George Holmes was the first contact person to work with the RDN, at the time focusing on parks.

The Fairwinds Community Association was formed from the Nanoose Property Owners and Ratepayers Association (NPORA) with their first unofficial meeting November 30, 1993.
The Committee agreed that 'the association be social and non-political in character, fun activities such as a golf tournament or fishing derby followed by barbecues were suggested'.
A Steering Committee was formed, and they went to work immediately, with the first important item on the agenda being water, still an important resource then and now.
Key issues and committees in the first year, 1994, are very much like our activites are today:
