Friends celebrate Saturday

  • Nov. 16, 2012 5:00 p.m.

The celebration at the Queen Charlotte Visitors centre on Saturday will be a “three-ring circus,” said Friends of the QC Visitors Centre Society board member Greg Martin.Cake and refreshments will be served from 1-4 pm to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the creation of the Friends of the QC Visitor Centre Society, said Mr. Martin. He described the event as a three-ring circus because it will also have a book launch and introduce a new out door sculpture project initiated by the society.The book being launched is Gumboot Girls, a collection of stories of women’s adventures on the north coast of BC in the 1970s and contains stories from islanders such as Carol Kulesha and Su-San Brown. The book is published by Muskeg Press of Prince Rupert.The planned sculpture is a 12-16 foot copper-clad breaching humpback whale by artist Lon Sharp and a scale model will be on display at the anniversary celebration. Mr. Martin said the sculpture will be a “nice contribution to the town,” and will stand on the north side of the Visitors’ Centre, in the rock garden. The society will be looking for pledges for the sculpture, as the society needs to raise $ 25,000 for the project.Mr. Martin said everyone is invited to the celebration, as it is really a tenth birthday party for the society.
