Dear Jessica, We are delighted that you all enjoyed the privacy at Minette Bay Lodge and Kitimat's ocean shorefront for your Terrace Administration's strategic meeting and dinner. It was a really great pleasure to host you all and to see the smiles and witness the relaxation. ... We gather that great works were done! Ruth and I much hope that we'll see you all, either individually with friends and family through 2019, or as a group, for more of what MBL has to offer. With very best wishes and many thanks. Yours, Howard and Ruth...and of course, Frank!

Dear Allison, Many thanks for your kind comments and poetic description! Ruth and I are delighted that the Terrace Administration team seemed to thoroughly relax, enjoying your workshop, dinner and breakfast, and the quiet nature of the experience down here on the shorefront in the falling snow. We much hope that you'll all be back to strategise again next year. With thanks and very best wishes. Yours, Howard, Ruth and Frank.

Good morning Mellisa. Many thanks for your enquiry and apologies that it wasn't picked up until today. We'd be pleased to do a group breakfast if that would work for yourself and friends, though the weather has turned autumnal now and so do bear us in mind for the Spring. With best wishes. Yours, Howard and Ruth.
