Ed Robertson of the Bare Naked Ladies, and his wife Natalie, have been stepping up repeatedly to help local not-for-profit organizations since the pandemic hit!

First it was the North Hastings Community Cupboard, then the Village Playhouse and now, the Fish Hatchery Board of Directors is pleased to announce, the Hatchery is latest recipient of the Robertson’s generosity.

The Robertsons, who are residents of Baptiste Lake, have taken a keen interest in the community in the past, but have been especially willing to lend a hand over the past few months.

According to former Director, Steve Wilkins, Mayor Paul Jenkins was instrumental in encouraging the donation.

The funds received will go towards growing local fish for local lakes and the operation of the hatchery.

Thank you to the Robertson family!
