Honeymoon Bay steward Merna Moffat got what she wanted; the tallest tree in her community dedicated to her.

On Friday, July 8, a small ceremony of friends and family dedicated the tallest tree in the community – a fir tree outside the Honeymoon Bay Community Hall – to Merna.

“She said ‘I want to have the tallest tree in Honeymoon Bay so I can watch over everyone,’” long-time friend Jean Ruddell said.

Moffat, who was predeceased by her husband Wally, lived in Honeymoon Bay for the better part of the past couple decades.

“Both Wally and her said it was the best 15 years of their life,” Ruddell said.
