Submitted by Shirley Kricheldorf–The Tow Hill Road Community New Year’s Gathering was held Sunday under beautiful blue skies in the frontyard of the Trout House Restaurant. Approximately twenty-seven kids and thirty-five adults enjoyed hot dogs, veggie dogs, hot chocolate and marshmallows around a roaring bonfire. Each school-age child received a Christmas mug with their hot chocolate and a gift bag of goodies including a pen, pencil, memo pad, gloves and more. Each household will also be receiving a gift of a hand-crank flashlight to put with their emergency supplies.These have been ordered and will be given out at a later date. This community event and the gifts are made possible with the Gwaii Trust Christmas funding for island residents. It was a wonderful afternoon of camaraderie and community building and we thank Gwaii Trust for making it possible. Looking forward to seeing an even better turn out next year! Happy New Year Haida Gwaii!
