Port McNeill Museum Requests Funds

The Port McNeill Museum has asked for funds to help complete a heritage project

A request for funding from the Port McNeill & District Museum has been tabled pending a request for further information.

Museum Secretary Lois Williams submitted the request for $17,000 for 2015 to Town of Port McNeill council.

Included in this amount is a budget of $5,000 to complete a heritage project that would involve interviews with three individuals who have had a significant impact on the community – Former Mayor Gerry Furney, long-time Doctor Granger Avery; and long-time resident Russ Pedersen.

Their “oral and video history is important to preserve for future generations,” wrote Williams in a letter.

Council chose to table the request pending financial statements and visitor statistics.
