Meet The Dixon Entrance Maritime Museum Society Board

In May of 2001, the Dixon Entrance Maritime Museum was born out of the keen dedication of a select group of community members with an unfettered love for discovering and sharing stories of how Masset came to be. After receiving a sizable collection of historical artifacts from local estates, it was apparent that a public display needed to be erected. Today, a board of volunteers direct the vision and mandate of the museum. The board's chairperson, Jen Bailey, is one of the many hard-working members who make the historical centre feasible. Like many Haida Gwaii residents, selfless dedication is a common theme. According to board member Lorrie Joron, the most admirable aspects of living in Haida Gwaii is the unwavering “depth and breadth of commitment to improving and celebrating the community.” Keep an eye out for the Dixon Entrance Maritime Museum's fundraisers - the Christmas Social!
