Thanks to a generous donation of time and materials from Totangi Properties and Jordan River Gravel,  the community of Jordan River now has two Welcome signs on Highway 14.

Attached to the top of the sign is a blue wave, referring to the surfer-friendly waves encountered on the Jordan River waterfront. Under the “Welcome to Jordan River” you see the name diitiida which refers to a large Pacheedaht village that once was located at the mouth of the Jordan River.

This first photo features Murray Tomkins and OPSRRA vice president Cheryl Wirch-Ryckman looking on as three friendly fellows from Totangi and Jordan River Gravel—Chris, Kale, and Billy—hoist a sign into position. This sign is at the northern boundary of Jordan River.

Below is a photo of OPSRRA vice president Cheryl Wirch-Ryckman standing in front of the new sign at the Jordan River – Shirley boundary.

Here are a few more photos of the sign raising.
