Councillor Ray Jarvis moved to Princeton with his wife Betty 15 years ago after 30 years in the bowling industry. Jarvis was the mastermind behind the B.C. Bowls for Kids campaign which has raised millions of dollars and served on the board of Children’s Variety Club. He was also president of the Notre Dame School in Vancouver.
Since coming to Princeton, Ray has spent 13 years on the executive of the Legion including three years as president, 11 years on the Senior’s Branch executive and 11 years on the Child and Youth Committee. He has done three terms as councillor and is hoping to give it one more kick at the can.
“I have been involved in many good projects in town. I had a rough patch for the past few months, but am feeling better and ready to get back to work.”
