The following email was received by Clan Maclean Atlantic from the The Ship Hector Foundation:
"The Ship Hector Foundation exists to raise funds in support of the Ship Hector project.
We've been there from the days of laying the keel, to the magnificent launch event and
all her days since as a dockside attraction. We know that the money we've raised has
contributed to a rebirth of sorts and, over the years, has generated millions of dollars
in economic benefit for the town, county and province. The Hector is as important to
our future as it was in 1773.
We're working to ensure the Hector Heritage Quay - and Pictou - is open for business.
We need your help.
Please sign our petition and forward this to your friends. The more support we have the
better our chances of turning the tide."
