The Chimney/Felker Lakes Landholders Association (CFLLA) can be dated back to the early 1960’s as a group of volunteers who were eager to support the development and sustainability of a community, although the official date of constitution is 1991.
That’s over 60 years of volunteers who have diligently stepped forward to serve their community in the areas of (as outlined in our constitution);
- To preserve and enhance the quality of our environment.
- To assist government in the orderly development of the area considering multiple land use consistent with the preservation of the ecology.
- To promote, foster, develop community spirit and good Citizenship.
- To promote and operate the community/fire hall located at Block A of the N.E. ¼ section 12 township 44 Lillooet District.
- To promote, acquire and provide fire protection services and firefighting equipment for the use and benefit of the membership of the association.
