 PROVISO  UB  ��*?"���--  Victoria,   B,   C.  SERVING THE GROWING SECHELT SUNSHINE COAST |)SNINSULA FROM SQUAMISH TO PENDER HARBOUR.  Published in Gibsons, B.C.  January 20. 1955.  Volume 9, Number 3  Reports for the year    were    ported a successful year.  The secretary of Gibsons  . and District Board of Trade  was instructed by the executive to write the minister of  Lands at Victoria, protesting  the proposed sale of -Home Island, known as Salmon Rock.  The" support of the Gibsons  ratepayers, the sports editors  of three Vancouver daily  newspapers\-and the Gibsons  board of commissioners was  also sought.  The    government    will    be  urged to retain ownership    of  this tiny.island as    a    fisher-  'men's landmark.  The present expenditure  at  the Roberts Creek wharf was  also brought up at the meeting. A letter will be written  in regard to this, and many  previous expenditures, the results of which were washed  away. It will be pointed out  also that there was no traffic  to warrant this spending,  whereas there were other projects in the area that seemed  to warrant more attention.  Mr; D. Williamson of Port  Mellon will be written, asking  assistance in, securing a spring  the subject, of a possible regatta to be held at Gibsons,  and information was to be  sought in the matter.  Mr. D. Smith, manager of  the Bank of Montreal, was  elected vice-president of the  Board of Trade, a position left  vacant by the removal of Mr.  Bancroft to Vancouver Island.  A complaint from Mr. R.  Kruse re the drains in front  of the drug store was' referred  to the roads  committee.  '^-Editor: It was with great  interest that we read your  leading article and editorial  regarding the need for a hospital at Gibsons.  iWe pay a good deal of attention to the idea of unity on  the Peninsula, but as far as  iEPbspital matters are concern-  ej| this is apparently more  tc��ken than real.  ^The cost of building and upkeep of a hospital is a heavy  burden to  any   community in  Cliff Mahlman  of    Gibsons    tfiese days.

Some concern was expressed by members in regard to  the effect on taxation the new  assessments, would have, and  also on the amount of the  grants made to Villages by  the B.C. government, from  sales tax revenue. Clerk R.  Burns stated that the village  had no control over the school  tax". Finance chairman*, Commissioner Ritchey said -that if  the village did not increase  its budget in the current year,  the possibility was that a reduced* mill rate would retain  village taxation at its present  level.

It was  decided that it. would he better to have a Gibsons Regatta  or a West Howe Sound Regatta, with the backing of all  organizations and individuals  to make it successful.  .Three new members were  proposed and accepted: Dal  Triggs, William Nasadyk and  Tex Enemark. They were officially welcomed by . Robert  Burns.  Danny Smith, who served  light refreshments to the  Board at a nominal charge,  announced that since this was  the beginning of the local Polio March of Dimes campaign*,  he would donate all receipts  to this fund. The sum of $15.03  was turned over to Ken Fulton for the _ Kinsmen's, Polio  Fund.  A brief account of the Kinsmen's PoI|b funds, and ; their  efforts at rehabilitation on behalf of Ron Brackett, was presented by Ken Fulton and  George' Hunter.

PRESIDENT'S REPORT  In presenting the annual report of our association for the  year ending December 31,  1954, it is my pleasure to report a year of progress, not  only in membership, but as  the secretary-treasurer's report  will exhibit, also in our finances.  This association has now  been in' active operation for  nine years, having been registered under the Societies act,  in B.C., since Jan. 12, 1946.  It" is interesting to note that  of the eight members mention- "  ed in the petition for registration, we still have four whose  names appear on. our membership for .1954; W. G.

In comparison, with the percentage of members attending  other organizations in the area, our attendance was satisfactory, yet there is room for  improvement in this connection.  Your committees, Public Relations, Membership, and Social have operated efficiently,  but it is to be regretted that  in the case of Public Relations  the work of attending the  meetings of the Village Commission, has fallen upon a  very few members principally  Mr. Keen. If members are to  gain a knowledge of how our  Village Commission 'ticks'  they should make an effort to  attend meetings of the Commission which ai'e open to the  public.  ��� Close attention has been  given to the activities that  come within the scope of the  association: Grants to the  VON by the B.C. government,  Ferry rest room accomodation  and bus connection by Pacific  Stages at Horseshoe Bay, pro:  tection of pedestrians at Village crossings, taxation, road %  maintenance, street lighting,  and many other matters being included in our discussions, not forgetting school affairs, and hospitals.  An invitation was extended  to the association, to join the  B.C. Federation of Ratepayers  but no decision has yet been  made in this connection.  Three members of the organization were, elected to the  commission in, the December  election: C. P. Ballentine (reelected): Fred Crowhurst, and  A. E. Ritchey (re-elected).

This little  church* on the corner later  became the United Church.

Well, let's get back to    the  the flume.      One    such;   bolt  caught   a    .worker,     breaking  both his legs.    He still walks  . with a limp.  One day Mr. Dumaresq  started down the flume on, an  inspection trip. He was about  half way down when he decided to cross over to the other side. Instead of stepping  completely over he set one  foot into the flume. As soon  as he raised the other foot the  force of the water knocked  him down.  Down the flume he shot in  a long wild ride, right to. the  bottom.  His wife pulled him out  from amongst the shingle  bolts more dead than alive.  Strange  to     say, .   he    had  summer visitors. Its growth  may be judged by the fact  that three new churches have  recently been opened by the.  present minister, Rev. H. J.  Bevan.  Mr. Armour worked faithfully on the session, of the  church for many years, and  was its treasurer for 30  years.  At times he feared that for  lack of funds and congregation  members the church would  have to be closed. In spite of  these and other difficulties,  the work went on. Tribute  is paid to Mr. Armour, not  only for his years of service,  but for the real affection and  respect with which he is regarded by all.  such.a thirst for    knowledge-  retains?

This past year has-seen its greatest year of expansion and indications  are that 1955 will exceed this. There is a reason ��� Kiwanis ' motto: "We  build" is our guiding beacon at all1 times.  The "Objects" of Kiwanis International are:  "To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life."  "To encourage the daily living of the Golden  Rule   in   all   human    relationships."  "To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and  professional standards." ,  "To develop,,by precept and example, a more intelligent, agressive and serviceable citizenship."  "To provide, throug'h Kiwanis Clubs, a practical means to form enduring  friendships,   to render altruistic   service, and to build better communities."

KIWANIS in 1955  Your Sunshine Coast Kiwanis Club���Serving the entire Sunshine Coast  Many citizens are aware  that the Gibsons Gun Club  began existence in 1952 as a  pistol club and though the  idea at the time,was to encompass most of ,the outdoor  activities it wasn't very catching. The pistol gang carried  on until it became evident  that something had to be done.  Too. many prospective members thought they would have  to lay 'out'''almost $100 for a  pistol  before  they   could  join  At the, annual  meeting    on  Jan.  12, it  was decided    that  the name of the club    would  henceforth    be ��� the     Gibsons  Rod and Gun Club and thaf-a  concentrated  effort  be    made  to sign up everybody possible  that had  any interest' in  outdoor sport. If you happen    to  be one   of those interested  in  trout fishing, sea fishing, skeet  shooting" or eveni pistol shooting, you do not have to.,   own  any    equipment.      The      club  ^members    would    like      very  much to,see you in the club.  * There are many advantages  to /being-.; a member of a Rod  and Guri'*Club,  the most    im-  Roberts Creek  Legion Officers  Result of election of officer's,  and appointments of the Canadian Legion, Branch 219, Roberts  Creek follow:  President, Comrade* .

The laws of Canada,require  every person, with exception  of wholesale and retail dealers  to register all revolvers,, pistols and . fully automatic firearms in their possession. This  does not include the ordinary  type of rifle, shotgun or air  gun.  It is also required that any  person, with the above exception, wishing to purchase a  revolver or pistol, or to receive it into.his possession by  gift, loan or any other^means,  must first obtain the necessary authority to do so from  his local police department before receiving the firearm.  In accordance, with amendments to the Criminal Code of  Canada, a new type of Fire-,  arms Registration certificate  has been in effect since Jan.  1, 1952. For the purpose of  re-registratipn on this new  type certificate, registered  owners are now requested to  forward all copies of certificates in their possession bearing date of issue prior to 1952,  to:  The Commissioner,  Royal Canadian Mounted  Police,  OTTAWA, Ontario.

The club hopes to co-operate  with the     Sechelt   'Peninsula  Rod and Gun,' Club to    foster .'  good competition. The club is  not in    any    way     connected  with them, as' many    prospec  tive members seem to think.  The mdst  needed   item    of  the club now is   a    piece    of  property  on which "to    build  its     clubhouse    and _:   indoor  range.    The members decided  on Wednesday night to    concentrate ��n this.      The ideal  place would be one large  enough to have ^a good outdoor range and skeet shooting  course as well as a spot suitable for -the clubhouse. Of  course it should be not too  far from existing water and  electrical facilities. They feel  that once this is accomplished  the club will roll under its  own steam. Of��course the  more members there are the  easier it is to get it to that  freer-rolling stage. ,.'���'-���'  To join the club why not  have a talk with one or two  of the members. Among the  easiest to locate are Walt or  Morris Nygren, Gordon Ballentine, Rocky Grey, Reg Godfrey, George Hill or Johnny  Bunyan. Any one of them  will be only too pleased to  give you a complete run-down  on the club. . ���   * :  SOLNIK  SERVICE  STATION!
