Denis Horgan, Vice President and General Manager of Westshore Terminals, came down to Point Roberts on May 23, 2013, with a big check in his pocket for the new library building fund. Here he presents the $10,000 check to members of the fund raising committee: Louise Cassidy, Judy Ross, Margot Griffeths, and Mark Robbins.
Horgan said that he sees Point Roberts and Delta as both part of the same community, and that he welcomes the chance to help build a new library for the Point. In light of shared history, geography, and activities, the international boundary is, in his view, just a procedural hurdle, not a real divider. He also acknowledged that coal dust from the Terminal pays no attention to the border. The Terminal is just completing a $8.5 million dollar upgrade to their dust control system, which should be in operation sometime this month. "Hope it works," he said.
