Peter Tamlyn

 

Society members will be saddened to learn of the death of a long time fellow member and faithful volunteer. Peter Tamlyn passed away on February 16th 2017 after a prolonged battle with colon cancer. He was 63.

Peter was a woodworking hobbyist and he applied his interests to devising and implementing the many renovations and repairs needed in the Quaco Museum building. He also used his home woodworking shop to construct a half dozen long sturdy tables for use in fundraising activities and a variety of other Society uses.

Peter was a quiet man who was a pleasure to work with. He was an inventive man and his kindly, patient manner permitted other volunteers to learn from him. Peter has been missed during his period of illness and will be missed in the future.

 

Library Renamed

Friends of Betty's and patrons of the library that she loved will be pleased to learn that at the Annual General Meeting of the Society on 16 August 2016 the membership voted overwhelmingly to rename the Carson Library to the "Betty Thibodeau Library".

 

Prince Victor Figurehead

Rob Moran, a former President of the Society is currently attempting to raise funds to acquire the figurehead of the ship Prince Victor which was built in St. Martins.  If successful, he intends to repatriate the figurehead from England and place it in the Quaco Museum.  You can read more about the figurehead and find out how you can help Rob's efforts by clicking on "Prince Victor" in the menu to the left of this text.

The next meeting will be held at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, 9 May 2017.  The meeting will be in the Vaughan Room of the Quaco Museum in St. Martins.  Our featured speaker will be announced on this page when we have confirmed.
