Members of the various groups that rallied to save Quebec Lodge over the last several years took shelter from a massive thunderstorm on Saturday night in the very lodge they had come to inaugurate. Hailed by Quebec Lodge Foundation President Ruth Sheeran as, “an important milestone in the development of the Quebec Lodge outdoor centre,” the new Bodtker Lodge proved its worth as a space to celebrate and build community, even in less than ideal circumstances. “There are many people to thank,” Sheeran said, noting that the journey from the closing of the original camp to the opening of this new lodge, which marks a new beginning for overnight camping at Quebec Lodge, has been supported by everyone from an elementary school student who held a bake sale up to charitable foundations. Although emphasizing that she could not possibly thank everyone enough, the foundation president did make special mention of the Anglican Diocese of Quebec, which donated the original forested plot upon which the new camp has been built. “It was this extraordinary gesture which made our dream possible,” she said.
