Vandals ransack Lake Cowichan Scout camp

Lake Cowichan RCMP reports a local Scouts Canada camp was vandalized last week. In a press release dated Aug. 16, detachment commander Sgt. Wes Olsen reported the Woodland Scout and Guide Camp, located on the North Arm of Cowichan Lake, was ransacked “between 3 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.” on Tuesday, Aug. 13.

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A3

Tables and chairs in the camp shelter were overturned, bottles were smashed and litter was tossed about on the grounds, and a trailer located onsite was broken into prior to having its windows broken and “liquids” spilled inside. Olsen called the incident “a senseless act of vandalism,” adding the camp in question is “for the benefit of youth learning life skills and experi-

encing nature in a camp setting.” Olsen said waterfront homes located along Creekside Drive and Miracle Way have a clear line of sight to Woodland Scout Camp across the waters of the north arm of the lake. Olsen advised anyone with information to contact the Lake Cowichan RCMP at 250-749-6668 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Fair dedication just part of life for Pringle Tie a ribbon: Forty-year volunteer favours the produce section, as venerable Cobble Hill Fair prepares for 104th edition

Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

F

or Cobble Hill’s Romey Pringle, the Cobble Hill Fair is not an event she gets too terribly excited about. Maybe it’s because it’s such a standard staple in her yearly calendar of activities. Or that she’s spent the past 40 years volunteering for the country fair. Or possibly because she grew up living on farms, surrounded by animals and produce. The goings-on at the fair are simply a way of life for the 79-year-old. But Pringle, who’s known around the fairgrounds as the Ribbon Lady, has a big hand in organizing the fair’s batches of ribbons for all its events and many categories. Pringle spent her childhood in Shawnigan Lake and has lived in Victoria and Cowichan Station before moving to Cobble Hill in 1972. “She discovered the Cobble Hill Fair as a child and took an immediate interest in the annual celebration,” said fair organizers in a press release. “The family had a small farm and her father started entering events showing off his fine vegetables and flowers. Not to be outdone, Romey, in her early teens, brought her own lettuce to the fair and won first prize for growing the three and a half pound vegetable.” Pringle doesn’t remember that hunk of lettuce. “If I hadn’t gotten that picture of me with the lettuce, I wouldn’t have remembered it at all,” said Pringle. When thinking back to her childhood, she does recall her father

donating flowers to the fair and entering sweat peas in the competition. “We had 10 acres then, and he gave me a little plot to grow some things myself,” explained Pringle, noting she was between about 12 and 16 when they’d lived in Cowichan Station. The fair tradition carried on with Pringle as the years passed. “The experience planted a desire to be a part of the fair community and Romey has been involved as a volunteer for more than 40 years,” fair organizers said of Pringle’s lettuce win and the years of participation and volunteerism that followed. “For several years she was treasurer of Shawnigan Cobble Hill Farmers Institute and Agricultural Society, and for the past decade has been responsible for the rosettes and prize ribbons. Romey’s interest in the society and fair has been passed down to two daughters who also volunteer.” Although Pringle doesn’t like the attention given to her for the work she’s done for the community’s annual shindig, there’s a slight twinkle in her eyes when she speaks of her favourite part of the fair. “I’ve always liked vegetable gardening. Even living in Victoria, I had veggies,” she said. “I’m not really all that interested in the animals. I like to go in the halls and see what they’ve got in there.” She’s also got a few possible ribbon winners growing in her garden, but wouldn’t disclose what’s she entering. “It should be pretty good this year,” she said.

Pringle remains an active member of the Shawnigan Cobble Hill Farmers Institute and Agricultural Society, and also gives her time to other community organizations including the Mill Bay Food Bank, South Co-

wichan Visitor Information Centre and the Shawnigan Lake Museum. She was also recognized by fair organizers this spring for a lifetime of volunteering with a special award. The 104th annual edition of the fair takes place Aug. 24. “This year the fair’s theme is, ‘What’s the Buzz’ (honouring) bees and their value to agriculture,” states Shawnigan-Cobble Hill Farmers’ Intitute and Agricultural Society president George Baird.

his year’s Cowichan River clean-up saw fewer volunteers take part. But any disappointment on that end was quickly countered by the fact there was less garbage to clean up. Cowichan Lake and River Stewardship Society president Gerald Thom said this year’s two-day clean-up resulted in about 90% of the river being cleaned. Day one saw the top portion of the river swept, from the weir to Sandy Pools in Sahtlam. Day two took the volunteers from Sandy Pools to the Cowichan estuary. This year one tonne of garbage was cleaned from the river, while less than 4,000 recyclable articles were removed. Thom described this as a large improvement from last year’s 1.7 tonnes of garbage and more than 4,000 recyclables. “Beer cans, and broken inflatable rubber rafts are probably the most common items,” said Thom. “I think people are becoming more responsible, and I think the river clean-up events help raise the awareness.” He said — like in just about any other similar situation —it is usually a small number of people who

The greatest find this year was a heritage rowboat, which could not be removed because it was filled with sand. “In past years we have had more

interesting items,” says Thom. “I think we are slowly getting most of the interesting stuff out of the river.” Once again, the members of Sundown Diving Club in Nanaimo joined the volunteers, and scoured the river bottom for items. The Cowichan Valley Regional District provided insurance for the volunteers, and allows the river cleanup garbage to be dumped for free. BRI Security provides radios so the river clean-up team could communicate with one another.

A lone motorcycle travelling north on Pacific Marine Road Monday, Aug. 5, lost control in loose gravel and veered into the ditch near South Shore Road, leaving its male driver and female passenger with “non-life threatening injuries,” states an RCMP press release. The RCMP’s investigation revealed excessive speed and alcohol were not contributing factors in the late-afternoon incident and “no charges are being contemplated.” Meanwhile, a wheelchair stolen from the Eldred Road area of Lake Cowichan July 21 has yet to be located, the RCMP report. The chair, described as an older, nonelectric model with a “brown back and a seat made partially of wood,” was last seen being wheeled away by two males and a female. Anyone privy to the chair’s whereabouts is asked to contact Lake Cowichan RCMP at 250-749-6668.

Base decision on what’s best for agriculture

Balme Ayr Farm: Project appears good for farming

T

here are compelling arguments to be made against the Balme Ayr Farms gravel pit proposal. There are enough working gravel pits in the valley to give credence to the idea this might lessen the quality of life in the neighbourhood. And the epidemic of illegal soil dumping operations in Cowichan is certainly proof of the Ministry of the Environment’s inability to police the related issues of dumping and fill. Despite this, we can’t help but feel Cobble Hill farmers Oliver and Shelley Balme were handed a raw deal by the Cowichan Valley Regional District. The couple’s proposal is relatively Other consimple: a portion of their farm is not cerns second- farmable because it is gravel. Their plan is to remove the gravel over a ary in this period of 15 years and replace it with equation clean fill, suitable for cattle pasture. Remember, this property is actually bisected by the highway. It’s not as though traffic is a foreign entity. Remember as well there are several examples of gravel pit operations in similar neighbourhoods —both in Cowichan and throughout the south island. Finally, remember the Balmes are farmers who want to farm the reclaimed land. They have more of a vested interest in keeping contaminated soil out than anyone. Essentially, the idea is a win for farming because it creates agricultural land where none currently exists. It’s a win for the economy because it opens up a new source for a material that is constantly in demand. And it’s a win for the Balmes, who turn a liability for their farm into an asset in both the short and long term. And we think this community needs to do a better job of supporting farmers and keeping agriculture healthy. Ultimately, the Agricultural Land Commission will decide. We hope they take the concerns into account, but ultimately decide based on what’s best for agriculture.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like

Thank you Spooksvile for your pleasant stay in the valley. From all reports, the television production has been an excellent neighbour, as filming progressed throughout the community these past few months. And it’s nice to hear the cast and crew feel the same way about us. Here’s hoping the program is a success. Come back anytime. And don’t forget to tell your friends.

North Cowichan needs to generate other revenue Robert Douglas

News Leader Pictorial

T

he Echo Heights saga may finally be coming to an end. North Cowichan council recently passed a motion to develop 20% of the 54-acre parcel of municipallyowned land in Chemainus. The proposal will soon go to the public for discussion, with a final decision likely coming down the pipe in early 2014. The good news for many is an earlier plan that would have seen 40% of Echo Heights turned into 200-plus residential units has basically been scrapped. But many are asking why develop any of the parcel when so many in the community want it preserved as parkland? North Cowichan needs cash to finance other projects, and roughly $3 million could be made by sub-dividing part of Echo Heights and selling it as lots.

Some of these projects that require financing are clearly worthwhile. The question is should we develop part of Echo Heights for a onetime cash infusion? Or are there better ways to generate new sources of municipal revenue? The problem facing North Cowichan and so many other municipalities across Canada is we have become overly dependent on property taxes. During the past three years alone, property taxes as a percentage of the total North Cowichan budget have increased from 43% to 48% — or approximately $23.6 million to $28.7 million. And we are not alone. Other municipalities across Canada have introduced similar tax increases to cover growing operating and infrastructure costs, due in large part to senior government downloading more responsibilities without providing adequate funding. Making the situation all the more challenging is municipalities are extremely limited in the ability to raise revenue, relying almost exclusively on property taxes, fees for services,

The idiocy of the vandal has been a frequent target in this space. Unfortunately, we don’t expect that to change any time soon. The recent attack on the Scout camp near Lake Cowichan is the latest sickening work of the pod people. How this action hurts anyone other than innocent children and volunteers, we’re not sure. Do what you can to help the police catch these and all such idiots.

and transfers from the federal and provincial governments. North Cowichan needs new tools to raise revenue. A good start would be to look at those communities across North America that have been the most creative in this area. In the U.S.A., almost 300 municipalities are bringing in income by offering cable, telephone services, and high-speed Internet access at costs lower than the private sector. Hundreds of other municipalities are generating revenue by becoming involved in the venture capital market, investing and acquiring stock in small and medium-sized businesses with strong potential to grow. And across Canada, numerous municipalities own their own energy utilities. Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, Ottawa and Saskatoon collectively raked more than $330 million straight into municipal coffers through energy sales and other services last year alone.

Revelstoke operates its own heating system fuelled with wood waste, heating buildings in the downtown core. North Vancouver sells energy through its own district heating system fuelled by a combination of natural gas, ground source heat pumps and solar energy. Whether these models are the right fit for North Cowichan is certainly up for debate. There may be other better options. Either way, if we want to reduce the pressure on North Cowichan and other municipalities to continuously raise property taxes and to develop natural spaces such as Echo Heights, then we need to explore other options for raising municipal revenue.

Help in Cowichan for those recovering from brain injury

Study shows speed is not the problem on the Malahat

Dear editor If you read the MoT’s Malahat Corridor Study you will see speed accounted for only 11% of collisions on the Malahat, a statistic conveniently forgotten by the “speed kills” lobby. Sebastian Berry Comments submitted at cowichannewsleader.com

In my opinion: Time, effort and support from peers can help you recover

All the improvements in the world won’t protect you from this guy

Dear editor I have had a Class II license and have driven bus, truck and some machines. I have learned defensive driving techniques from driving school and many years of experience. My wife Susan and I have witnessed many very bad drivers and very aggressive drivers on the highways. Today was a bit different. We were on the way through Goldstream Park in the outside lane. It was coming to an end and we had to merge. I looked into the rear view mirror and see a ¾-ton truck coming up pretty fast, I had no alternative but to merge. This truck kept on coming. It just muscled its way right into the small space in front of us all the while honking his horn. I had to practice some pretty fancy safe driving to avoid crashing both into the truck and the rock cliff on the right. The truck continued to tailgate the vehicle in front of him. We called 911. The police did go to his home. They did speak with him but he talked his way out of taking responsibility for the incident. If I wasn’t a good driver, perhaps two more people would have been dead on the Malahat. All the barriers or safety precautions highways is trying to put up on the Malahat mean nothing because that driver is still out there and still being aggressive. If you see or experience one of these idiots, please take their license number down and report them. Someone you know, or even you, may die. Herb Rice

Investigators determine Duck Pond death due to natural causes

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Body identified as Lake Cowichan man: Michael Lawler had been out on his morning walk, prior to his body being discovered in town park Nick Bekolay

News Leader Pictorial

T

he death of 78-year-old Michael Lawler in a community park Aug. 13 resulted from natural causes, the B.C. Coroners’ Service states. Barb McLintock of the BCCS’s Victoria office stated the BCCS “waived its interest” in investigating Lawler’s sudden

death due to the fact that “it was a completely natural death.” A Lake Cowichan resident, Lawler had apparently been out for his morning walk before another local resident discovered him lying on the ground in Riverside Park near the Duck Pond, and contacted emergency services. The BCCS conferred with Lawler’s physician following his death and it was agreed that, given his medical history, his death was due to

natural causes, McLintock said. The physician in question then signed the medical certificate, effectively ending the BCCS’s involvement in the case, McLintock added. The Lake Cowichan RCMP stated foul play was not suspected and police involvement in the case is completed, Sgt. Wes Olsen said. “His stories will be missed by his sons, brothers, grandkids, nieces and nephews,”

an obituary notice sent to the Gazette reads, before advising readers they can forward their condolences to Lawler’s friends and family via email at dmlawler@shaw.ca. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and TB Vets. “An open house will be announced at a later date,” the notice concludes.

Savouring the Babymoon

Midwife’s advice: wrapping yourself in an early-stage cocoon can help with breastfeeding

Want to load up the family home a car and hit the road? cocoon where it’s Don’t bury your head, it’s comfortable and possible quiet that first week home. If outside help with breastfeeding is needed, however, it should be sought right away. “There are quite a variety of services available locally,” Boily said, noting public health breastfeeding clinics, Matraea’s breastfeeding sessions, great books like Bestfeeding: How to Breastfeed Your Baby, and researching advice from folks like Canada’s breastfeeding guru Jack Newman. “And find a friend, someone who you can trust and who has similar challenges as you,” she said. Also honour your partner’s support as they can help with getting the baby to latch, fluffing pillows, or, as the joke indicates, mom’s in charge of the input and dad the output. “Most importantly, moms need to take care of themselves as well. Nutrition and sleep are key,” she said advising moms to have at least seven hours of sleep in a 24-hour window (likely not in a row, but in total, nonetheless) and to snack away on high protein foods like avocados and nuts. “It takes more calories to breastfeed than it did to make the baby,” Boily explained. What it all comes down to really is surrendering to this new schedule. “You surrender to your momma time.”

abymoon. It’s an unique term, one that sums up a very realistic analogy created by Cowichan Midwifery Group’s Selina Boily. “When you get married, you and your partner go on a honeymoon. When you have a baby, there’s the babymoon,” Boily explains of the spiel she gives clients often before the baby’s born to prepare them for that first week home and breastfeeding. “You would not invite your entire family to your honeymoon, so why would you to your babymoon?” Ashley Degraaf Case in point, most moms often don’t feel Cowichan midwife Selina Boily could write the book about preparing for breastfeeding. comfortable bearing down to breastfeed when their grandfather’s around, Boily said. “It’s just after they’re born). there’s going to be frustration not going to happen.” “Most women often assume it’s natural.

A Family in Focus Meet: the Atchisons Haley is owner/operator of Haley Atchison Hair Design, Andrew is an electrical contractor owning a company based out of Victoria. Together they have two children, Adyn (5) and Eli (2) What’s your strategy for balancing work and family? We have a great support system. Most of our family lives in the valley and we can call on them day and night. A group of great friends that are always up for a play date and “Maple Tree Playhouse Daycare” are all key to making it work.

Tell us about a big parenting challenge you faced and how you solved it? Getting our children to eat healthy food can be tricky. Apparently they think I feed them poison. Getting Adyn involved in writing the grocery list and making choices in the store has been a big help. As for Eli, for now he will just live on berries and dirty carrots right out of the garden. What’s the most laugh-out-loud thing your kid ever said or did? “Mom I’m done with this hard boiled egg, I’m eggs-austed.” Name a local resource every parent needs to know about. I attended Moms Morning Out at United Church for a few years when my boys were young and that was a great way to meet new people. What do you and/or your partner do to make time for yourself? I am lucky enough to have quite a few girl friends in walking distance and we try to walk weekly and mix in a few girls nights out too. Andrew plays hockey, thinks about fishing and goes to the gym. The best advice another parent ever gave you? 1. Ask for help when you need it and you will need it 2. See the humour in everything whenever possible.

There’s still time to enjoy summer with your toddler Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

L

et’s be honest, when you take your toddler anywhere, there’s always going to be a ton of stuff to pack. But it’s a little more true during summer months and when you’re taking off on vacations, camping trips, or even visits to the beach or say a water park. Thankfully, there are tipsters and folks with advice on how to make preparing for those trips a tad easier. Summer Vacations “No new parent wants to leave the side of their little ones, but travelling with an infant brings on a whole new set of challenges and requirements,” says Amanda Spakowski, birth doula and founder of Nesting Place in a press release on how to simply travel. “Babies may be small, but they can be high maintenance, so planning ahead and creating a checklist of must-have items can help lighten the load and allow for a stress-free trip.” If you’re road-tripping it, buy removable window shades for your car to block out sun and heat as well as use a rear-facing car seat for better safety. “Bring a bag containing a few of your baby’s favourite toys to keep them happy and distracted, as well as a blanket for park visits.” Camping

Parental Guidance

“At (Mountain Equipment Co-op) we are strong supporters of self-propelled, low-impact, leave-no-trace camping. But hey, we’re also realists. We know that camping with kids is not the same as traversing the Homathko Icefield,” says MEC’s website. “To keep your family keen and yourself sane, car camping might just be the easiest way to introduce them to the joys of living outdoors.” Their advice for first-time camping trips with children includes picking campgrounds early and making reservations, choosing sites with amenities (flush toilets, hot showers, fire pits, and running water make life easier), scheduling short drives for first trips, and having back-up plans in case weather goes sideways. As for packing, “the super-organized can even pre-cut veggies and pack appropriate portions for each meal,” their website advises. “Make sure every child has their own flashlight. And don’t worry about over-packing, let your kids bring a few extra luxuries.” Beach/Park Trips “The toddler years are a great time to head to the beach,” states an advice column on modernmom.ca. “Toddlers typically love building sandcastles, playing in the waves and running on the beach. However, if you don’t pack the right items, your trip can be stressful and require last minute runs to the store.” There’s a smattering of websites offering checklists for beach/park day trips, but modernmom’s site simply advises parents pack extra clothing, extra bathing suits, SPF sun shirts, sunscreen, hats, towels, regular diapers and swim diapers. And a snack and a sippee with water’s probably a good idea, too.

A Big Thank You and Update on Cowichan Food Connection (The Bread Van)

Ashley Degraaf

Don’t be burying your heads and throwing up your hands if you want to take your little ones out to enjoy what’s left of summer.

Annual Bedding

Sale August 1-31

L to R: Foster Thorpe-Doubble from T.D. Repairs, Charles Lukas from CFC, David Jones from Peninsula CO-OP and Robert Nikirk from OK Tire Cowichan Food Connection has been in the charity food delivery business and has a history of service for over 20 years. At present Weston Bakery has now asked us to handle Nanaimo and pick up bread in Victoria starting September 1. To do this we’ve had to get big Bertha back on the road again. Thanks to a generous donation of $6000 from Peninsula CO-OP and a big Discount from Berks Intertruck Duncan we have a new rebuilt engine in her. Thanks to Robert Nikirk from OK Tire we have great new tires and Bertha has had loving care and a very generous discount from Foster of TD Repairs in Chemainus. We have a re-certified Breadtruck back in service! We can now go from delivering 2500 loaves a week to over 5000!!! But to do this this we are desperately looking for volunteer drivers and swampers to help load and unload the bread because we’re going to be back to delivering 70 charities year. We also badly need financial help. Gas alone is at present running over $2000 a month and then adding back on the big truck on now is very expensive. Expenses will be much higher than we can afford.

Also we do require chains for the Malahat. Your donations of either time or money would be greatly appreciated and Charity receipts are available. For larger donations if you like we can put your name/logo on the trucks so that the community knows who keeps us going. Thank you to Excellent Framing for once again being gracious in assisting us with the new spectacular E J Hughes Gallery calendars that will be coming out shortly. Please read the News Leader for further developments of this major fundraiser. We also need to thank Duncan Rotary for their cube van donation which kept us going this year to allow us to still be on road. A BIG thanks to the Ladysmith Lions for their steady and unwavering continuous support since we began all this so many years and 1,000,000’s of loaves ago. And most of all thanks to Bill and Kim of the Cowichan News Leader for continuing to help run CFC. Please direct inquires to them at 250 746-4471 or office@ cowichannewsleader.com We hope that Bill Abraham and Harold Nikirk are watching from above since we lost them this year and they were original believers & creators and steadfast supporters of CFC.

y the way, did you hear: • Chef Fatima da Silva’s Flash FEED Mob Part 2 was a huge success, raising $7,013.74 to be allocated to several local food banks and $800 in non-perishable food items. Among those going above and beyond to make it happen: CVRD directors Loren Duncan and Gerry Giles, North Cowichan councillors Al Siebring and Jen Woike, Island Savings Centre staffers like John Elzinga, and Jamie Rigby, Jim Harnden of the Duncan Lions Club, the Duncan Rotary, the Kinsmen, the Duncan branch of the TD Canada Trust, especially Michael Green and Kayla Peters, and the Duncan Fire Department. A key to the event’s success was the Cowichan Chefs Table Bake Sale featuring food from chef Bill Jones of Deerholme Farm, chef Marisa Goodwin of Organic Fair, chef da Silva (of Bistro 161) chef Janice Mansfield of Real Food Made Easy, and chef Matt Horn of Cowichan Pasta. • Duncan’s Pat Fiddis said she wonders if anyone else in the valley has a taller sunflower than hers, which stands at 11.5 feet. “Certainly not a record with the Guinness Book of World Records, but very tall, nevertheless,” she said.

Valley people Name: Robin Millan Occupation: artist, retired bureaucrat Age: 61 Hometown: London, Ontario If you get a chance go see: I rarely go to movies Right now I am reading: PD James, The Private Patient I’m listening to: acoustic guitar instrumentals At least once everyone should: see and be impressed by the Kinsol Trestle Most people don’t know I: am really an open book — if you know me, you know about me Proudest or happiest moment: my daughter makes me proud for 37 years Biggest fear: I’m fearless If I was appointed queen of the valley I would: build a highway around Duncan.

• With the purchase of the old Phoenix Station Motor Inn safely complete, Cowichan Green Community has launched a fundraising campaign to start beautifying the building. Executive director Judy Stafford tells us loyal CGC supporter Sandy McPherson is spearheading the Communitree Building Beautification Campaign, until Sept. 27. Local artist Henk Scholten has created a banner in the image of a tree. As the building beautification fund grows, we will see the tree ‘leaf out’ in $100 and $500 increments. People who donate $100 or more can have their name on a leaf. Fundraising chairwoman Nadeane Nelson says go to cowichangreencommunity.org for details. • Finally, a quick clarification on last week’s Valley People profile: Anna Tibbetts and Sonja Todd are two of the partners who have recently purchased Hilary’s Cheese from Hilary and Patty Abbott. But the name of the popular Cowichan Bay business remains Hilary’s Cheese. Best of luck for the future to the owners, past and present. Exciting things happening for you, your friends or your family that you want to share with your community? Send me a quick email at editor@cowichannewsleader.com. We’d love to spread the word.

magine an organization which has donated funds for more than 65 consecutive years to support cancer patient care, research and equipment. Now imagine the commitment of thousands of members hosting socials and teas, bazaars, raffles and other fund-raisers, as well as giving freely of their time to meet their charitable goals. According to Ruth Foster, Director of Cancer Activities for the O.E.S., “There are four categories of annual giving: educational bursaries, equipment, supplies and Cancer Dressings.” Last year, $8,362.29 was collected from the sale of cancelled stamps and postcards throughout British Columbia and Yukon to be distributed for Cancer Research or Cancer Dressings, wherever it is needed. (We must thank our friends in the community for keeping us well supplied with stamps.) Sunset Chapter #44, Duncan has one of our 39 Cancer Dressing Stations, located downstairs in the Mercury Theatre on Brae Road, Duncan. Last year, throughout our jurisdiction, 170 dedicated members volunteered 8120 hours producing 69,708 cancer dressings at a cost of $9,599.91. (We’ve used up inventory on hand, which once again reduced expenses. There is a need for dressings in Northern BC, so these numbers will likely increase next year.)

p m a St Out r e c n a C

Presently, sterilization is only being done by certain Hospitals and Clinics by trained and qualified staff in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna andd Prince George. The present method of distribution on is - the hospital staff will give the patient a supplyy of cancer dressings to take home. Local cancer patients requiring dressings are asked to contact the Canadian Cancer Society Office at 250-746-4134. Cancer is a dreadful disease without the added burden of the expense of dressings often required. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHARGE TO THE PATIENT. All that is required is a doctor’s referral. By supporting our Stamp Project, attending bazaars and teas, the Cabaret Night or buying tickets on our annual Cancer Draw, you enable us to continue our efforts in the fight against cancer. We’ve had a Polar Swim each February since 2005, first at Transfer Beach in Ladysmith and starting this year, at Departure Bay in Nanaimo. Thanks to pledges/donations, the members willing to brave the chilly water, have raised over $50,000.00 for Cancer Projects. Please drop off your used stamps at the Cowichan News Leader/Pictorial Office between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, Mon. to Fri., #2-5380 Trans Canada Hwy., the United Steelworkers Office, 351 Brae Road, or the local Cancer Office, #100-394 Duncan Street. NB: Our Stamps Dealers dictate how the stamps are to be trimmed, so we are asking our friends in the community NOT to TRIM stamps off envelopes. Just leave the stamps intact and we’ll do the rest. We don’t want any stamps to be spoiled. Thanks.

Crofton brings the Wiggly back

ON STAGE

Summer Choir hosts summer show

Look who’s wriggling back into the valley this weekend.

The dance-happy music starts at 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23 in Crofton. Tickets are $10.

Some of the best musical talent on southern Vancouver Island returns to Duncan Friday.

Jazz festival set to transform Waterwheel Park Second-annual: International-level talent and rare atmosphere collide in Chemainus Ashley Degraaf

A

n event billed as being so surreal it’s almost magical is set to sweep the Chemainus Waterwheel Park’s bandshell stage Aug. 24. It is the second-annual Chemainus Jazz Festival, organizer Kathy Wachs describes in such an alluring way. “In the evening, with the lights on at the park, the sun just going down, and with the bandshell nestled in among these huge Douglas firs, and there are people bringing their dogs, and the music is just superb,” Wachs said as she envisions what’s in the works for the evening performances of a day jam-packed with jazz artists from all over Canada. “We’ve been thinking for quite a long time that we’d like to have this, and with some jazz lovers on the board, and we figured there was an audience there for jazz,” Wachs, board chair of the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society, said. “So last year it started as the Queen’s Jubilee Jazz Festival as we got a small grant to commemorate the diamond jubilee and this year, it’s just the Chemainus Jazz Festival.” This year’s lineup includes long-time veterans, sisters Christine and Ingrid Jensen, Phil Dwyer, Stu Salmond with Tony Genge, Zandra Burns and Paul Wainwright. And the timing couldn’t have been more perfect, with the festival following the weekend both Christine “These ladies and Phil Dwyer held instrucare international Jensen tional type camps with students, who stars on the jazz are now set to hone their skills on the bandshell stage. scene.” “What I’d like to see is some of these veterans on stage with some of VIU students as well,” said Wachs, also noting students from Vancouver Island University will be attending. Manitoba’s Zandra Burns will kick the festival off with a performance at 1 p.m. Later, Montreal-based saxophonist and composer Christine Jensen — described by Globe and Mail’s Mark Miller as an original voice on the international jazz scene, and one of Canada’s most compelling composers — will

We’re really excited to have them,” said Wachs. A number of artists will hop on and off stage, before a finale by Stu Salmond and an encore jazz jam with whichever artists are left and feeling into it, explained Wachs. Admission to the event is by a suggested donation of $15 and a “small army” of volunteers will be on hand Satur-

day, serving food and assisting festival participants. Those who are familiar with the bandshell will also notice new acoustic lining to the stage’s shell. “You hear a difference. And it really makes a difference with the musician,” said Wachs. “They can hear themselves better and they’re confident in how they sound, so they can really let it rip.” Organizers ask folks bring their own lawn chairs.

A stage education tale of Cowichan and Kitchener Two Cities: Musical production of Dickens brings Cowichan quartet to Ontario Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

Hanna Seinen, Sarah Kaufmann and Ellen Reimer travelled to Ontario to participate in a production of A Tale of Two Cities.

Three Cowichan singers, and a music teacher were expecting to have a Dickens of a time last weekend during an Ontario production of A Tale Of Two Cities. Sarah Kaufmann, Hanna Seinen, and Ellen Reimer — who all travelled to Chilliwack’s recent provincial competitions — are slated to attend workshops and rehearsals toward the Canadian premiere of author/composer Jill Santoriello’s Broadway production Aug. 16

to 18. Local theatre teacher Tilly Lorence of the Chalkboard Theatre is choreographing T2C being mounted by The Singers’ Theatre at Kitchener’s Conrad Centre For Performing Arts. Sopranos Seinen, 15, and Reimer, 16, see chorus work in T2C — comprising some 50 male actors — as furthering their stage smarts gained in recent appearances in the Cowichan Music Festival. “We just want to experience the professional atmosphere,” Seinen said, noting theatre folks from other universities may notice their talents. “We hope to get new thoughts and ideas from teachers we’ve never worked with before,” added Reimer. Lorence got involved with director Gord Davis’ T2C show after meeting

music director Amanda Brunk, a 2012 B.C. provincial adjudicator. Brunk remembered the Cowichan talent she heard at the B.C.’s. She and Lorence later taught a musical-theatre workshop at the International School of Beijing. A Tale Of Two Cities “is about creating really beautiful singers and the director’s vision incorporates the ensemble and hones the skills of the performers to stage it in the abstract” using tableau, masks and more, said Lorence. “Gord Davis makes actors think for themselves and he’s very clear what he wants them to do. “It helps them grow and see what’s possible with a program that’s established, and nurtured — it shows what’s possible back in B.C. to continue the programs we have.”

eil Diamond once said “songs are life in 80 words or less.” The 72-year-old member of the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has shared a lot of life in a lot of songs in a career that started more than 40 years ago. That’s something that hasn’t been lost on Joey Purpura, a 39-year-old performer and impersonator based in Toronto. Purpura has lived and breathed Neil Diamond since 2004, through his tribute show, Diamond in the Rough. Purpura first became interested in Neil Diamond at a karaoke show. “I’ve always been a very good mimic ever since I was a kid,” he said. “At a karaoke place, I heard someone do Neil Diamond, and I thought it was an interesting sound, so I did a song and got a great reaction. The reason I stuck with Neil Diamond is I found his lyrics are very good. He’s a storyteller. I think that’s what drew me to it, the storytelling and the melodies of his songs.”

Joey Purpura plays Neil Diamond for a living. He’ll be in Chemainus Aug. 22. To pay tribute to Diamond, Purpura did a lot of research about Diamond online, bought a biography and also watched a lot of videos and looked at a lot of photos to see how Diamond moves and to watch his facial expressions and recreate his wardrobe. “By researching his life, not only do I sing his songs, but in between songs, I also weave highlights of his life,” said Purpura.

DEATHS CLARKE, Gordon Steven Dec. 17, 1961 – Aug. 8, 2013

All of a sudden, the world became a little quieter. The voice that expressed excitement for all things old and new, the voice that we all know and loved has been silenced. Gordy was born on December 17, 1961 at Cowichan District Hospital. He lived with his family in Honeymoon Bay for his early years where he climbed fences, watched the Big trucks and enjoyed watching hockey and being in Daddy’s Truck. Gordy’s family remained close to him throughout the years and the love they had for him showed, in how Gordy expressed his affections. Left behind to mourn his loss is Gordy’s mother and father, Geoff & Murphy (Arlene), his sister Ina of Kelowna, his sister Sharon of Ontario, his brothers Gerald (Rhonda) of Ft. St. James and Geoff (Sherry) of Kelowna, as well as nieces and nephews that loved their Uncle Gordy. Also left to mourn his loss is the many friends that Gordy had in Duncan and with Vital Society. He will be sadly missed. The family will be having a memorial on May 3, 2014.

BIRTHS deaths

Giles: Elizabeth Mai August 16, 1915 - August 15, 2013

FREE

Elizabeth Mai Giles (nee Robertson) passed away peacefully at the Chemainus Health Care Centre with members of her family in attendance. Mai was predeceased by her husband Laurence, son Donald, and brother Ross. She is survived by her son Ken, brothers Ian (Muriel) and Hamish (Anne), grandchildren Madeleine (Kim), Michael, Lexi (Chad), James, Mark, great grandchildren Laina and Paul, daughter-in-law Karen (Bill) and sister-in-law Pat (Jim), as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Mai was born in Kings Daughter’s Hospital in Duncan BC. Her early years were spent in the Cowichan Valley where her family ran general stores at various times in Chemainus, Duncan, and Cowichan Station. In 1940 she went to Zeballos BC and worked in the general store there. It was in Zeballos that she met her future husband Laurence, who operated the taxi company. They wed in 1942, with Laurence going off to war in 1943, and returning in 1945 to Zeballos until 1952, when they moved to Victoria and opened Mai’s Cafe, which they ran until retirement in 1975. In retirement Laurence and Mai traveled extensively, visiting friends across Canada and making new ones. They belonged to the Golden Rods & Reels and were long time square dancers with the Mavericks. They also went to many Air Force reunions, both in Canada and in Britain. Mai was a delight to all who knew her, with her sunny disposition and ready smile. She loved to entertain, and held many family dinners over the years. Her love for her family ran deep, and she was supportive and accepting in all they got up to, well most of it. Till the very end Mai made friends, and the family was touched by the love for her displayed by the staff at Chemainus. She was a truly good person who touched all that met her, and she will be deeply missed. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff of the Chemainus Health Care Centre for the exemplary care they took of Mai, and to Iris, Edith and Vaughn for the friendship office@cowichannewsleader.com they displayed. In Lieu of flowers please make donations to the Chemainus Health Care Auxiliary, 9909 Esplanade, Chemainus B.C., V0R 1K1 A service will be held at Sands Memorial Chapel,1803 Quadra Street Victoria, BC V8T 4B8 Saturday August 24, 2013 at 1 PM, reception to follow.

ny time now, Duncan’s Scott Aumen is going to quit auto racing. And if you believe that, we have some valuable agricultural land in the frozen north to sell you. Aumen has definitely scaled back his racing schedule at Western Speedway, but he always seems to be there soaking up the limelight during the big events. “It’s awesome, we like it,’’ said Aumen, 44, of his continually-evolving success story at the track with his great pit team. “We keep saying this really was going to be our last year.’’ The Daffodil Cup won’t be the same without him whenever Aumen does decide to pack it in. Aumen won his fifth Daffodil Cup in seven years Saturday night, putting him in a class by himself. He broke a tie for the most titles with Hall-of-Famers Billy Foster and Roy Smith. The winning streak started in 2007 and success followed in 2008 before “we sucked big-time,’’ in 2009, Aumen said. He was back in the winner’s circle in 2010 and ‘11, but missed out in 2012 before reclaiming the championship yet again. The Daffodil Cup is now a two-day total point affair. “You can’t just fluke out and win,’’ said Aumen of the formula that provides a true champion. Stats for the time trials on both days are also taken into account.

Aumen wasn’t content just to achieve the fastest time trial result. He smashed the track record on the second day. “We’re now the fastest to ever go around Western Speedway,’’ he raved. “The car was going pretty fast.’’ Aumen smashed the course record for a lap of 13.62 set by Randy Price in 2009 when he was clocked in 13.497 at approximately 115 miles per hour. The fanfare surrounding the Daffodil Cup races is incredible. “There was a ton of people down there,’’ said Aumen. “I told my boys the old guy can still do it. “The age varies hugely. In auto racing, you can race till you’re 60.’’ Aumen, known at the track as the Tire Fryer, won the first 30-lap Winged Sprint Car feature race Friday involving 20 drivers. Aumen paced himself beautifully. He was in third position on lap eight and passed Sierra Jackson for second by lap 26 with his patented slide. Aumen was all over leader Richie Larson until the white flag dropped and then he flashed to the inside to grab the lead on the only lap where he led all night. Darren Yates of Duncan took third. Saturday’s feature was won by Jeff Montgomery, with Aumen in fourth place but with enough points for the overall crown. “The car was slightly off, but not bad,’’ said Aumen. “We’re going to quit here any day,’’ he joked. “This is only our second race this year.’’

henever Team B.C. wins a medal in girls’ field hockey, Cowichan players are usually there. The U16 national tournament took place in Brampton, Ont. and both B.C. U15 teams entered earned medals, with Cowichan products playing key roles. Emma Dame won a silver medal with B.C. White while B.C. Blue claimed bronze and included Sara Goodman, Marina Ellison, Sophia Murray and Brittany Smith. B.C. White lost 2-0 to Ontario

Red in the gold medal game while B.C. Blue won the bronze by going to overtime and a shootout for a 3-2 victory against Ontario White. “B.C. White and Ontario Red, it was a one-goal difference,’’ said Goodman of B.C. Blue’s closest competition. “It was a pretty evenly-matched game for both of them.’’ B.C. Blue lost 3-2 to B.C. White and 1-0 to Ontario Red, coming that close to moving up in the standings. B.C. Blue won the rest of its games over Ontario White 3-0, Prince Edward Island 4-0 and Alberta 4-0. B.C. White’s other games in-

Youth Athlete of the Week

cluded a 5-0 win over Alberta, 1-0 over Ontario White and 7-0 over Prince Edward Island. Goodman played centre D for the Blue squad. Ellison moved around but was primarily at forward while Smith split time between mid and D and Murray saw duty at forward and mid. “We didn’t let in many goals in the entire tournament,’’ said Goodman, who at 13, was one of the younger girls in the tournament and a first-time B.C. player. “It was really good,’’ she added. “It was an amazing experience. I loved being able to represent my province with some really good people.’’

Brayden Radcliffe The provincial Peewee AA baseball championship Burnaby team paid Duncan’s Brayden Radcliffe the ultimate compliment. He was asked along with Duncan Cardinals’ teammate Cam LeSergent to join Burnaby at the Western Canadian championships in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. “I was pretty excited,’’ said Radcliffe, 13. “Obviously, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Being my last year in peewee, it was pretty amazing for me.’’ Radcliffe is a catcher and benefited from watching both his parents play the position, but knows there’s still lots of areas of his game that need work. “I think blocking balls behind the plate is always something you can improve on,’’ he said. “You still get the odd ball going past you, some that should be caught. My hitting also needs a bit of touching up. I’m trying to learn to go the other way with the ball.’’ Coach Wade Radcliffe keeps the dad part of their relationship at home when they’re on the ball field. “To be honest, he listens well, he tries to focus on what he’s doing,’’ said Wade. “We all had a bit of an off-weekend coming into the provincials,’’ said Brayden. “It happens.’’

Kassidy Keith, who’s going into Grade 10, won the champion children’s equitation and reserve champion in both the Modified Junior Amateur and Children’s Hunters on Go Shorty. Head coach Cheryl Keith was on hand to encourage, assist the riders and compete as well. The next big competition for the equestrian team is at Thunderbird Show Park in Langley Aug. 25. • Duncan’s Dan Whiteford is still a top-notch ball player at age 36. Whiteford was added to the Sooke Loggers’ roster for the Independent Softball Association championships in Illinois. The tournament didn’t quite go as well for the team as hoped, according to Whiteford. Sooke went in ranked seventh but finished 12th.

he Cowichan Valley Capitals are back in business in more ways than one — with the new regime in place. Caps’ head coach and general manager Bob Beatty put prospective players through their paces for the first time Monday during the opening of the B.C. Hockey League club’s training camp that continues through the week and leads right into the first exhibition game Friday night at Fuller Lake Arena against Alberni Valley. Off the ice, new owner Cory Wanner has made an offer to roll back prices for fans who purchase season tickets by Friday. The cost is being reduced by $100 to $197 for adults, $145 for seniors 55 and over, $120 for students and $39.50 for children 12 and under this week only. Purchases also include a $50 gift certificate from Original Joe’s. Fans can contact the Caps’ office at 250-748-9930 to take advantage of the offer. Meanwhile, Caps’ director of sales and marketing David van Deventer says he’s noticing a buzz around town and a general excitement from the public about the changes made to the Caps this year. “This excitement has been mirrored by the business community,’’ he pointed out. “Just as we will see a lot of changes on the ice, fans will also notice some changes in corporate support this year. We have been very fortunate to pick up some new sponsors this season, primarily due to the excitement of a new owner and management structure. Several new businesses in town have been very forthcoming about being involved with the Capitals. Overall, we have seen an increase in both corporate and fan support.’’

Groenendijk a member of gold medal team at Western Elite volleyball Duncan Christian School student Douglas Groenendijk enjoyed a great experience with the B.C. U16/17 boys’ volleyball team. Groenendijk and mates won the gold medal during the Western Elites Championship in Regina, winning in four sets over Saskatchewan Green in the final.

The process began for Groenendijk when he made the squad of 12 for the Baden Cup at Thompson Rivers University following tryouts at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo. Following the Baden Cup championship round, Groenendijk and 29 other players continued to train with coach

Nathan Bennett and assistant Matt Krueger. Twenty-four players were chosen to travel to Regina. Groenendijk made middle starter for his team. B.C. Red won all its pool matches and advanced to defeat Manitoba White easily before Saskatchewan Green.

Family atmosphere makes tournament special Closson Classic: The addition of four outside fastball teams helps increase the worthy proceeds Don Bodger

t’s like a big family reunion, with a few new guests invited to the gathering. The Gord Closson Classic oldtimers’ fastball tournament is one of those weekends aging ball players mark on their calendar well ahead of time and make sure they’re there. And, like any good family outing, everyone was there to offer support for a family member who’s fallen upon some difficulty. The tournament has raised considerable funds over the years to provide remarkable assistance to many people. The benefactor this year is the Erickson family (nee MacDowell), as Wendy deals with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and continues to receive treatment in Vancouver. Tournament organizer Leanne Closson pegged the total raised as of Monday afternoon at $11,278.50. “There’s a few other people that are wanting to make donations to them,’’ she said. With the addition of four out-of-town teams and many younger players and their families, bringing the total participation to 10 teams, it was just like old times again with Waldon Park packed all weekend. “It was nice to see again,’’ conceded Closson. “And lots of very generous people.’’ “It was a good crowd,’’ said Joe DiLalla, who’s been a presence at the park every year and once received the benefits of the tournament himself due to a health crisis at the time. “This year came back a little moreso because it was who was being fundraised for.’’ The tournament really benefited from the outside teams — Strawberry Vale Braves, Native Sons of Port Alberni, Bart’s of Victoria and Baker Supply of Nanaimo — in more ways than one. There were only five teams overall last year. “The teams that didn’t make it last year didn’t go to the Westerns and whatnot,’’ said DiLalla. “We lost at least three or four teams because of that.’’ All the intangibles also worked in the tournament’s

favour. “It turned out excellent weather-wise,’’ said DiLalla. “It was just right.’’ On the field, the Strawberry Vale Braves won the open division final, beating the hometown favourite Rangers 5-2. It was 1-1 in the fourth when Strawberry Vale went ahead and threatened to add another run, but had a player gunned down at the plate when Rangers’ catcher Tanner McQuarrie slapped on the tag. The Braves scored another in the fifth and held the Rangers down. “Too many guys watching third strikes,’’ said Rangers’ diehard and third base coach Don O’Keefe. “They’re not swinging the bat.’’ The Braves put the game away with two more in the

seventh, but Daryck Bell made sure the Rangers went down swinging by launching a solo homer in the seventh. Oak & Carriage won the masters’ final, 7-2 over Bart’s. Dogpatch placed third after the single elimination playoffs Sunday in the open division and Baker Supply finished fourth. Third through sixth in the masters’ division were: Spartans, Gators, Native Sons and Gord’s Geriatrics. Team MVPs were: Warren Hewitt (Rangers), Andrew Piechnik (Dogpatch), Derek Calnan (Strawberry Vale), Kirkland Lum (Baker Supply), Blair Campbell (Spartans), Myles Beauchamp (Gators), Dave Devana (Oak & Carriage), Patty Bruce (Bart’s), Eddy Smith (Native Sons) and Gord Closson (Gord’s Geriatrics).

The Danny Mattin most sportsmanlike team award went to the Geriatrics. Other award winners included: Patty Bruce (Ron Dill most inspirational player), Dom Mansueti (Mr. O’Keefe most sportsmanlike player), Tanner McQuarrie (Wilky Weekend Warrior), Jim Ingham (favourite umpire) and Kathi Britten (Chris Dame most positive person). Audie Williams attended the award ceremonies and made a $2,000 donation to the cause on behalf of the Davey Derby. Many raffle prizes were offered by individuals and merchants. The ladies take over the fields this weekend for the All Chicks tournament, with games running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Eight teams are taking part.

UPDATE: Cowichan Regional Visitor Centre

onstruction is progressing on the new Cowichan Regional Visitor Centre with an anticipated move-in of November this year. With the walls up and the roof started, it is easy to see the Centre’s final form – reminiscent of the iconic Cowichan barn, a perfect blend of old and new. The BC Forest Discovery Centre continues to be open with full programming during construction. Soon they will have enhanced parking and traffic flow, and a new, separate exit. The Chamber is working with André & Associates on nine themed display units featuring everything Cowichan. The same company designed the popular interpretive displays for the Vancouver Island Visitor Centre in Comox. The themes are based on the Destination BC (formerly Tourism BC) experiential tourism categories: Wineries & Cideries, Culinary, Outdoor Adventure, Marine, Agri-Tourism, Arts & Culture, Retail & Shopping, Celebrate Cowichan and Valley Attrac-

tions. The moveable units will be distributed throughout the concourse with attractive, life-sized displays on one side, with matching print information from businesses and organizations on the opposite side. Each unit is tablet-ready; guests can choose to do their own online research or chat face-to-face with a Visitor Centre representative. Says Chamber Director Julie Scurr, “Our goal is to capture and extend the tourism spend. We found ways to engage with visitors on their own terms – whether they are technology savvy, want take away information or prefer the personal touch.” Adjacent to the display area there will be a retail area and a rest area. Banks of windows look out to the Forest Discovery Centre and Somenos Marsh Conservation Area. There is a stunning 18’ counter from Live Edge Design where guests will consult Visitor Services personnel and make bookings and purchases. With a 28-foot ceiling, the Interior Committee is on the lookout for full size props to hang above

and add to the immersive Cowichan experience. There are also two electric vehicle-charging stations in the parking lot. The totem pole donated on long-term loan by Island Savings will stand on the west wall and compliment the rest area. Interpretive signage will introduce guests to the regions’ First Nations heritage. The twelve-foot totem pole was created by Nuu-Chuh-Nulth carver Jimmy John who later supervised his son Norman John and grandson Eddie John to complete the pole. There are fourteen Nuu-ChuhNulth First Nations whose traditional territories span 300 miles of Vancouver Island’s west coast. A portion of the territory is within the westernmost boundary of the Cowichan Valley Regional District. Anyone who feels they have a suitable item to donate for the Visitor Centre ceiling can contact the Chamber T: 250.748.1111 E: chamber@duncancc.bc.ca

Chamber News

Chamber Launches New Website The new Chamber website went live on August 13 and with it comes new opportunities and conveniences for members. As the site becomes fully operational, members will have access to: • Member-to-member pricing, • Selection of advertising opportunities • Online registration/payment. • Members’ Calendar • Forums A key enhancement is self-administered member listings in the online Business Directory. The new listings include images, descriptions and social media links. Members can assign key words and review analytics to plan their online marketing and make the most of their Directory presence. The site includes a mobile version so all members’ listings are available to smart phones and tablets. Members will have the option to upgrade their listing for an enhanced presence and choose from selection of advertising place-

ments throughout the site. Contact the Chamber office to discuss

these opportunities or for any conversation about the new website.

Chamber Reaches 400 Members Last September the Chamber’s roster stood at 280 members and we set ourselves a goal of 400 members in 2013. And as of August 8th we are 400 members strong – an increase of 44%. The Chamber increased the number of regular events with Lunch ‘n Learn’s, Luncheons, Mixers and seminars. The eNews was split into two editions to carry more information and resources in a readable format, and event reminders go out weekly. “We listened to the market and adjusted the types of

membership we offer,” said Chamber President George Gates. “And we’ve been more proactive when it comes to being sure members use the marketing and networking potential that goes with membership. Word of mouth is the best advertising and it’s a real vote of confidence when referrals roll in.” As a member-driven organization the Chamber’s success lies with the many members who connect, contribute, innovate and watch for synergetic opportunities to drive the region’s economy.

Small Business Showcase:

Show & Shred The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) has been celebrating entrepreneurism through Small Business Week for 33 years. The event originated in the Fraser Valley in 1979 and was so successful that BDC took it national in 1981. Small Business Week takes place every year during the third full week of October. This year the Duncan Cowichan Chamber celebrates Small Business Week with our first Small Business Showcase: Show & Shred on October 23. Island Documents Shredding and Storage (IDSS) is bringing the shredding truck and providing shredding by donation, with proceeds going to the Chamber. Businesses will have tabletop displays, and the opportunity to share their expertise and promote their business at spotlight presentations throughout the day. The Cowichan News Leader Pictorial is sponsoring the event, and 89.7 SunFM’s Troy Scott will be broadcasting live. Cowichan Sound and Cellular is providing bags for all the take away information from the exhibitors. The event is open to the public to attend, but at present, exhibitors are members only. Thinking of starting a business or growing your current business? Owners and prospective entrepreneurs will appreciate the Community Futures presentation on start up financing. Global Vocational will cover the selection of grants available to hire and train staff. And we invite everyone to clean out those old records and bring them along for shredding and secure disposal.

Long time entrepreneurs, Gunn and Kirk Yardley were looking for a new business opportunity after Gunn sold a previous business in Chemainus.

Enjoy the Cobble Hill Fair This Saturday, August 24th Welcome to the 104th Cobble Hill Fall Fair This year the fair’s theme is, “Whats the Buzz.” Bees and there value to agriculture. This year will be our second year of the expanded area across the road from the community hall, the Cobble Hill Commons area. A great area to showcase more agriculture at our fair. At this time we would like to thank all the hard working volunteers who come out every year to make the Cobble Hill Fall Fair a great success, be the gate staff or livestock exhibitors. Over the years it has been amazing to me how the Cobble Hill Fall Fair continues to operate with its volunteers. They are always front and center when needed. Also a special thank you to all our sponsors for for making the Cobble Hill Fall Fair come together. As a member of the farm community, I am pleased we have an organization in our area that promotes the agricultural industry and all it offers to us.
