Tomatoes and Help Wanted!!!

Sylvia  Dwyer   has a lot of green tomatoes and would like to know if anyone would like them. Please contact her at   bobsylv@shaw.ca    

Publicity: Morganne Pickering is asking for help with publicity. She is in the process of writing up a description of what that  job might look like. There are several events in 2017 therefore  we are looking for several grandmothers to help out so the work load won’t be so great.  If you think you could help even a little, please contact Morganne for more information.

Many thanks,

Victoria Cycle Tour

This weekend the Victoria Grandmothers will be holding their annual Cycle tour. This is a major fundraiser for them raising approxdimately $45,000 for SLF.
They start their tour in Campbell River, overnight in Qualicum Beach, overnight I believe in Duncan and then onto Victoria.
Each year they ask us to have a refreshment break for them at Nanoose Place.
They will be stopping at Nanoose Place on Saturday, Sept 10 at approx. 9:30 am. There will be 29 cyclists and 5 support drivers.
This is a very grueling ride for them so it would be nice if we could support and cheer them on.
They will be travelling along Hwy. 19A and then turning off onto West Bay Road (by the Museum) at approx 8:30- 8:45am. It would be great if any members of our group could meet at the Visitor Information Centre (back) and show our support, or better yet, come to Nanoose Place and chat with them.
