Port Renfrew Chamber News

  • Apr. 6, 2011 8:00 a.m.

The March 17 Ancient Forest Alliance and Port Renfrew Chamber of Commerce fundraiser was a very big success. I would like to thank the Sooke Harbour House, The Ancient Forest Alliance and  Adriane Carr for making the event all possible.

I would also like to thank Paul George and Vicky Husband  and all of the folks who came out to support our endeavor.

We raised $6,100 in pledges and cash donations, and made new friends who own companies who are able to give a hand in other areas.

All in all we could not have asked for anything better. Thank you one and all.

We are right on target for opening May 1 and look forward to a very busy season. Please come up for a visit.

On another note, Port Renfrew has also entered the Ultimate Fishing Town competition.

As everyone else, we too feel we have the best fishing in the world.

Good luck to all everyone and may the best town win.
