The 591 Whaletown Land Society has signed an agreement with Helene Racine, Whaletown postmistress, that guarantees the Post Office a long-term home if the land purchase is successful.

Our agreement with Helene includes:

* a 20-year lease for the post office at 591 Whaletown Road
* rent and utilities
* a commitment by 591 Society to pay for relocating the post office, out of funds raised in the current campaign
* guaranteed tenancy for the post office if the Society relinquishes title to another community organisation

To support this most recent Cortes legacy project through a one-time cash donation, a monthly pledge, or bridge financing (to be repaid via monthly pledges), please contact one of our Board members at
