It is the type of honour that doesn’t come around every day, but in November Mattice area resident, 82-year-old Fred Neegan, was presented a plaque which will be mounted at a boat landing in the Missinaibi Park area, re-christening it “Frederick Neegan’s Landing.”

The inscription reads:

This landing along the banks of the Missinaibi River is a lasting tribute to Frederick Neegan, a local First Nations elder of Cree and Ojibway heritage. Fred grew up along the river and has trapped, hunted, fished and guided many canoeists to ensure their safe passage. He is always willing to share his knowledge of the Missinaibi River, and with his infectious smile, recount the many interesting stories he has of traveling up and down it. He is a true gentleman and is regarded as the “guardian of the Missinaibi.”
