On October 25, 15 students from Tuttlingen Germany visited the trail and Museum, hosted by Hans Maurer and Dave Florence, followed by our winterization work party.
Nice weather for Art's Alive in the Park. Our display featured Betty Wilson doing cedar inner bark and root weaving; Ron Hunter carving, a graphic on the Miniature Rail Project, and final sales/draw for the Seal head
On July 13/14 we vacated the former off-site storaage location and re-located savable items to a stall in Parsons barn. We sold scrap iron to Augusta for $82.95; donated the outboard engines and many duplicate chain saws to Lee Kolazar, with others destined for Don Pillat's collection on Texada via Ron Nassichuck's metal storage
Canada Day 2011
We had a table under the tent in font of the museum, and sold raffle tickets from 4:30 to 8 pm

Scouts Trail Painting Project2009
For our 2009 Sea Fair display in front of the Forestry Museum, we were pleased to present Elsie Paul, a Sliammon Elder, and Betty Wilson, a local SD47 teacher, who shared their knowledge of traditional Sliammon forestry-related culture with hundreds of people who stopped by. Betty and Elsie demonstrated techniques for using the cedar tree to make baskets and other domestic products. In addition, members of the Sliammon archeological project were on hand to show and discuss some of this year's progress. Ron hunter was there to carve axes for the kids, and the museum enjoyed a large attendance of visitors stopping by between the midway and the beach events. Close by to us was an information table from the Historical Museum that featured a fish pond for kids 3-6. The Townsite Heritage Society had a booth in the main display area.

A surprise for 2012 was receiving a donkey from Davis Bay. We'll research it and seek a permanent home. It's Washington Iron Works Compound Geared Yarder #1619
