Eileen Scott is Bamfield’s incredible mainstay. She has been involved in almost every project and organization in the community since her arrival in 1981. From chairing the Bamfield Community School Association and the Bamfield Community Hall Society to the countless hours she has devoted to the redevelopment of the Centennial Park and to its continuing improvement, functioning and upkeep, Eileen is treasured in her community. She arranges schedules, she helps manage the finances, she makes sure the tools are there, she organizes events, she rolls up her sleeves, she counsels, and at 87, she is still the first person to arrive and the last to leave. Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious.
