Thank you to all who joined the Steveston Historical Society as we celebrated our 40th Anniversary at our Fundraising Gala Night on 24 September, 2016. Over 160 friends and supporters came to hear our plans to preserve and promote the history of Steveston in 2017 and beyond.
A food social and ceremonial, guests enjoyed a 3-course Coast Salish feast featuring storytelling from Elder Henry Charles, a silent auction, and a cultural performance from Coastal Wolfpack at the Seine Net Loft, Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site.
The evening was also an opportunity for the Steveston Historical Society to acknowledge the contributions of many individuals, businesses and organizations that have contributed to preserving our historic village.
