Art at Endswell, a thank you

Nicolette Mc Intosh of Endswell Farm and Bowen Children’s Centre (BCC) have had a long standing association of many, many years. For a decade the Preschool held their graduation at Endswell where after visiting the animals in the barn, Pat Buchannan hitched up a hay wagon and drove us all to the house where Buck and Nicolette hosted the graduates and teachers to hot dogs and ice cream.
Three of Nicolette’s grandchildren graduated from BCC and her daughter Fiona was the Executive Diretor for many years.
One of my favorite memories of Nicolette was when she was invited by her grandaughter, Georgia, to attend special person’s night at the Preschool (then located at Collins Hall.) Dressed to the nines, I found her by the easel, leaning over three year old Georgia’s shoulder as she painted and commenting in a favorable fashion on Georgia’s choice of colors. To hear Nicolette, a renowned painter, so encourage her grandaughter, touched me deeply.
Georgia is now in her final year at UBC and a fabulous actor.
The Board of the Bowen Children’s Centre would like to express their thanks, yet again, to Nicolette Mc Intosh for her tireless efforts and generosity on BCC’s behalf. The paintings and sculpture chosen for Art at Endswell were incredible - watch out David, I covet your dragon!
We also wish to thank the Bowen Island Community Foundation and especially Julia McCaig whose leadership and organizational skills kept us honest, Dee Elliott of Macdoanld Realty who did everything asked of her and more, The Office, Brian Park of The General Store, the BCC Fundraising team. and last but not least, the superb David Cameron who was the auctioneer of the century!
AND to all of you who came, ate, bought and, enjoyed.
The BCC Nicolette McIntosh Scholarship for professional development in the arts will be created in your, Nicolette. Thank you.

Anne Silberman and the BCC Board
