Port McNeill Council makes donation

Port McNeill Council agreed to make a donation to rotary auction.

A letter from the Rotary Clubs of Port Hardy and Port McNeill was on the agenda for Port McNeill’s regular council meeting on Monday, Oct. 3.

“It is with great pleasure that we inform you of the upcoming 30th Annual Rotary Radio Auction, which will be held Nov. 5 and 6 at the Thunderbird Mall in Port Hardy,” wrote Dale Dorward, Adam Ireton, Ana Estrada, Bill Velie, and Deborah Murray. “Your past generosity has enabled us to undertake many projects in the North Island. We are again asking for your support by donating an item to the Auction.”

Last year council donated one harbour parking pass, two harbour boat launches, and two family season pool passes.

“I’m down for the same,” said Councillor Aaron Frost. “Same,” agreed Councillor Jay Dixon. The request for the donation was approved by the Port McNeill Council for the upcoming 2017 year.
