Allison Zoobkoff and Sara Tomlin were all smiles while greeting Castlegar visitors on Canada Day at the Visitor Centre on Monday, July 1.
The ladies said they had guests in from Holland earlier in the day, adding that a lot of the 50 – 100 people they see in a day are from Europe — another large percentage comes from Ontario.
“Europeans love doing bike tours in the Kootenays,” said Tomlin.
It’s Zoobkoff’s second year at the centre and Tomlin’s first; both said they enjoyed the job and meeting people from all over the world.
They both also seemed happy that part of their job did not have anything to do with the long line of recreational vehicles waiting to make use of the sani-dump located on the property.
“The city looks after all that,” laughed Zoobkoff.
