For an organization that revels in an iconic television program that proclaimed at least once an episode, ‘Beam me up, Scotty’, we go time travelling to February, when Alberni Deep Space Port donated legacy funds to two community organizations.
Both the Alberni Valley Hospice Society and Alberni Community and Women’s Services (ACAWS) received $100 from Alberni Deep Space Port, which was founded in September 2012 and became a registered charity in December 2013. The Space Port is taking a different direction with different leadership, and has dissolved its charitable status, explains founder Gillian Shearwater. She along with Brett Davies and Jeanette Carnell made the final donations to Theresa Maxmenko of AV Hospice and Ellen Frood of ACAWS.
Shearwater will continue with the Starfleet Academy on a regional and international level; Starfleet is the educational component of the worldwide organization.
Alberni Deep Space Port will still continue as a fan club.
