner Chris O’Donohue and marketing man Jason Black.

03 – Laura Clarke, daughter to late realtor Shirley Clarke, has already got herself a landscaper in training in nine month-old daughter Emerson.

04 – Lisa Hercus, of the ALS Society of BC, is happy to attend and receive the donations made by both the company and by “Team Clarke” realtor rep Jordan Clarke.

05 – We’ll buy an “Eh” please – Great Canadian’s Colin Rawlinson is in charge of spinning the “Wheel of Fortune” for some fabulous door prizes.

06 – Bartender Chad Cousins, left, keeps the party going with long-time Great Canadian employee Landon Giesbrecht and Neighbourhood Construction’s Jeff Kindrat.
