Here’s what the Mayor of Vanderhoof had to say about his town’s new Theme Song:

“An opportunity for community building… I was thrilled to be able to get up on stage with all of those who contributed and sing our new song for the first time. But it doesn’t end there. The ‘Heart of it All’ will be used to promote Vanderhoof for many years to come.”

Gerry Thiessen, Mayor, District of Vanderhoof, BC.
