Rev. Bragan returns

United Church minister and longtime islands resident Jim Bragan will be returning to Haida Gwaii in July to take over duties at the Skidegate United Church. Rev. Bragan and his wife Vicki have been working in the Cape Breton area of Nova Scotia for the past couple of years. He said he is very much looking forward to coming back to the islands for this posting, which should last from six months to a year. The couple plan to split their time between the manse in Skidegate and a cabin on North Beach. The last time they were on the islands was a short visit about two years ago, said Rev. Bragan, who moved to the islands in the early 1980s. Rev. Bragan said he is looking forward to seeing all his island friends at the Tlell Fall Fair in early August.
