After the wildfire which destroyed the Town of Lytton in July 2021, including its commercial district and 70 homes, Rotary Club of Steveston organized a relief fund for that community through its foundation. Donations came from that club, a number of other clubs and individuals in this Rotary District and across Canada. Three members of the Siska Indian Band, in the Lytton area, visited the Steveston club on November 14th to thank the club and all those who contributed to the relief fund.
They presented three feathers as gifts of thanks, two of them shown here, made by a local artist from glass collected after the fire from the destroyed structures. In the photo are (l to r) Bill McEwen, Elder Alice Munro, Angela Phillips , Siska Fire Chief Jason Phillips, Past District Governor Bob Blacker and District Governor Shirley-Pat Chamberlain.
