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.
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

the figurehead from England and place it in the Quaco Museum. You can read
