Haines ANS Camp 5 would like to say “thank you” to all who attended the George Mark plaque dedication Thursday, Aug. 5 on Haines Main Street. Twenty-plus people dropped in to pay their respects to this “world citizen” who shared his life with us for a short time and is missed.

Thank you to Deb and Chris Kemp for organizing this event; to sister Georgia Haisler for her words of wisdom on accountability on behalf of the Baha’I community; to Tlingit elder Joe Hotch for speaking on behalf of the Haines ANS; to Joann Ross-Cunningham and Leanne Converse for planting the beautiful flowers that now surround the plaque; and to all those that remembered George Mark with the kindest of words.

Georgiana Hotch, Haines ANS Council
