Quench was a smashing success

What a wonderful day it was on Friday for the unveiling of the Duncan Centennial Drinking Fountain! About 150 people showed up to witness Town Crier Ben Buss call the crowd to order and listen to speaker Dzawada’enuxw Chief Frank Nelson welcome the crowd. He and many of the family of sculptor Rande Cook were there to honour the fountain and the water it provides.

They sang an honour song, while the veil was raised. The song was powerful and profoundly moving. People had tears in their eyes.

The first Official Drink was taken by Mr. Ken Slade of Drillwell Enterprises, who drilled Duncan’s water wells 40 years ago.  The second official drink was taken by “Tony” the RCMP  Dog, to great applause!
