Shop local / think local

Part of what makes our neighbourhoods special are the businesses that thrive within them. As Saanich Peninsula entrepreneurs we strive to meet the needs of and give back to our diverse community. We ask that you please take a minute to think about the large potential of your consumer dollar. You are investing in your community by supporting its unique businesses. Appreciate what makes our neighbourhoods different. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an inherent part of the distinctive character of our neighbourhoods; that is what brought us here and will keep us here. Shop local and stay connected to the merchants in your community.

you hav ea choice where to Spend your mo ney

ur put yo ere y wh mone S ouSe i h r u yo When you shop local, three times the revenue remains in your community, supporting parks, schools and more! For every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $45 goes back into the community and our tax base. For every $100 spent at a chain store, only $14 comes back.

live local / give local Community involvement works both ways. Many retailers believe in being involved: giving back to their communities is the right thing to do and they cheerfully donate to a variety of local causes, charities, fund raisers and sports teams. When businesses “give back,” communities appreciate the support and reciprocate.

help the environment Independent businesses make purchases requiring less transportation and are usually located in the heart of small communities rather than “on the fringe,” meaning less impact on the environment.

If you have a favourite business in your community, please continue to support it all year round. This will ensure we are all here for the long haul!

get better Service Local businesses often hire people who have a better understanding of the products they’re selling and take more time to get to know their customers.

our future iS n

ow

By supporting in dependent businesses today, you are investing in a unique and sustainable future for the Saanich Pe ninsula commun ity. Small business ow ners live locally and are therefore more invested in the future of our neig hbourhoods. Loca l entrepreneurs ar e also the largest employer nationa lly and they prov ide the most jobs to new residents.

Sidney Fine Art Show Call to Artists The Sidney Fine Art Show, one of B.C.’s premier fine art exhibitions, is celebrating 10 years of showcasing B.C. artists. Each October, the Mary Winspear Centre is transformed into a world-class gallery, providing both well-known and emerging artists an opportunity to showcase their work. This year the show will be held from October 12th to 14th, attracting thousands of visitors to Sidney and the Saanich Peninsula. Artists submit their work for adjudication in September, with three qualified jurors judging over 1,200 pieces of artwork to select approximately 350 pieces for the show. The fine art show, which is run by the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula (CACSP), is not for profit and is run totally by volunteers – more than 300 volunteers will work over 4,000 hours on the show. The Sidney Fine Art Show continues to be especially important to the local art community. Not only do artists receive 80% of their sales revenue, but any surplus is used by the CACSP in support of its many diverse programs. This contribution enables the CACSP to continue many of its programs, including the ArtSea Festival, summer children’s and senior’s art classes and the First Nations fall show, as well as provide grants to member groups and to operate the Tulista Arts Centre. Artists interested in participating should complete the call to artists form and submit it by July 13th. The event is also an opportunity for volunteers to be involved in all stages of the process, from art intake to operation of the show. For further information and applications for artists and volunteers, visit www.sidneyfineartshow.com.

CACSP Artists' Studio Tour The ever popular Spring Saanich Peninsula Artists' Studio Tour will take place Saturday, June 9th and Sunday, June 10th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A very colourful brochure (with studio locations/ map) is available in the Peninsula’s Coffee Shops at various stores in Sidney and at Michell Bros. Farm at Island View Road. Each of the 26 studios/venues has a tasteful representative picture of what visitors can expect. The brochure/map is also available online at www.cacsp.com under “events.” Along with returning artists to the Tour, we have several new artists, which always makes these Studio Tours fresh and exciting. The Community Arts Council, in the Tulista Park Arts Centre, is opening their Summer Artisans Show with this Studio Tour. The Centre

proves to be a favourite Tour destination because of the wide variety of arts and crafts by local artists. There is a tremendous variety of arts involved in this Tour, including a wide selection of award-winning painters, fabric arts, paper arts, glass art and jewelry, several well-known bronze artists and splendid wood turnings. Chris Paul will be showing his fine Coast Salish art works in several mediums. Five highly talented artists will be showing and demonstrating at the wonderful Muse Winery – drop by for a large taste of art and small taste of great wines. Again this Tour, CACSP is happy to have remarkable glass artist Christopher Windsor – also in a winery at De Vine Vineyards. The Artists’ Studio Tour, sponsored and organized by The Community Arts Council, is provided free to the public so that the artists on our wonderful part of the Island can show and demonstrate just what and how they do what they do to make the area a better place to visit and live. We acknowledge the support of the Town of Sidney, the Municipality of Central Saanich, the District of North Saanich and the Province of BC through BC Arts Council. Submitted by Richard Julien, CACSP Coordinator Studio Tours. Artwork shown above: Little Girl, by Judy McLaren.

There is only one place you need to go when you’re looking for a great gift for him! Birthdays, Anniversaries, Father’s Day and all other special occasions. Complimentary gift wrapping and a no hassle return policy make gift giving easy!
