SCT board member Dr. Bill McKelvie passed away suddenly this June. Ever true to his passion for nature and the outdoor life, Bill had been on the Gatineau River practising with his Cascade Club dragon boating team. As a psychologist, “Dr.” Bill lovingly integrated his insight and appreciation for humanity with all that nature had taught him during his formative years in the Colorado high plateaus. A recent arrival in Chelsea, Bill loved his life here and each summer brought his grandchildren from across the USA to share in his adventures in the Gatineau Hills. Bill’s wife Astrid Pregel has joined SCT in his place and hopes to help us realize Bill’s dream of connecting a trail from his beloved home in the Solitude/Link area to Chelsea’s centre-village.
