Fraser River Hall of Fame

On Wednesday June 7th, the Fraser River Discovery Centre (FRDC) held their 25th Annual Fraser River Hall of Fame Gala at the Cannery, where the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society was proudly celebrated as this year’s Hall of Fame inductee.  It was wonderful to meet many of the FRDC board members and supporters who attended the centre’s annual fundraiser. Many of our neighbouring Steveston merchants contributed donations for the silent auction to help raise money for the FRDC, and to show their support of the honour received by Cannery. With the Cannery’s deep connections to the Fraser River, it was interesting to hear FRDC Executive Director Stephen Bruyneel refer to the “string of pearls” along the Fraser, including the Cannery, FRDC, and  Fort Langley National Historic Site, and how we all share the important story of the Fraser and its significance to western Canada.
