The Tugboat Project (Nov. 2012 - Sept. 2014)

On September 14, 2014 was the special celebration to officially open the revitalized tugboat and to unveil the historic plaques.

The management, organization, research, writing, translating and physical labour of the Tugboat Project, were all done by volunteers. Funding was provided by grants from the C.L.D. and Municipalité de Cantley. Many others donated or contributed materials, or their expertise, for modest cost or honorarium. The following is a list of those who helped make this remarkable project possible, many within short deadlines. To them, and to the many volunteers who worked daily the summer of 2014, we owe many thanks!

Thank you!
