One outstanding individual, Wendel Williams, took it onto himself to walk all the way from Masset to Port Clements and return, Archie stocker Sr. writes. This is an amazing 85 km. He started off at 5 am and returned well after dark to the cheers of all at the telethon. At least on his return trip through the cold and darkness he had an escort. The Old Massett Fire Department followed Wendel, big warning lights flashing, while a private vehicle went before him.He received a roaring welcome and standing ovation back at the hall as he walked in waving the Haida flag. The Old Massett Village Council donated $1,000 on his behalf. An amazing job well done, Wendel Williams, you made everybody proud!
