The donation by Chinook Lodge in 2013 represented the 10th year of annual donations to the Masset community where our business operates (aggregate $10,000).
In 2009 we revised our sponsorship program to include $1,000 annual donations to the Haida Gwaii Society for Community Peace on behalf of the Food Bank.
Between 2003 and 2008 we provided annual $1,000 bursaries to Grade 12 Students in memory of long term Masset resident Bill Watson who was our friend and employee.
