Nunavut Tunngavik Inc Donates to Arviat Community Organizations

NR 00-27 ARV ENG Arviat Donation.doc

Arviat, Nunavut (November 17, 2000) Acting President of Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI), James Eetoolook, presented a cheque for $1,440 to Arviat Minor Hockey Association during a community feast held as part of the events connected to the NTI Annual General Meeting.

We have a delegate and two AGM technicians billeted with a host, Joe Baines, who requested that instead of paying him for billeting, NTI contribute the money to the hockey association, said Eetoolook. Arviat is fortunate to have such community minded people here. Joe Baines is a model for the community and the people of Arviat should be very proud of his generosity.

The Hockey Association has been fundraising to assist players who otherwise could not afford to register.

Nearly ninety delegates, staff and support personnel are in Arviat for the AGM, which runs from November 14 through 17. NTI also made donations to the District Education Authority and to the Arviat Sivullinuut.
