Oak Island Group's Fate To Be Decided Next Month

Some controversy brewing over the direction of The Oak Island Tourism Society.
A meeting on December 7th will consider a motion to dissolve the society.
Danny Hennigar, vice-chair of the group, tells CKBW the group no longer believes it can attain its goals of an interpretive centre, regular tours of the island, and a museum.
Hennigar says the group can't raise the needed funds.
Others in the community think the plan is viable.
Charles Barkhouse tried to join the group a year ago and he thinks the goals can be attained.
The group meets at Oak Island Inn at 2 pm on Monday, December 7th. If the group is dissolved, its assets will be transferred to the Chester Heritage Society.
