During the Harvest Festival at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village (KBPV) Fran Cyr and his wife Colleen Casey-Cyr were presented with certificates of recognition and a commemorative centennial coin for their 10 years of dedicated volunteer service at KBPV as members of the Pincher Creek and District Historical Society (PCDHS). Colleen is the long-standing PCDHS president. "They make a great team," said Mayor Don Anderberg, explaining Colleen comes up with ideas, and then Francis has the know how to execute them. Representatives from the Town of Pincher Creek and the MD of Pincher Creek were there to mark the occasion. In addition there were letters and certificates from MLA David Swann and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.

One letter was from the Premier of Alberta Rachel Notley to the couple. "Congratulations and best wishes as you celebrate ten years of dedication and volunteerism at the Pincher Creek and District Historical Society, and to the Pincher Creek community."
