PQ Fish and Game FUNdraiser

Another successful Parksville Qualicum Fish & Game Association Fundraiser was held March 24 at the Dorman Range. Club shooters were out in full force having a great time while supporting Oceanside Stroke Recovery therapy programs. Oceanside Stroke Recovery volunteers were on hand to help prepare and serve lunch as well as help at the registration table. Thanks to Genelle Guthrie, Kathy Eades and Kathy’s sister, Nancy Paruch for their expertise in the kitchen! Not to be forgotten, Marie Randall was the OSR person behind the registration desk helping Dianne Upper who we understand came out of retirement to do the registration for our event. To top off the day, Bob Davenport invited Oceanside Stroke Recovery members to join the club members for lunch. Oceanside Stroke Recovery Society is very grateful to be partnered with such a caring group of people.

About 20 members celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in fine form at a pot luck lunch. Kathleen entertained the group with some hilarious Irish jokes as only she can tell! Thanks to Kathleen and Suzanne for setting up and decorating the room the night before. The St. Paddy’s day decorations were perfect! Thanks to Jean Treby for doing photographic duties.

Tidal Treasures

Michele Munro and Jill Atwood from the Arbutus Toastmasters Club in Parksville joined us at our Friday meeting.  Michele recounted her story of finding Tidal Treasures, including “fake” treasures on the Parksville beach.  From November through April, you can discover glass treasures on the beaches of Vancouver Island’s Oceanside region. Beaches include: Rathtrevor Provincial Park, Resort Row and Parksville Community Beach. Thanks, Michele! Our group has never been so quiet during a presentation!

The best treasure is living in Oceanside!
