Good work rewarded
Macy Laviolette receives a certificate to go swimming and skating from RCMP bike Const. Dave Scherr. Part of the positive ticketing program, a joint initiative between the RCMP and Nanaimo parks, recreation and culture, the program recognizes children who are doing good work. Laviolette served homemade lemonade to the 25 neighbours who turned out on Saturday to clean up the laneway that is bordered by Nicol, Needham and Watkins streets and Victoria Road.

A former North Oyster Elementary School student wants to see the school’s old lunch program put back on the menu. At the end of the school year, parents learned that provincial CommunityLink funding, which supported the school’s hot lunch program, was being re-allocated to instructional supports for students. In its place, the Nanaimo Foodshare Program will be providing meals at a cost of $3.75 per student whose need was identified by a take-home survey. School district representatives have said extra meals will also be available to students to ensure no child goes hungry. The meals previously cost $1.50 per student. Stacey MacAdam, North Oyster Parent Advisory Council member, is concerned that the cost will be too much for some families, and she is trying to fundraise about $30,000 by summer’s end to keep the hot lunch program in place. Terry Giannakos said he was spurred to action after reading about the issue. Giannakos attended North Oyster Elementary School through Grades 1-7. At the time, his father owned the Omega Restaurant on the outskirts of Ladysmith (now The Gryphon’s Lair). After 20 years away, Giannakos has returned as executive chef and manager of The Gryphon’s Lair and is interested in giving back to the community as his father did when he owned the restaurant. The restaurant is donating 25 per cent from all food purchases made at the restaurant Aug. 23 to the North Oyster Elementary School hot lunch program. Giannakos is also trying to pull together corporate sponsorships. In addition, Yellow Point Lodge has made a $900 donation to the cause. For more information or to help, please contact MacAdam at 250-667-2561.
