BUILDER

 

Al Clemmer

For the sixty years Al has lived in Alder Flats, he has been the unheralded volunteer, fund-raiser and go-to guy to get things done in his  community.   In that time he's been instrumental in building and maintaining recreational facilities, organizing activities, fundraising, and being an active participant in several activities.  He has left his mark in curling, hockey, rodeos, annual pack horse races, the Centennial Park, and Legion to name just a few of his contributions over the years.  What he started by helping his dad in 1957 with the building of a community hall expanded and continues to this day even though he is an octogenarian.
