Bronze Plaque to Honour North Star of Herschel Island

The beautiful upper causeway around Victoria BC’s harbour is lined with bronze plaques honouring ships that have moored in the harbour or sailors who have earned distinctionmthrough their work at sea. I spoke with the general manager of the greater Victoria Harbour Authority who thought that honouring north Star in this way was a great idea. She linked me up with the person in charge of these plaques who then told me the price. We are now trying to raise about $1,000.00 for this project. The plaque will come in at $600 but there will always be additional expenses and if we can raise more then it can go into the paint and varnish fund.

We are fundraising through the site GoFundMe.com and the button to get there is (hopefully) here:

or here:

<div id= “gfmwidget6329″><a href=”http://www.gofundme.com/”>Raise Money Online</a></div><script type=”text/javascript”>var rand=Math.random (); document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=’http://funds.gofundme.com/index.php?route=widgets&d=6329&s=2&url=/d4sdc&t=0&v=”+rand+”‘ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));</script>

If copying and pasting the above doesn’t work then please go to GoFundMe.com and search North Star of Herschel Island for details.
