Port Gamble Bay cleanup will begin with a blessing- Kingston Community News

Some good news. The restoration of a beautiful bay that has been impacted by 140 years of human activity. Now that the logs and logging have played out, the work continues to restore the health of this bay, which has been home to one of the S’Klallam tribes.

A ceremony will take place 10 a.m. to noon on July 23 at the former mill site to bless Port Gamble Bay. A two-year project to remove creosoted pilings and wood waste from 140 years of mill activity begins this month. Lloyd Fulton, S’Klallam elder and former mill worker, will open the ceremony with prayer. Welcoming remarks will be made by Fulton, Pope Resources CEO Tom Ringo, and Port Gamble S’Klallam Chairman Jeromy Sullivan. A prayer song will be offered, followed by a blessing of the land and water, and a Shaker prayer by Gene Jones. (Kingston Community News)
