Fund raising, task-force

4 March 2023
2023 is the year that we have committed to establishing the funds to save The Hall of Clestrain. The plans for restoration are substantially complete.

The John Rae Society Board is in the process of being strengthened. The team will fulfil the goal.

The final delivery of the Archeology will be finished by Spring 2024 Then we need to start the restoration, after years of dreaming and planning.

We now need to GO GO GO
