Get ready for a 5 part series showcasing the Shaw family of Sooke.
I’ll be covering the cougar hunting days, farming, trucking, logging, and the many contributions the Shaw family has made over the decades that helped shape our community and local economy.
The picture below is a snapshot of just one of the many memorable moments in time…
Ted Shaw – seen here in 1956 at Muir Creek Block 70 falling what would become the worlds tallest totem that still stands today in Beacon Hill Park. You’ll hear more about this in one of the series of 5 I’ll be starting next week.
