Santa PAWS Fundraiser

On Sunday November 29th, Big Sky Golf Club hosted the Santa PAWS Fundraiser. The event featured a Silent Auction as well as photos with Santa for locals & their pups! All proceeds from the event went to the Pemberton Animal Well-Being Society & there was an amazing amount of support from the community! 

The Pemberton Animal Well-Being Society is a local, non-profit organization that was developed to provide support and relief to local animals in need. The shelter runs solely on donations provided to the community and relies heavily on volunteers to keep it going. As this organization is our only local animal rescue shelter in Pemberton, it was great to see how the community came out to the Santa PAWS Event to show its support!

AC Gas was happy to contribute 5 x $20 Gift Cards to the Santa PAWS Silent Auction as auction items.

The total amount raised by the event was $9,280.80! Such an amazing community effort for a local non-profit organization. Happy Holidays everyone!

This year, the legendary Pemberton Barn Dance was BACK! Held in Pemberton's new Downtown Barn on September 26th, the event hosted Dakota Pearl & the Chris Buck Band. The event SOLD OUT, with 400 attendees. Proceeds from the event went towards community projects run by the Pemberton Lions Club & Rotary International. 

AC Gas & AC Petroleum donated 26 propane tanks for the event, which kept all of the heaters going for the night! We were proud to be a sponsor of this awesome community event, and were amazed by the turnout. Already counting down the days until next year! Yeehaw!

Golf Tournament Fundraiser

On September 17, the Pemberton & District Health Care Foundation held a golf tournament at Big Sky Golf Club to raise funds to support health care in the Pemberton Community and the Sea-to-Sky corridor. The Health Care Foundation is a non-profit charitable society, and funds raised are put towards both minor & major health care equipment, local senior and youth programs, health care programs & initiatives, renovations to the medical center, and education programs. 

AC Petroleum & AC Gas were proud to sponsor a hole at this year's event. Our fuel drivers - Ian, Tank, and Rob - played in the tournament, as well as the head mechanic, Rhys, from our sister company Lizzie Bay Logging!

There was a total of 104 golfers in the tournament, and the Health Care Foundation managed to raised $26,000 overall! We are already getting excited for next year's tournament, which will be held on September 15, 2016! 

Lunch Wraps Now Available at AC Gas

To celebrate the kick-off of back-to-school season, we offered a lunch special at AC Gas! The special featured delicious, freshly made lunch wraps from Mount Currie Coffee Co. For $8,  you could get a chicken, ham, turkey, or veggie wrap, and a drink! This special was a hit with high-school kids, as well as local employees working at stores situated around the gas station. These lovely folks are all big fans of Mount Currie Coffee Co., but weren't always willing to make the trek to the other side of town to grab their lunch. So, offering their scrumptious wraps at the gas station was a no-brainer, really! 

We are thrilled to be able to offer local, freshly-made food at the gas station. And since the special went so well, we are excited to announce that we will be continuing to offer Mount Currie Coffee Co. wraps at AC Gas! The wraps will now be $7 each, and will not be bundled with any specific beverages. If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of the friendly staff members at AC Gas. 


Throwback to Canada Day

This year AC Petroleum & Lizzie Bay Logging joined in on the Canada Day celebrations in Pemberton! In the parade, we had an AC Petroleum fuel truck & a Lizzie Bay pickup truck clad with red & white balloons and Canadian flags. Some of our staff members even walked in the parade as well, and handed out beach balls from the back up of the pickup truck! 

The parade came to an end at the Community Center, and the Post-Parade Celebration began! There was various tents set up with local businesses selling their fresh produce or handmade goods, live music, kids playing in the water park, games, and so much more. Our staff were at the AC Petroleum tent handing out AC & Lizzie Bay beach balls and AC tattoos, and selling ice cream bars from AC Gas. All proceeds from the sales of the ice cream bars were donated to the Pemberton Children's Center - & we ended up raising $250!

It was a great day, and these amazing photos from Amie at LeBlanc Studios made it even better. 

Not to mention these photos of Alison's adorable son Rudi! 

Slow Food Cycle Sunday

The Pemberton Slow Food Cycle is the ultimate Sunday Funday! This year, the 11th Annual Slow Food Cycle event was held in the Pemberton Valley, and people came from near and far to take part in the event. Tourism Pemberton describes the event perfectly - "a celebration of food, farmers, and the joys of biking!" The Cycle is 50km in total; participants can do it at their own pace, and can choose to do some or all of the route. 

Local farms and vendors set up stands along Pemberton Meadows Road, and sold fresh produce, crafts, and delicious food and drinks- all the while providing endless entertainment for all of the cyclists as well! Mile One Eating House set up camp at Bob Mitchell's farm and had Pemberton Beef Burgers for sale. At Across the Creek Organics, owned by Bruce & Brenda Miller, they had a wide variety of tents set up - fresh flowers, Whistler Pierogies, homemade ice cream sandwiches, drinks and popsicles from the Pemberton Distillery, pies & sausage rolls, Purebread Whistler, and so many more! To top it all off they also had live music as well. At Eddie's Corner they also had plenty of stands set up, as well as a midday Wrestling Event! {Did I mention endless entertainment?}

The Slow Food Cycle is an amazing way to celebrate everything that Pemberton has to offer. Like their slogan says, the future of food is local!

Pemberton Music Festival

From July 16-19, Pemberton Music Festival took over the town! Festival-goers came from all over Canada and even the States to join in on the 4 days of fun in our hometown. 

During setup and throughout the festival, Huka Entertainment of course needed fuels and oils to keep them moving! AC Petroleum was proud to deliver both gas and diesel to the festival site for their onsite vehicles and generators, as well as propane for the shower trailers, festival staff catering trucks, and all of the wonderful vendors! The Pemberton Festival staff also visited our cardlock in the Industrial Park to fuel up their vehicles, and purchase various oils and lubes for their machinery.

Grand Opening of AC Gas

This spring was a very exciting time for AC Petroleum! We took over the Esso gas station & convenience store downtown Pemberton - now known as AC Gas! New ownership & a fresh face, but the same great products and friendly staff. After completing some renovations and maintenance to the location, we held the Grand Opening Celebration on Friday June 19th. Our fuel driver Ian was BBQ'in up some hot dogs, and there was also delicious red & white cupcakes made by our accountant Vera! It was great to see so many community members come out to celebrate the Grand Opening, and despite the rain, we had an amazing day! We look forward to continuing to serve all of the loyal Pemberton residents.

Industrial Park Open House!

On May 9, the Pemberton Chamber of Commerce held their first annual Open House event in the Industrial Park. This was a great opportunity for local residents to come out and see what the businesses in the Industrial Park have to offer! Of course AC Petroleum and Lizzie Bay participated in this Open House event, and set up a tent at our cardlock here in the Industrial Park. Some other participating businesses included Big Al's Car Wash, the Pemberton U-Brew, Goodlife Cafe, Sabre Rentals, Mainroads, Mountainview Storage, the Pemberton Distillery, and many more! Each participating business was marked with a single red balloon at the end of their driveway and participants were given maps to guide themselves through the Industrial Park. 

The weather cooperated with us, and it was a beautiful hot sunny day! We set up a pop-up tent to try and shade ourselves from the heat, and had an ice cream cooler full of different flavours, provided by the Pony Restaurant. These cones were given away free of charge, as well as our Lizzie Bay and AC Petroleum goodie bags, filled with assorted candies. We also had a draw for a free 20 lb. BBQ propane tank - congratulations to the winner, a local gentleman by the name of Jeff Hesthammer! 

We also had an AC Petroleum fuel truck and Lizzie Bay logging truck on display with lots of balloons! Overall it was a great day, and we look forward to next year's open house!
