Members of the Island Coastal Economic Trust held their regular board meeting in our conference room this week and we were pretty excited to see them and say thanks as ICET provided 1 $Million to the project. Very significant to us as this represents the very strong regional support for the Deep Bay Marine Field Station and VIU’s goal of supporting coastal communities.
Some of the ICET board and staff pose with Don Tillapaugh during a facility tour after their meeting.

And like all our visitors our new touch tanks (a work in progress) were a big hit!. Also in this photo Greg Phelps, (red shirt) mayor of Courtenay.
