A Thank You from Chair John Hinksman, SN

The CPS Foundation thanks everyone, Districts, Squadrons and members who have given their support over the past year. We continue to maintain our $l,000,000 status, due to your donations and our conservative investment policy. We have adjusted our portfolio to recognize responsible stewardship of our planet, keeping in mind the importance of non-polluting companies of our waterways.

We continue to support CPS-ECP through funding of projects that keep the organization operating in a positive manner, and enable it to keep up with the many changes that continually test our abilities as an educational group. Now, more than any other time in our long history, it is important to keep up with advances in methods of delivering our message to the boating public and our members. We all need to work together to maintain our place and to grow so that present and future boaters will experience safe and happy times on the water.

Your Foundation provided CPS-ECP with over $40,000 last year, and is always ready to consider any requests for funding that benefit our whole Organization.

Thank you all again, and donít forget to fly our Flag proudly, and pass on who we are and what we do to anyone you can.

On behalf of the Directors and Members of The CPS Foundation, Erik Fabricius, Larry Hicks, Ghislain Arsenault, Sheila Boucher and Catherine Mcleod,
Yours truly,
John Hinksman, SN

The success of our Foundation depends upon each one of us!

Contribute to the CPS Foundation and Honour CPS-ECP Members

Cowichan Power and Sail Squadron has found a way to donate to The CPS Foundation while at the same time honouring members of the Squadron who have made a worthwhile contribution to CPS-ECP. The Squadron registers its life members in the Affinity Program so that each member who has achieved 20 Merit Marks and therefore a life membership in CPS-ECP have the memento of an Affinity Pin to recognize their service. For information on receiving an Affinity Pin visit our Affinity Pin page.
