Sam Koffski is back in the Den again

By the way, did you hear:

• Sam Koffski is poised to get another moment in the spotlight courtesy of the Dragons’ Den. Son Sid Koffski tells us the Duncan inventor of the Multi-horse workbench will be among the successful dealmakers featured in tonight’s Dragons On The Road season finale follow-up episode, which starts at 8 p.m. on CBC.

• Sabrina Francis tell us her Cedar Ridge Canine Care on Mays Road is hosting a local doggie fun day Saturday as a fundraiser for a new local animal shelter. Francis and Alexa Linton of Cowichan-based BalanceWorks Wellness teamed up, called in the canine experts and began to create the first annual Pure Potential Canine Play Day with fun activities and guest experts in holistic veterinary medicine, rehabilitation, canine massage and more. Reserve your space at or by calling 250-710-8776. All donations will go to the Victoria Humane Society.

• Linda More’s early start worked wonders when she won the March Early Bird draw in the Shop Chemainus Contest. She is thrilled to take home $200 worth of goodies from 49th Parallel Grocery and $50 Chemainus Dollars to spend as she likes. The contest offers more than $5,000 in prizes including a Grand Prize of $3,000 Chemainus Dollars. Organizer Dee Kinnee says ask for an entry form every time you buy something from a participating Chemainus business.

• Also in Chemainus, Jeanne Ross says mural washing will be ongoing this week in The Little Town That Did, in preparation for the coming tourist season.

• Tracy Arden tells us B.C. Attorney General (and 1970 Queen Margaret’s School grad) Suzanne Anton, will be the guest of honour at an afternoon reception April 5. Anton will speak about the school’s motto of service to others during the Vancouver Alumni Afternoon Reception for alumni and their families in Burnaby.

• Kevin Hardonk is raving about the folks at Adam’s Tarp and Tool after what he is calling the best service ever after his battery and jumper cables failed during a February snowstorm. A store rep came out in the storm with a battery, cables and a jumpstart. “That’s why we should all shop local small business,” he posted on the NLP’s Facebook page. “Hats off to you, Adam and staff.”
