Viewing pavilion gets railings repaired just in time for the summer months

The pavilion restoration was a great community-oriented team effort all around

The Port Hardy Rotary Club was busy repairing the viewing pavilion on the breakwater between the Quarterdeck Inn and the Glen Lyon Inn, and they had some helping hands from a local company that were volunteering their time, free of charge.

The pavilion was originally built by the rotary club in 2005, taking roughly four months to complete the project, and it has been kept in pretty solid condition over the last 19 years.

Back during the winter months, the rotary club was notified by the District of Port Hardy that the railings were in a bad state and needed to be repaired.

Now that the weather was finally cooperating, the rotary club, along with the K’awat’si Construction Company who generously volunteered employees Roddy Johnny and Walter Nelson to help out, as well as the Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw First Nations mill on the east side of the bay donating all the cedar lumber for the project, went ahead and fixed the pavilion back into pristine condition just in time for the upcoming summer months.

It was a great community-oriented team effort all around.
