Justin Kohlman, President Coast Mountain College

We had a great  session with Mr. Kohlman who used Kahoot.it to provide his presentation making it very interactive and fun!  One of their values is adventurous - and we were!  In first place: our President, Rosa Miller; second place went to executive secretary, Bev Killbery; and third place to club secretary, Ellen Witherly.  Hmmmm I sense a theme here!

CMTN uses experiential place based learning - a combination of in-face and online learning, and are teaching other colleges how to implement it successfully.

Our club has made the difficult decision to suspend our annual auction for 2020.  We did not feel comfortable asking our many local businesses to contribute the over 800 items they donate for us to auction in this very difficult year.  We do encourage everyone who would normally purchase items from our auction to please shop local this year.
Stay tuned for news on about our annual sale of 750 tickets!
Blair Mirau, Economic Development Officer, Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a, and CEO of business initiatives.
 
Mr. Mirau updated members on the many initiatives they have in the works.
Prince Rupert Lawn and Garden - After a much needed re-development, the centre re-opened in May of 2020.  After a busy summer they are now working on an exciting new project.  They have installed a hydroponics greenhouse housed in a shipping container.  They will be able to produce 12,000 lbs of greens per year.  They are currently installing a water filtration system for the greenhouse.  Greens will be available for purchase by the public.
