The Reach Society Child Development Centre in Ladner is the beneficiary of Premium Fencing’s charitable project that was built in the memory of a dedicated employee.

It was back in August the 36-year-old company, through the generosity of Premium founder Brent Mitchell and CEO Simon Mitchell, installed fencing to keep children safe in the pre-school area of the Memorial Park building. The value of the project is in excess of $6,000.

Earlier this week, a memorial plaque was unveiled at the site to honour Premium employee James “Jimmy” Fabiszewski who passed away earlier this year.

Premium Fencing staff, REACH Pre-School manager Susie Gall and members of Fabiszewski’s family were in attendance for the unveiling, including his wife Marina and daughter Eden.

The company also used the ceremony to announce Fabiszewski will be forever recognized in its annual charitable projects.

“I was fortunate to install my first fence with Premium Fencing under Jimmy’s lead. He definitely left a lasting impression. He was a great man and a great man for our company,” said Sam Clare, a Project Lead with Premium and a Ladner local. “He will be well remembered. This fence we have put up and all future charity projects we do are going to re-named the James Fabiszewski projects moving forward.”
