The Cowichan Lake Community Forest Co-operative will match all private donations made by Dec. 31 to a total of $30,000. Private donations up to now total $8,698.50.

A calendar featuring Wilmer Gold Photos is now for sale at a cost of $18. They are available at the Footwear Centre, Curves and the Museum.

The total at this point is $30,000 with the goal being $110,000. To build the addition to the lock-up stage will take approximately $50,000. To finish the interior and put in proper storage and shelving would take up the remainder. They will be applying for grants to hire a second person to sift through the collection, catalogue it, and put it into proper containers for storage.
