INSPIRATIONAL MOMENTS

 

“One’s Nativity is not of his own choosing, but whatever it may be, it is entitled to respect; and all nations have honorable place in the world’s family.

One’s religion os one’s own possession and he has a right to it.

When an individual, a sect, a clique or a nation hates and despises another individual, sect, clique or nation, he or they simply do not know the objects of their hatred. Ignorance is at the bottom of this”.

Paul Harris

LULU ISLAND MOMENT

 

In 1861 Hugh McRoberts, a native of Belfast, Ireland, was Richmond’s first permanent settler on Sea Island and the first to make improvements on the islands. He built  his house in 1862 fifty yards from the Fraser River bank about a mile and a half from now Marpole. Hugh McRoberts was the first to build a house, plant an orchard, and build the first dykes in Richmond. His was the first farm and was known as Richmond Place and Richmond Farm. At its peak the farm occupied nearly half of Sea Island. Hugh McRoberts, pioneer,  passed away in July of 1883 at the age of 67.
