FUNDRAISER IN TOM’S MEMORY, SUNDAY AUGUST 28 1 P.M. LIGHTHOUSE PUB, SECHELT, B.C.:
Just a few minutes ago, as I was running along the dock across the street from home, watching the early morning float planes take off, viewing boats coming and going into the marina against the backdrop of the mountains, and chatting with Lighthouse Pub’s manager, Dale, an idea took hold.
We finalized plans for Tom’s memorial birthday party/ fundraiser: For more information; see the Events Page.
