- We paid tribute to more than 300 mothers by giving out roses and chocolates at the second annual Meikle Wind Mother’s Day Brunch held in Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia, where more than 550 guests were served. The District of Tumbler Ridge honored Pattern Energy with an Appreciation Award for our community development activities in the area.
