THE NEW BAMFIELDER PROJECT

Welcome to The New Bamfielder! Work with us to make our village more family friendly!

The New Bamfielder is more than a community newspaper. We want to get people thinking about opportunities for the young people of Bamfield and Anacla. All donations to the newsletter go toward the Bamfield Community School Association New Bamfielder youth programs.

Our Objective: to provide Anacla and Bamfield students with extracurricular opportunities not normally available to our small student body.
The Project: to support our students in their pursuit of creative activities by providing guidance and enlightening experiences. For example, a student interested in music could have an instrument rented, receive instruction, and visit an inspiring professional.

TNB Report Card is mighty old – January 2014. It would be nice to have a new one. Here is the one from 2014. "Since the first issue in June 2011, 80-120 copies have been distributed monthly through local shops and the Post Office. Online hits have climbed from 555 for the first posted issue, January 2012, to just short of 2000 in December 2013. Donations to December 2013 totaled $2622. This last year we have focused on music: Ali Marsman held group sessions on music and one-on-one piano lessons for two months with all our students, and Scale Shore gave three ukulele sessions (we’re looking forward to her return early this year).  Thank you readers for making this possible.   - LDD"

Thanks to Heather Washburn, Associate Editor/Web Master, the online issue allows us to document the brief articles, publish minutes of Bamfield Community Affairs, announce goings-on at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre, and the Village of Anacla. Photo Journalist Marc Phillip and many others have provided photos. Marc often makes beautiful collages of Bamfield events..

The New Bamfielder is a group effort resulting from conversations and interviews by Editor Dr Louis Druehl and others, plus regular contributions from many Bamfield organizations—as we march through the issues. We welcome your contributions.

The purpose of The New Bamfielder is to provide a monthly forum for Bamfield’s celebrations, people and issues. The success of this paper depends on contributions from the reading public. So, please, submit your thoughts (brevity is essential). Classifieds are accepted (no commercial ads). Submit to ldruehl@island.net.

The New Bamfielder is free but you are encouraged to contribute to the Bamfield Community School Association New Bamfielder youth programs. Anacla and Bamfield Youth oriented projects sponsored and monies raised will be published on this web site. You may contribute using PayPal or by cash or cheque (payable to BCSA, please include the phrase Bamfielder Youth on your cheque) in person at the BCSA office or by mail: BCSA, General Delivery, Bamfield, BC, V0R 1B0.  Thank you!

We welcome individuals and businesses who wish to co-sponsor youth-oriented projects. Let us have your ideas or explore our projects and we will make a difference. Enjoy, digest, respond! Contact information via e-mail is in the text above.
