The people of the valley generously donated to a bottle drive for Eeva MacLochlen (Hakala) a little more than a year ago that gave her hope and much-needed support to fight a brain tumor.

She died last week, prompting friends to organize a special day in her memory.

The Let’s Shake It For Eeva EEVAlution gathering will take place Monday, Aug. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Wooden Boat Museum in Cowichan Bay.

“We are starting an EEVAlution to carry on Eeva’s beautiful spirit,’’ noted friend Debbie Smith, who also organized last year’s hugely-successful bottle drive. “If you would like to give up a coffee a day in exchange for a shake a day to support her family, please join us so we can help Eeva realize her dream of empowering people to take control of their physical and financial health.’’

For information, contact Smith (250-884-7911) or Jayne Williams (250-510-6314.
