Can you believe that it is already the end of January? How quickly time flies. Here are some of the events coming up around the West Shore.
The WestShore Chamber of Commerce welcomed the local business community out to its January mixer, kindly hosted by the B.C. Hockey League’s Victoria Grizzlies at 100.3 The Q Centre last night (Jan. 28) before the hockey game.
“This year will see the WestShore Chamber of Commerce working more closely with the business community than ever before, to make sure that we truly are the voice of business in the West Shore,” says Chamber president Doug Kobayashi.
Attendees got a chance to meet new executive director Julie Lawlor and let her know what’s happening on the West Shore. If you have any questions for her, please contact the WestShore Chamber of Commerce at 250-478-1130.
Over at Westshore Town Centre, there is some exciting news. They are thrilled to announce the installation of their custom, first-to-market children’s play area inside the shopping centre. The play area will transform the north courtyard to include a giant cottonwood tree surrounding the column, animals indigenous to British Columbia, a float plane, beaver dam entrance and much more.
The grand opening of the play area happens Saturday Feb. 7 at 11 a.m. and the first 50 families in attendance will receive a gift bag.
The grand opening kick-starts a weekend of activities at the mall called the Family Festival. For more information please visit westshoretowncentre.com.
