An organization you may never have heard of has come forward with a large donation for the Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre.

Captain Terry Stuart, who presented the cheque  to incoming Centre President Chris Banner on behalf of The British Columbia Supercargoes’ Association said the move was primarily initiated by a concern over the safety of historical artifacts.

He is quoted in a short article in the Cowichan News Leader as having said; “We were concerned that your valuable artifacts in the pods and pavilion might be jeopardized, so this donation is toward your roofing fund.”

Chris Banner called the unexpected gift Fantastic.

The roofing project, underway for a few weeks now was a renovation sorely needed by the Maritime Centre, the pier “pods” which housed many exhibits had become unfit for that purpose due to water leakage and resultant mold problems.

New shingles, made from recycles car tires are being applied by local contractor Golden Rule Roofing.
