Better late than never

Invited guests and attendees to flowline exhibit delayed

At about 9:30 p.m. this group of honoured guests finally arrived from Connecticut, after a three-and-a-half hours stuck on Sooke Road because of the fire on July 31.

 

From left to right: Mayor Wendal Milne, Wendy Milne, Elida Peers, Ray Vowles, Town Crier Mike Thomas, grandson of Paddy and Danny Pollock:  John Mason, his wife Barbara Kezur, the great-great-grandson, great-granddaughter Rachel Mason and her husband Nathan Popp.

 

The group came to view the flowline exhibit at the Charters River Salmon Interpretive Centre. Many of the invited guests were unable to get to the opening, but those who did arrive had a grand time viewing the historical photos, enjoying the refreshments and food and visiting with others.
