President Jim hands a cheque for $10,000 to Sandra Thompson & Michael Stebbings for the theatre building fund. The image is courtesy of Sandra.  She says: Rotary Club of Nanaimo North was the leadership gift of $10,000 that started  the other three Rotary clubs to match them - (Oceanside and Daybreak didn't exist back then!).
So it was an important step in the Service Club campaign which eventually saw every type of club in the region contribute over $200,000!
Ian Niamath, a former member of the club was very actively involved in the fundraising campaign.
Sandra Thompson started working for the Harbourfront Centre Society in 1990 as development officer. Michael Stebbings was project manager from 1993-96.  The official opening of the Theatre was on September 16, 1998.
