Muriel McKay Ross – A lovely memorial to her, with many people attending including SECA members. She will be truly missed. A strong supporter of SECA, we have special memories of her at the Miners Kiosk ceremony. Douglas will do article for the blog. We should plant a tre in memory of her.
Nanaimo Centre Stage.   SECA sent a letter of support that we will put in the blog. A good presentation in support of NCS was made at City Council. There is a need for fund raising and perhaps a second look at the costs deemed necessary to get building up to scratch. The theatre is important to us as it is part of the revitalization of the South End.
Boat Basin – City Council has made a motion in support of preserving the iconic aspects of the harbour. Protection Islanders have launched legal action and have created an alternative proposal. A documentary is made of the port struggle and other actions. So far there is no legally binding contract with the developer. Everything is still in the air. Problem is the Port Authority is answerable to know one – no democratic accountability.

White House – coming along fine. Possible SECA tour of building at some point. We are cultivating a dialogue with NYSA.

Neighbohood Plan – Chris Sholberg is going to the SCA Executive meeting to do an update on the plan. Micheal Carpenter has done a list of possible SECA volunteer actions. This will be put on blog. Nothing to report on traffic light at Haliburton and Nichol. Should have party when installed.

Coffee House – planning happening, but no date yet. Perhaps one in Spring and Fall

Litter Pick-up – need to do one as an increase in litter. Art bins help a lot, but still some messes.
