Bertie search support appreciated
By the way, did you hear:
• Tina Wood wants to thank all the volunteers who assisted in the search for Bertie the Jack Russell stolen from her farm on Lakes Road.
“Our family has been blessed with the kindness of strangers all eager to help bring our beloved Bertie home. Sadly we have not been able to locate him and the reward did not bring in the information we hoped for,” she writes. “The one positive aspect of this sad story has been the support from the members of this community and it has restored our faith despite our grief.”
• Brentwood College’s Ian McPherson tells us the school has created a new Grade 8 prep program aimed exclusively at Grade 8 Day students, starting in the fall of next year.
• Kelly Abbott tell us Thrifty Foods in Mill Bay donated hot dogs , pop, a barbecue and cover for a recent fundraiser aimed at sending Kathy White dancers Madison Robinson and Jade Macnab to the BATD junior Highland Scholarships on Oct.4 in Niagara Falls , Ont.
• We wanted to pass along a plug for the organizing committee of the Sip and Savor fundraiser for autism in Mill Bay last month (otherwise known as Wet Canucks on a Barge). Congrats to Janet Docherty, Steve Housser, Sonja Nagle, Mandy Parker, Gibson Pierce, Andrew Purdey, Duane Shaw, Gordon and Leslie Smith for doing such a great job and for pledging to try and top it next year.
• Thanks to Hayley Picard for the tip about the faculty and staff of Queen Margaret’s School holding a Food Bank Drive Challenge for non-perishable food items for the food bank. Spearheaded by Tracy Arden, the effort resulted in 1,139 pounds of food being donated, with the administration department taking first place. QMS hopes to challenge other schools to take up this fun challenge next Thanksgiving.
• The Johannson Block in downtown Chemainus — which includes Rexall to Dollars & Sense, but not Small Tall Treats and the empty store beside it — plus the liquor store building and Chemainus Foods’ building have been purchased by Anthem Properties of Vancouver. Welcome to the new property manager Kim Harrap, who works from their Victoria office.
