FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Tyler Lillico was surprised by his friends and supporters from the Fort St. John Association for Community Living Wednesday afternoon to celebrate his one-year work anniversary.

Lillico works at Aniela’s Kitchen through Community Living’s careers program. It’s his first full-time gig, and he says he loves working in the kitchen, listening to classic rock, and helping wherever he’s needed.

“When I joined the association, I knew they had a job program, and I wanted to find myself a job… So boom, one year later, I’m going strong,” said Lillico, 22.

Sheri Ashdown, inclusion and employment program manager for the Association for Community Living, says the careers program has been a great success.

Owners Jeanette and Blair Johnston say they’re very proud to have Lillico as part of their team, and appreciate his warm personality and willingness to learn.

“He’s always so sunny, we really enjoy having Tyler here,” said Jeanette.
