Memorial info meeting July 31

  • Jul. 18, 2011 2:00 p.m.

Submitted by Brent Rintoul–A group of community-minded individuals, led by longtime resident Adolf Bitterlich of Tlell, is interested in establishing a memorial building project dedicated to the memory and contributions of the late Jim Fulton. Intended to strengthen bonds between youth and elders of Haida Gwaii, the project organizers intend that no financial gain be involved in nor created by the project, both now and in the future. The project is focused on the proposed construction of a small mountaineering-style log cabin, or cabins, on a walking route yet to be determined between Rennell Sound and Queen Charlotte. At present there is no budget or funding for the project, although certain logistical requirements involving further contributions of time and resources will be needed should the project move forward. All interested parties are invited to attend an initial informational meeting with the project organizers on Sunday, July 31, at the Crow’s Nest in Tlell, starting at 3:30 pm. All input, comments, feedback and suggestions will be greatly appreciated by the organizers and will be considered in determining the fate of this project. See you at the meeting!
