THANK YOU MOTT ELECTRIC  for your generous donation of the storage container!

The 10 ft. x 20 ft. container has been placed at the Squamish band office near the site of the fish fence (that will be installed this spring). It is very helpful to have the container for the fence construction and storage of materials and gear.

 

A HUGE thank you to the DNV Fire Fighters for donating $9000 to the Seymour Salmonid Society through their annual Fishing Derby!
