‘The Celtic Connection was a lifeline for so many’

KEVIN and Stephanie Boggan have been long-time volunteers, not only delivering The Celtic Connection newspaper, but also supporting many other local Irish clubs organizations throughout the Vancouver Lower Mainland.

Dear Maura and Catholine,

BOWEN ISLAND – It was quite sad to read that The Celtic Connection paper is finishing but the way things are we totally understand.

Kevin and I started chatting and remembering all the years Kevin delivered the paper. It was a lifeline for so many folks and it kept us informed on what was happening in our community.

The paper was so helpful when our Clare was diagnosed with cancer in Edinburgh and we were stuck there for five months and folks helped us out.

Also when Clare was trying to raise funds for her cancer treatment in Mexico another article helped her out immensely.

I hope something can be done on the sharing of information online down the road.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done.

All the best,

Kevin and Stephanie Boggan

Bowen Island, B.C.
