New Gibsons health unit opens

For the past 35 years, the health unit has been located in lower Gibsons near the Town Hall. The scissors from the opening of that space in 1981 were saved – along with a piece of the ribbon, which was used again to open the new health unit last week. Donna McMahon photo
