Marine Heritage Society
We would like to thank our dedicated volunteers for contributing about 3000 hours of their time. This has allowed us to accomplish both large and small tasks over the past year, inside the ship, around the tugs, and in the park.
We also send a grateful thank you to the companies who have offered their time and expertise, and donated goods, to the various projects completed over the year, including Home Hardware.
The yard around the tugs has had work done. Not finished yet, but looking better.
On the ship itself;
After all the fires this summer,
the KVR Model now has its own
'burn' area with firefighters
Yes, this newsletter is full of well deserved “thanks” - we fully appreciate the extra mile everyone has gone to help us through the second year of this process. Once again the Cannery Brewing has donated a portion of their sales of the LakeBoat Lager to the S.S. Sicamous. We also had the local group of the Friendship Force make a donation to the Society.
As a means of raising funds, our Vice President Matt Verboeket, has offered to craft a table as a thank you gift for any person making a donation of $150 dollars or more. Sample photos of your choices are below. We will make a more formal announcement soon. Stay tuned!
There have been a few changes on the Board of Directors this year. A huge thank you to Adolf Steffen, Sue Darnell, and Murray Grandy, and Rick Johnson who have given the Society many years of their assistance and expertise, helping to bring us to where we are now. It is appreciated. We are hoping they will still drop in when they can.
A heartfelt welcome to the new members, Jessie Laven, Mike Bews, Glen Jacobson, Carole Dumestre, and Jim Rice, who already have a history of contribution to the Society. We look forward to your ideas and experience to move the Society forward in the coming years.
Looking forward to welcoming the public back on to the ship next year if all goes well.
