Kaatza Players get just dessert

By the way, did you hear:

• Lake Cowichan’s Kaatza Lakeside Players  are celebrating Theatre Week (Dec. 3 to 8) by sponsoring a Dessert Contest. The Shaker Mill, Jakes At The Lake, Aroma and  the Cow Café will be creating  “spectacular” desserts to reflect  the  stage production,  A Christmas Carol.  Glenda J. Burg tells us that on Nov. 30 the desserts will be judged at the Lake Cowichan District Seniors’ Centre, with the winner becoming the official dessert of  the Lakeside Players, during Theatre Week.

• Cowichan Green Community needs your votes in the BC Hydro Community Champions competition. This summer the CGC worked with a group of youth to retrofit the building at Duncan’s Kinsmen Park and have a chance to win $10,000 to fund the next stage of their project.  People can vote once per day until Dec. 7 here.
