On February 28th members of the lodge began construction on the new out door BBQ shelter at Camp Pigott. This is the first permanent structure built entirely by T'Kope Kwiskwis lodge since the longhouse. The lodge membership has provided the design, the capital and now the labor behind this improvement project.
