Rave performers coming


he performance of Origins, a feature length theatrical comedy, will be held Friday, May 11 at the Roberts Creek Hall. The show weaves together music, dance, puppetry, multimedia, and circus arts to tell a story of love, loss, corporate power, genetic engineering, and propaganda, bashing apart the binaries of good and evil in a grueling quest to save the world. Superhero Boy Band’s mandate is to produce the-

atre shows that promote personal transformation and community empowerment through parodying superheroes and boy bands, and by raising questions on perfection, propaganda, and the shortcomings of dualistic perspectives. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Tickets available at Gaia’s Fair Trade (Gibsons Landing), MELOmania (Roberts Creek) and Strait Music (Sechelt). For information contact Judy at 886-7334.

he BCSPCA on the Coast will host their annual Open House on Sunday, May 6 from noon to 3 pm. Coast residents are invited to come down and check out the facilities, meet some of the furry residents and visit with the staff and volunteers. The annual Open House is the SPCA’s way to raise awareness of some of the issues they face each year, in-

Donations are always welcome to help provide a much-needed community service. The SPCA’s mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia.

embers of the public are invited to attend the Battle of Atlantic Service, Sunshine Coast, to be held on Sunday May 6 at 11am. The service will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 140.

The article also credited the Coasters Car Club with donation of a 1971 Plymouth Duster for

repair and conversion to a dragster to be raffled for benefit of Cool School. In fact, the Coasters Car Club is not involved with Cool School, the restoration or raffl e project. Raffle tickets will be available starting in mid-May. Brenda Masich, Elphi’s automotive teacher, previously taught at Brooks Secondary in Powell River. Masich has

Each year, they gather on the first Sunday in May, along with the Royal Canadian Navy and other Naval associations across Canada, to remember shipmates and those of the merchant navy who gave their lives at sea during the Second World War and particularly on the North Atlantic convoy runs. Although they are all veterans of the RCN and no longer active, their motto remains: “We Still Serve”.
