Brooks  Point  Legacy

Allan Cecil Brooks - In 1996 the late Allan Brooks agreed to donate one of the three lots that are now known as Brooks Point if the community could raise the remaining $540,000.  Allan’s generosity and his commitment to preserve the land leaves a lasting legacy for future generations.

Sylvia Pincott -  In December 2010 PICA’s President, Sylvia launched PICA’s Brooks Point campaign to raise $150,000, and worked tirelessly to bring the vision of a completed Regional Park to fruition.

The Pender Angel - In 2011 an anonymous individual offered to match all donations up to $50,000.  That offer sparked PICA’s campaign and by September 2011 the Pender community had matched the $50,000 fund and raised a total of $120,000, thanks in large part to the Pender Angel.

Ursula Poepel - Ursula has served as the treasurer for the Brooks Point campaign and has meticulously managed the donations and charitable receipts.  Ursula also provided a generous donation to complete the $150,000 goal in 2012.

John and Dorothy Henshaw - In October 2013 PICA received an anonymous donation as a legacy to the Henshaws.  John and Dorothy were mainstays of the South Pender community who made many lasting contributions to Pender.

Leo Hamson - Also in October 2013 we received a legacy gift from Ruth Hamson to honour the memory of her late husband.  Leo was a lifelong conservationist who recognized and appreciated the importance of protecting special places for future generations.
