Be part of a vision

Reader says the Emily Carr Monument is something to be proud of.

Editor:

We know that most, if not all, of your readers love to visit the Chemainus murals. Many thousands have taken their family and friends to experience “The Little Town That Did.” Have they ever wondered how those projects come about?

For the first time in 30 years, your readers can now not only witness the creation of a mural but also take part in making it happen. At the same time, they can make a gift for life by sponsoring one of their loved ones, friends and family on the latest project, Chemainus’ s largest “MuralSculpture.” It is a great opportunity to give a wonderful present not only to friends and family, but also to Chemainus.

After several years of searching, imagining, planning and dreaming, we are ready to turn our vision of building a monument to Emily Carr into action. With your help, this dream will become a reality.

However, building a monument to one of the greatest female artists will take — in addition to tenacity, skill and determination — funding.

For only $5 (or more), you can become a lifetime member of our “Global Emily Carr Monument Family.” Simply visit our website at www.emilycarrmonument.ca  and register your membership by sending your investment and donation to: Emily Carr Monument, Box 488, Chemainus, B.C., V0R 1K0 or by using PayPal. It’s simple, and you will be contributing to a piece of history.

Joining our “Emily Carr Global Family” is something to be proud of, something you will be able to tell your children and grandchildren. You will have played an active part in creating an amazing artistic vision.

What a wonderful experience it will be to see this grow, as hundreds of individuals join our creative vision. A new social movement will be born — one whose progress will be tracked on our website day by day as it grows from country to country and culture to culture around the world.
